The Mirny Mine is the deepest diamond mine in the world. It is situated close to the Mirnyj city, not far away from the polar circle. Extraction in this diamond mine represents a considerable part of the raw diamond production in Russia . On a world scale, the share of Russia on the world diamond extraction is around 20%.

About the Mirnyj Diamond Mine

From a tourist´s point of view, the Mirny Mine is an interesting touristic destination, which is also rather frequently visited. The mine, more than 600 metres deep and more than 1200 m wide, is on the one hand a typical example of a totally devastated landscape due to the mining. On the other hand it is an extensive complex that will enchant you by its vastness. Seeing the biggest lorries in the world is certainly captivating, too. Don´t forget to bring warm clothes for your visit because the temperature is not only low but it also fluctuates depending on the altitude above the sea level. The pit causes enormous and nonstandard air circulation, which has already caused several helicopter crashes. That is why a no-flight zone was proclaimed above the mine. Another interesting thing is that while almost all mines in the world are situated far away from civilisation, the Mirny Mine is located only a few hundred metres away from the Mirnyj city.
