Yakutia Diamond Minds

Russian diamond mine

Russian diamond mines. The places where the most of Russian diamonds are being mined.

Founded in Soviet times located in the place you can get only on a plane but some people live there permanently. Magnificent Northern nature, short Summer of just one month, but those are one of the most fruitful diamond locations in the world.

  1. Cool pictures of taiga, even though tundra & taiga are not really that pretty.

    Too bad so much destruction is necessary for materialism and silly trinkets.

  2. Funny, people are outraged by this hole in the ground.
    What I see there is human greatness.
    Such a big hole to fetch what we want…
    So much ingeneering, so much boldness…

    And also, such a tiny hole in this boring forest.
    So much left for us…

    What some see as destruction, I see as greatness…

  3. First it was big rigs and now big dump trucks.

    It is nice to see that the USA is helping Russia with its automotive needs ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oh, my goodness. Finally I found the blog about Russia in English. Hm. I was about to launch the WP blog EnglishYakutia and had some doubts about the success. Well. Thanks a lot, guys, for showing me a light in the tunnel ๐Ÿ™‚ Will follow your blog for sure.

    • Maybe The tundra is supposed to look like that? I live in British Columbia Canada and it’s all green forest but who knows, I’ve never been to the tundra. What a great site.

    • They are not dead! These are larch forests and pictures are taken in spring. Climate in Yakutia is continental and there are few snow in the winter, nevertheless it is extremly cold.

  5. What an impressive set of pictures!

    Love the diamond mine but i think with one month of summer it would not be my kind of location to live.

    • Hi everyone. I’m a spanish student of architecture and me an some partners are working about Yakutia’s mines, specially in Mirny’s mine, but we’d be very pleasure if someone could help us. There’s my e-mail adress, so contact me if, specially Lheu, would like to help us.

      Un saludo!!
