There are iron oxide copper gold ore deposits; predominantly iron ore but also up to 5 % copper and 3 grams gold per tonne of ore.
Picture taken on 20120514, 213202 GMT; 180-mm lens. The mine is here: -15.203362,-75.114899; the „lake“ near the coast is a tailings pond (relave minero).
Has open pit iron mining?
