The planet Mars in Nicosia (copper mine)

Picture Element

The Mediterranean island of Cyprus is synonymous with copper.  Literally.  The Greek name for the island is "Kupros".   Copper mining on the island dates to thousands of years BC.  With its best mineral resources having been extracted, mining is no longer a significant part of the economy of Cyprus.  That being said, the heritage is still visible.  In this video, contributor Soteris used a drone to film a copper mine "lake" (distinguishable by its colorful appearance) near the Cypriot capital city Nicosia.

Amiantos Mine & Diamond Hidden Lake, Troodos, Cyprus

Iain Jordan

While the Mediterranean island of Cyprus is closely associated with copper mining, the red metal is not the only mineral to be found on Cyprus.  Another is asbestos, whose fibers were used extensively for insulation before it was discovered that they are highly carcinogenic.  In this video, contributor Iaian Jordan used a drone to film the Amiantos asbestos mine near the center of the country.  Like all asbestos mines, it's been closed, leaving a substantial legacy of cleanup costs.
