Unfortunately for us sounds like the positive impact for TC may not be immediate. The picture I saw looked like it was only one section of wall at the mine.
(Reuters) - Mining group Rio Tinto's Bingham Canyon operation in Utah is still producing copper even though mining operations were suspended after a landslide on Wednesday, a spokesman said on Friday.
Justin Jones, a spokesman for Rio Tinto Kennecott, which operates the mine, could not say how long the smelting and refining process could continue with stockpiled material. He said that is still being assessed.
"The mine itself is very large, and there are possibilities that we can begin starting portions of the mine, you know, within a few days, thus not interrupting the production of copper," he said.
Jones said investigators hope to re-enter the mine as soon as there is daylight at the site, which is near Salt Lake City, Utah.
Just did a google search on that mine. Those pictures show that mine is devastated. It had destroyed many vehicles, roads, and the structures not just the pit wall. They won't allow workers anywhere near there. Great for TC. Glad no one was hurt!
