Contest #506: the town at the Argyle diamond mine in northwest Australia

Contest #506 shows the small town that helps support the huge Argyle diamond mine in northwest Australia.

The mine opened in the mid-1980’s and is the world’s largest producer of pink diamonds, now being coveted after years of being thought to be just dirty.

The mine is slated to close in a few years as the supply of diamonds runs out. It started off as an open pit mine but is now mainly underground.
