  1. This is the Mir o Mirny Mine, located in Mirny, Eastern Siberia, Russia. The mine is 525 meters (1,722 ft) deep (4th in the world) and has a diameter of 1,200 m (3,900 ft).
    The second largest excavated hole in the world.
    Very interesting place!

  2. Mina Mirna, Rusia, el mineral explotado es el diamante (113° 59.645’E,62° 31.739’N)

  3. Mirny, Sakha Republic, Russia with a view of the famous helicopter sucking diamond pit mine.

  4. Mir (or Mirny) Diamond Mine, next to the town of Mirny in the Sakha Republic of Russia.

    This was more difficult to find than I expected.
    After finding a list of ~50 Open-pit mines (which was easy), it turned out that this was one of the last ones on the list I looked up. I was beginning to worry it might not be on the list!
