(Bingham Canyon, UT) - Officials now say the major landslide at Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon mine has set a record. Scientists tell the “Tribune” last month’s event could very well be the largest manmade slide ever recorded in North America. One earlier estimate put the slide at 165-million-tons - which is roughly 90-million-cubic yards of rock and dirt. Geologists say they haven’t seen an event like the Kennecott slide since the 1959 Montana earthquake.
