That is one of the powers of God where humans are destroying nature but God has a way to re-make the former destruction of nature as a place that can be used again. Sometimes I myself don't run out thinking why there are so many ex-mines that are left just like that and the nature around them looks sad without being taken care of. Luckily, the only former mine excavated lake that can be used as a tourist attraction is Lake Kaolin in the village of Air Bara.
