Open Pit Mine Viewing

Posted on 8th February 2020


Phalaborwa Open Pit Mine is South Africa’s largest open pit mine and copper and vermiculite are extracted here. You can drive through the mine operations and up to a ¬†viewing point a hill beside the open pit to get a good perspective of its size and the rest of the operations plus a wonderful panoramic view of the whole of Phalaborwa. A mecca for any budding geologist!
