Underground mine

Underground mines allow to extract minerals buried deep underneath earth's surface. A series of tunnels provides access to the ore deposits.

Visually, an underground mine may look like an anthill. In reality, it is a huge network of vertical and horizontal tunnels that allow to reach the ore deposit. Once extracted, the ore is brought to the surface through the shaft and directed to the concentrator. Inside an underground mine, there is an access ramp, galleries, access shafts and ventilation shafts.
