Deep holes are normally formed after the occurrence of different geographical processes or phenomena. Some of the deepest strange holes are also considered as one of the most beautiful site in the world. If we study in depth about different deep holes, then it comes to our knowledge that some deep holes are formed occasionally and some are made by men when they were in search of the mining wealth.
This is considered as one of the most deepest and strange holes on earth. It is considered as the world’s largest copper mine. This largest copper mine is situated in Chile. The operations of this copper mine are controlled and carried out by a state owned enterprise known as ‘’Codelco’’.
9. Udachnaya Pipe
This is also included in the list of deepest and strange holes on earth. Udachnaya pipe have huge reservoirs of diamond and is situated in Russia. The operations and other activities of this pipe are controlled and monitored by Alrosa which is a Russian diamond company.
Different types of research studies have shown this fact that this mine have around 225.8 million carats of diamonds.
There are different types of research studies that have concluded this fact that this hole was caused by collapse of surface layer and is known with different names in the world. Some of Sinkhole’s famous names include the sink-hole, shake hole, swallet etc.
This is also considered as one of the deepest hole in the world. The formation of sinkhole involves different activities including different natural processes such as erosion, suffusion and different types of human activities.
7. Diavik Mine
This is also considered as one of the deepest and strange hole on earth. This diamond mine is situated in Canada and it is playing an important role in overall development of economy of Canada. The operations of this mine are managed and controlled by a subsidiary of Rio Tinto Group.
6. Mirny Diamond Mine
As far as Mirny Diamond Mine is concerned, its name is also included in the list of deepest and strange holes of the world. This diamond mine is now inactive and is located in Eastern Siberia, Russia.
The Mirny diamond mine has a diameter of around 1,200 meters. Different types of research studies have shown this fact that Mirny diamond mine has the second largest excavated hole in the world.
5. Great Blue Hole
This is also considered as one of the deepest and strange holes on earth. It is situated at the coast of Belize, a rather beautiful beach. Geographical studies have found that Great Blue hole has a circular shape and is around 124 meters deep. These studies have also estimated this fact that this hole was formed as a result of different series of quaternary glaciation when the sea level was at its lowest level.
