The Bu Craa is a large phosphate mine in the Western Sahara, staffed almost entirely by a Moroccan workforce.  Resources are transported to the coast using the world's largest conveyor belt, which is over 100 km long.

The conveyor is 100 kilometres long and runs all the way to the coast from the phosphate mines of Bu Craa. An interesting name that sounds like something from a scifi movie.
