Genuinely surprised that noone got this one, above:

Its the Bingham Canyon mine in Utah and has a public viewing area and a big tourist footprint. When I went and took this pic (about 25 years ago) I was a bit disappointed - sure it was big, but not really big ... and then I turned around and realised I was 1/3 into the pit!

The mine presently is 1.2 km deep, 4km wide and covers almost 8 sq km. About 17 million tonnes of copper produced.
