Ross, West Coast

Ross, West Coast

This aerial view of Ross shows the opencast mine that has been worked there since 1988. In the foreground is the area where waste rock is dumped. Ross is a large-scale mine digging alluvial gravels. The town itself is built on the gravel, and no doubt there is gold beneath it.
