The Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as Kennecott Copper Mine, is an open-pit mining operation southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah. The mine is the largest man-made excavation in the world and is considered to have produced more copper than any other mine in history – more than 19 million tonnes. It earned its National Historic Landmark designation in 1966.
