Aftermath of the largest North American landslide EVER after it dropped 165 MILLION tons down a Utah copper mine

This is the stunning aftermath of the largest landslide ever recorded in North America, which saw 165 million tons of earth dropping more than a half mile at a Utah copper mine last month.

The natural disaster cut mining production in half at the Bingham Canyon Mine after the April 10 incident.

Operators rushed to bring out all workers and equipment from the mine before a massive landslide ripped through the canyon. It started at the mine's northeastern corner and then plummeted to very bottom of the mine, some six-tenths of a mile down.

Miraculously, there were no injuries.
