Ever wondered where all the gold and diamonds in the world come from? Perhaps you have stumbled across a large mine while exploring on Google Earth but now there is a online platform that enables you to find all the mines on Earth and its called Mining Atlas
Mining Atlas provides a 3D interactive platform that enables you to take tours of mines and their surrounding areas, helping you to understand more about their scale and their impact on the surrounding areas.
The website is aimed at mining industry professionals but everyone might be interested to know whether there are any mines in the area where they live and work. Mining Atlas even has the location of old mines that have long since been closed and covered up.
Just a note: double-click on any icon to activate the tour for that mine.
