Once there was a marble quarry in Ny-London, Svalbard. There are the remains of a settlement and a quarry from the early 20th century, constituting the national heritage of Svalbard there.
Ny-Londonis Teravmägedel oli kunagi lootustandev marmorikarjäär. Marmor oli kaunis, kuid ei kannatanud transporti mandri-Euroopasse. Praegu on seal 20. sajandi algusest pärit asula ja karjääri säilmed, mis on arvatud teravmägede kultuuripärandi hulka.

good idea for the theme and interesting machinery
when I see Svalbard I think of the SciFi series, "His Dark Materials"

wonderful depiction of the machinery; the people seem to be milling around without a purpose.

A amazing photograph the colour you have chosen to use makes this superb image detail stand out
