Mining Camp

Mars' primary export is precious metals like gold, platinum and uranium. This mining camp is only temporary and will move when the nearby metals have been exhausted. The three domes shown are living quarters, a physical plant and a supply dome. The elevated containers are built as more metal is accumulated.

You can see one person outside checking a sample that a rover just dropped off. The most unusual site here is the large pyramid. It is composed completely of salt. The salt is separated from the rocks and discarded.
