Hi Latte,

looking at https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/6.323615/-10.756164 the Bing imagery is not very clear but looking both at Bing and Mapbox imagery  I see an area of about 50meters x 50meters maxi. This seems too small to suggest that this is a mine or a quarry.  I would ignore this.

It looks a bit like mine, but I think they're abandoned. Certainly since it's so close to Monrovia, it must have been found pretty early, and is probably completely empty already.

It's certainly a lot smaller than other mines I've found (further inland in S-L f.e.).

I don't have a computer in front of me to check what they really are but IF they are mines then the tag for them is landuse=quarry
