    Bingham canyon copper mine Kennecott Copper's Bingham Canyon Mine from a commercial aircraft in December with snow cover. The mine is the world's largest man-made excavation. Located 28 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, the mine is 2 3/4-miles across and 3/4-mile deep. It is so big that it can be seen from outer space.

Alaska ~ Kennecott Mine Viewed from the Glacier. It's a short hike out onto the lateral moraine where you can get this view of the Kennecott mine. It's steep, rocky, and not advised unless you have experience walking on moraines and glaciers.

We used to live in Copperton, at the base of Bingham Canyon Copper Mine. The road up Butterfield Canyon will take you (in the summer) up to a mountain top on the Southwest corner of the mine with a great birdseye view of the mine and the Wasatch Front.
