Caption: Certain areas of a mine may have deposits spread thinly across a wide area. It could sometime be most economical to remove entire sections of the mine to gain access to the tin-rich lodes, creating vast caverns. A man standing next to the red mound to the left of the picture gives an indication of scale.
