There is a lot of gold mining in western Australia. That's why Kalgoorlie is here.
Workers pull 800,000 ounces of gold a year out of the Super Pit, the largest open pit gold mine in Australia, which will eventually stretch 3.6 kilometres long, 1.6km wide and go down to a depth of more than 600m.
Whatever. There's a huge bucket from the loaderes they use in the mine you can play on, so Ada, the linguist's daughter, and I, did! Photo by some random woman who almost managed to actually get us in mid air. Almost.
