    Hello, I was amazed with the grandeur of the iron ore reserves of Kursk in Russia, there is true the number of 220-210 billions of tons.? I worked in the Carajás iron ore mines in Brazil and thought that of the ours was the largest of planet, I like of your photos showing the work in mines. VERY GOOD.
