1. Kimberley Big Hole - South Africa


Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world,

this 1097 meter deep mine yielded over 3 tons of diamonds

before being closed in 1914.

2. Glory Hole - Monticello Dam, California


This is the 'Glory Hole' at Monticello dam, and it's the largest in the world of this type of spillway, its size enabling it to consume 14,400 cubic feet of water every second.

3. Bingham Canyon Mine, Utah


This is supposedly the largest man-made excavation on earth. Extraction began in 1863 and still continues today, the pit increasing in size constantly. In its current state the hole is ¾ miles deep and 2.5 miles wide.

4. Great Blue Hole , Belize


This incredible geographical phenomenon known as a

blue hole is situated 60 miles off the mainland of Belize .

There are numerous blue holes around the world,

but none as stunning as this one.

5. Mirny Diamond Mine , Serbia


It's an absolute beast and holds the title of largest

open diamond mines in the world. At 525 meters

deep, with a top diameter of 1200 meters, there's

even a no-fly zone above the hole due to a few

helicopters having been sucked in.

6. Diavik Mine, Canada


The mine is so huge and the area so remote that it has

its own airport with a runway large enough to accommodate a Boeing 737.

It looks equally cool when the surrounding water is frozen.

early this year in Guatemala . The hole swallowed

a dozen homes and killed at least 3 people.
