The majority of people will have seen mines along with mining operations frequently and almost everyone will have come into contact with some type of precious metal as it is around everyone.

This might be in the form of platinum used in the making of cars or gold that is used to make rings and other forms of jewelry. All of the metal, however it is used, has taken a long journey to get where it is.

Photos That Will Amaze Show Off All Of The Metal Extracted From Mines

There are many resources that tell people just how gold along with other types of metal is extracted, but sometimes it is difficult to grasp the real magnitude of some of the mining operations needed to get that gold. Resources might tell us that 1 million metric tons of metal has come from out of a single mine and this may sound a lot. However, people do not really grasp how much that number means and so does not mean a great deal as people cannot picture that amount in the mind.

Now an artist has come up with an idea that shows the end product from the mines and which puts the mine into perspective as a whole. The artist has come up with a set of images that are some of the most mesmerizing that people have ever seen to date in a project with the title of “For What It’s Worth”.

Dillon Marsh is a photographer from South Africa and he said that he wanted to quantify the results coming out of many mines is one of the most visually striking ways possible. One of the inspirations for the project was the economic boom along with the loss that mining can often bring to towns. Marsh said that it was an industry that had shaped history along with the economy of the country and it had done so radically.

Marsh went on to say that mining operations can bring many thousands of jobs to workers into what had previously been places that were quiet and this kick started the economies that were focused on the industry. He said that when mines started to dry, they were seen as unprofitable and mining towns are then sometimes left and they then erode back into the ground.

To create the series of images Dillon took photographs of the original mines. He gathered data about the amounts of metal that had been collected and developed computer graphic images of the huge masses of metals in proportions that are real. He then inserted the GCI models into the photographs and rendered them. This left him with real insight into a mesmerizing magnitude of what is often a very surprising small amount that comes from certain mines. Dillon said that when people see the huge mining operations, they do not realize how little is being extracted from the mines that can be made into metals that can be used.

The images were all taken from the mines that are local to Dillon in South Africa in the region he lives. He said that they encompass copper mostly, while one of the photographs demonstrates platinum.
