Temple Square and learning about the Mormons, we followed the tip of a former colleague of mine who'd moved to Salt Lake City to visit the Kennecott Copper Mine. What a sight! I love seeing real working places like that, and learning about how actual products are made, in this case, how copper is extracted from relatively low-grade ore in one of the largest open pit mines of the world.

It is more than a 3/4 mile deep with much more ore below.
