A 30-second animation was produced for television for an Alaska conservation group to illustrate the impact of a proposed high-profile open pit mine. The pit and tailings impoundment, covering an area about 5 miles across, were based on technical drawings submitted by the mining company to the state government for permits. Terrain and landcover were based on data in the public domain.
