Countdown to Collision: Mega Mine Australia

Producing 4 million dollars of gold a day, it’s one of the biggest gold operations in the world. This film will follow the miners over the course of a week as they blast, crush and process the rock in one of the hottest places on the planet. To meet their target they must overcome a series of critical challenges, using super-sized machinery and ingenious engineering. Beneath the pit, there are 3,500 kilometres of old mine shafts that could give way at any time. We reveal the technology that enables them to shift 150,000 tonnes of rock a day in this dangerous environment: how massive explosions are controlled to prevent flying rocks, how eye-scanning lasers spot tired truck drivers, and how they extract the precious gold from the rock. One by one, we uncover the ingenious inventions that ensure super pit can avert… a COUNTDOWN TO COLLISION.
