I would say these people have it in one sock. Wonder what the cost of this operation was from start to finish?

This is arguably necessary, and an amazing feat of engineering and logistics. Trouble is, I'm compulsively conservative. As a result compulsive conservation beacons to me. So I recycle and repurpose everything to maintain and element of restraint.

Wait, somebody please explain around 14:45 we break an axle, blow several tires, get bogged in deep holes of mud! THEN, two brief safety meetings resolves all of those transport issues and we are back moving again. HOW?

what is done with the surface overburden, which looks like very fertile soil ?

THIS IS JUST A LONG PROPAGANDA MOVIE

20 millimeters is actuality 3/4 of an inch. 12 meters long is really 40 feet. Metric sucks. They should get prisoners and welfare guys to the dredging for free.

17th wealthiest nation 😂 Attained by selling their natural resources so those in the west can have beer cans. No a good business model.

This plays like a video game

Dear Boskalis: if tropical rain showers are your "worst nightmare", you might wish to despoil Greenland, Labrador, or Alaska, instead. I actually doubt this is worse environmentally than any other large mine. All metals are dirty, apart from what you can pan by hand standing shin deep in frigid glacial runoff.

Just hope when the mining has finished they put back everything and restore nature back to its beautiful self.

Together those two Corporation's are the Hand's down Entire World's Leader's in Environmental Pollution & destruction for profit These two power houses are responsible for more pollution and harm to the environment than even the Nuclear waste industry it's because of who these two are that afford's them the News Media anonymity . If you have Alcoa in your name well you have nothing to fear and if you have environmental laws in place that say NO well don't you worry because with the political power they have they won't be Law's for much longer . Just take a good look at what Alcoa did to take care of the huge expense of getting rid of the highly toxic Waste Byproduct from the production of Aluminum ,If you answered they sold it to Municipal water department's to treat drinking water and sold it under the fraud it can be used to fight tooth decay Yes your correct what used to cost them million's to get rid of they now sell to Municipal drinking water Departments Only we later learned that was a complete Lie because it in fact does nothing to treat tooth decay The Owner of Alcoa started a school and paid scientists to claim it fight's tooth decay when it is in fact deadly and destroys healthy living human tissue . So this huge propaganda movie is total Bunk ..So they will take pristine wet land but make sure they call it swamp land not highly valuable wetlands that million's of migratory foul use to nest and breed ..Because these are one of the puppet regime's I told you about we install that allow Multinational Corporation's free rein to do whatever they like to there natural resources and exploit it anyway they like these brutal dictator's put down any decent in these area's and it's those victims we see in the caravan's coming to our southern boarders ... WE create these situations with the help of our own State depts & our own Government hit men the CIA ... Any Native Tribe dare say no well there are hundreds of story's where these disgracefully destructive Corporation's have the puppet regime president send in the Death squad's to deal {Kill} the Native tribe's getting in the way and that Dictator get's huge sum's of retirement cash to live real well off .Just think of 500 miles of destruction and any Native tribes in the way get moved real fast .. I'm a little disappointed our News Media fail's miserably to report on any of this ever We will NEVER learn of any of the destruction these multinational's do Only how well Wall street is doing . Can you imagine that 20 time;s a week we hear how great wall streets doing BUT NOT A WORD on how well Our Mother earth is doing ?

Enjoying destroying the planet, guys? Enjoy then, till you eat and breathe poisons. And the purpose of this is?? To further breed like rabbits, right? And... money, yes, money is everything, including the curse of all this destruction.
