Alaska, Zimbabwe, Africa

Though copper seems to have been the reason the Alaska Mine got started in Zimbabwe, the sign seems to indicate dolomite (limestone) is what has been most recently mined there. I am told a miner from Alaska started the mine, hence the name. In any case, there is a village next to the mine itself, presumably called Alaska Mine and a town a few miles away where the copper ore was processed called Alaska. As I happen to live in Anchorage, Alaska (USA, not Zimbabwe), I couldn't not take some pictures of this place. Between Alaska and Alaska Mine, Mariachitubu Forgiveness and Reconciliation Centre is under construction. Mariachitubu is Shona for Mary's Fountain.
