It's hard to comprehend the scale of mining operations. The haul trucks dwarf normal vehicles, standing nearly 8 meters tall and weighing over 635 tons when loaded. They are driving on constantly changing routes in the surface mine. The haul trucks are using the same routes as other heavy mobile equipment plus 'light vehicles' (what most of us would still classify as huge trucks!).
