This mine was started in the Stalin period to supply industrial diamond to the Soviet Union. The Digging commenced in the year 1955, making it the second world’s largest hole dug by man. It’s nearly a mile wide and is obvious from space. According to rumor, it is said that aircraft hardly fly that route for fear of being sucked down by the air current.
