Today’s infographic shows the highest and lowest places on Earth, including both man-made and natural points.
The Bingham Canyon Mine, which we discuss in our copper porphyry infographic, is the deepest open pit mine in the world at 3,182 ft. The deepest underground gold mines are 4x as deep: Mpongeng and TauTona Mines, both located in South Africa, are about 12,800ft deep into the Earth’s crust. To put things in perspective, this is around the depth of the sunken Titanic and the deepest diving mammals in the ocean.
