Afghanistan's Mes Aynak (cinematography teaser)

Mes Aynak ("Little Copper Well") sits in an area with a strong Taliban presence, and the site is guarded by a 2,500-man police force. But it's not only the archaeology they're protecting: the site happens to sit right on top of an estimated $100 billion of copper in what is believed to be the world's second largest copper reserve.
