I know that we have been looking at these photos as proof of a mining operation on the moon, but isn't it possible that these photos could be of the building of a moon base?
REPORT ON THE CONSTRUCTION AND TESTING OF A BUCKET WHEEL EXCAVATOR

Ontario, Canada, P3A 3V8
The Northern Centre for Advanced Technologies Inc. (NORCAT), in partnership with Electric Vehicle Controllers Ltd. (EVC), is presently engaged in the development and adaptation of existing mining technologies and methodologies for use extra-terrestrially as precursor and enabling technologies for ISRU and for use as ISSE in support of longer term missions.
More specifically, NORCAT, in collaboration with Colorado School of Mines, has developed, constructed, and tested a bucket wheel excavator. The unit is based upon the design developed by CSM’s Mike Duke and Tim Muff.

Spacelift operations at the East and West Coast launch bases provide services, facilities and range safety control for the conduct of United States Department of Defense (DOD)
The Space Test Program (STP) is a part the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, Space and Missile Test and Evaluation Directorate located at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The DoD Space Test Program was created in May 1965 as a multi-user space program whose role is to be the primary provider of spaceflight for the entire Department of Defense space research community (this role was revalidated in a Nov 1995 memo from the Secretary of Defense). The Air Force is the executive agent for this DoD program. The primary objective of STP is to fly the maximum number of DoD space research experiments possible consistent with priority, opportunity and available funding. From the first launch in Jun 1967 to Jun 1997 over 400 experiments have been flown on over 120 missions using dedicated free-flyers, the space shuttle or piggyback payload opportunities.

WHAT west coast launch base???
I keep returning hoping to find clear and undeniable evidence and I am disappointed each time.

I believe they may be talking about Vandenburg. Many of those launches labeled 'classified' have astronauts on board.
Don't know where they are going or how they get back.
From that point I started collecting Lunar Orbiter photos which eventually led to this thread. I wasn’t expecting much interest until Zorgon came on board. Holy Smokes! What a talented and tireless worker.
For me it is very exciting to have uncovered one of the biggest secrets in human history: that mankind has been on the moon and mining it for a very long time.
Remember that these pictures were taken back in 1966 and that strip mine wasn’t created overnight.
For those of you who can’t or are unable to see the excavators, buildings, roads, ramps, arches, vapor, smoke, or anything that would indicate that there is a huge mining operation on Copernicus: I envy you.
