Minas Peruanas... Las que Crean y Consumen

Desde lejos en el espacio la NASA envía estas imágenes

Toquepala Copper Mine, Peru

Located in the Andes Mountains in southern Peru, the Toquepala mine is 1.5 miles wide and 2,300 feet deep. The mine’s main output is copper, but it also produces gold, silver and molybdenum. The railroad that was constructed to carry the ore 60 miles to the coast can be seen winding down a canyon left of the center, heading southwest from the mine. This image was captured by astronauts aboard the International Space Station on Sept. 22, 2003.
