      wow, a tad bigger than in the 70s when I was last there.

      I haven't seen it from this angle - looks great - like the superpit is slowly swallowing the town :)

      It's often said that it is...just think of how much gold must be buried under the city of Kal...I'm sure someone would love to get to it!

      what is that bright green spot at the bottom right corner of the photo? looks sort of out of place!

      Ahh, I'd never really noticed that...I think it's simply the water at the bottom of a now disused pit.

      Nice shot of my workplace. I drive a bomb truck at the superpit, and find all aerial shots of the place strangely addictive.
