In the thirst for material possessions, humans spread scars on the surface of the Earth

When we dig into the ground to reveal precious metals, fossil fuel bags or a mineral seam dating back to a thousand years, we tear a page of Earth’s history away. Every material removed from the depths tells a dramatic past of hot volcanoes, cold ice ages, green-drenched rainforests or interactions between the Earth and unknown celestial bodies. . It took millions of years for precious matter to settle down and crystallize into minerals, but only with machines and explosives we can remove the past in just a few minutes.

Since the date of knowing the infinite amount of wealth (?) Lying underground, curiosity and driving force for social development have prompted people to dig deep into the mysterious world. It is not wrong to assert that mining makes up the modern world we know, but we do not know how heavy the influence of mining on nature is. Maybe when you look at the scars Age of Life If we leave it on the surface of the Earth, will we spend some time thinking about the things we have in hand.

From the text currently on the screen to the invisible data lines that send signals from the Earth into orbit, all is possible thanks to precious metals that have just woken up from a millennial slumber. Somewhere on Earth, alarm bells at the mines continued to summon long lines of workers, carrying hoes up their shoulders, into the deep mines.

Below are pictures showing how the mining industry changed the face of the Earth; We can call this the fingerprint that humanity left behind for posterity.
