More for The Doe Run CompanyEdit

Hello! I'm an employee of The Doe Run Company and I'm here as a representative of the company, per my last message at this WikiProject. Continuing my work to update the company's Wikipedia article, I have saved an expanded and updated draft here, and posted an edit request on the article's talk page. My goals are to correct factual inaccuracies, source all content, and provide a more thorough overview of the company's operations, among others outlined in more detail in the edit request. Would someone from this page be able to give this a look over? TS at Doe Run (talk)

Kibali Gold Mine in the DRCEdit

I would like to request the article called Durba Mine, be renamed to Kibali Gold Mine, as this is what the minesite is far more commonly known as. Some more details at here at the article's Talk Page. Matilda Maniac (talk) 01:32, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Location of Climax mine in ColoradoEdit

Wikipedia incorrectly lists the location of the climax molybdenum mine as Climax Colorado. Wrong. The village of Climax ceased to exist in any form decades ago. There is no such place as Climax Colorado. The only address for the mine and mill is 11230 CO-91, Leadville, CO 80461.

Thank you for your concern. Climax still exists as an unincorporated region where the mine is located, so technically the article is correct. Turgan Talk 21:42, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

New articles which have already established onesEdit

A bunch of students from Earth Science at The University of Hong Kong donated a few articles and dumped them here. It is like most of the student work here. It is done to get credit points with no inner love for wikipedia.


User:Jupmira104 is the head of the group He already has dumped Geology of Myanmar Qinling orogenic beltEoarchean geology Geology of Sicily Remote sensing (geology) Geology of Hainan Island Hadean zirconLutetium–hafnium datingGravity of MarsPressure-temperature-time pathNorth China Craton Divergent double subduction Dinosaur tooth into wikipedia.

Hi User:Stone, don't be concerned about the student work here. The writings will all be good for Wikipedia to have, whatever the motivations of the writers. This is on of the best Class-Wikipedia collaborations going. Jupmira104 is not the head, instead User:Aagwebb is the instructor involved, and has a list of all the pages involved over the years on the user page. I am assisting online, and will be fixing up grammar etc. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 08:09, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Clifton Hall CollieryEdit

I think this page is overdue for a reassessment. Would a project member care to look at it please? Martin of Sheffield (talk) 00:01, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Origin of phosphate rock?Edit

Hi, I just posted this at the article page, but am reposting here, in hope of finding someone more knowladgeable about these deps than I am (which shouldn't be hard ;-)

I just saw a new-to-me (and uncited) theory for the origin of sub-commercial Phosphate deposits in California's Monterey shale. Those authors assign the source to the Columbia River flood basalts, which are the right age (17-15 my), and go on to say that "most of the world's mineable phosphate deps were deposited during times of major flood-basalt eruptions."

Anyone? Cheers, Pete Tillman (talk) 20:20, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Groom mineEdit

Would like to get some eyes of experts in the field of mining to look at the article Groom Mine before submitting the article to WP:FAC (at present there are 8 articles tagged to belong to this WikiProject considered FA quality). If the FAC is successful, we can elevate that number to 9.--RightCowLeftCoast (Moo) 00:10, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out!Edit

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.
