Drone view of Røros Mining Town in Norway it´s on the UNESCO´s world Heritage list


While the Scandinavian country of Norway is not typically associated with mining, at one point it did have substantial copper resources.  Production was centered in Roros, a small town in the central part of the country.  It was the site of copper mining as early as the 17th century, and at one point was one of best sources for the red metal.  In this video, contributor Hopenorway gives us an aerial view of this mining town, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site having ceased mining operations in the 1970's.
