Where

Hibbing, MN 55746

View the biggest operating open pit iron ore mine in the world, more than three miles long, two miles wide and 535 feet deep. This man-made "Grand Canyon of the North" was the first strip mine on the Mesabi Iron Range. The amazing view continues to grow as the Hibbing Taconite Company Mine expands its mining operations. Rotary drills, 33-cubic-yard shovels and 240-ton production trucks can be seen in action at this National Historic Site. Occasionally, you'll be able to witness a mining dynamite blast used to clear bedrock away to get to the iron ore. Volunteer your time to greet tourists, answer questions, sell crafts/souvenirs, and general maintance and cleaning. Opportunity Available: May to September
