Mining and quarrying is an environmentally-responsible industry that makes temporary use of land, and then reclaims it for other purposes, such as natural space, recreational areas and commercial and residential development.

In fact, after mines and quarries have been reclaimed, it can be very difficult to tell that an operation was ever there.

Take our “Find the Mine” quiz and see if you can guess which pictures are of reclaimed mines and quarries, and which aren’t.

It’s harder than you think!
