(Solomon)[edit]

I am skeptical of the claim that this river is the site of King Solomons mines. What is the evidence for this?

Stoker photo credit[edit]

What its source says is that NASA chose to credit Stoker, but it gives no indication that its use elsewhere requires a credit. We've every reason to believe that she (he?) is non-notable, and no reason to credit her nor reason for mentioning her role, in a geo article, unless there is a discussion that she is notable in the field of Portuguese geography to an extent that mention of her enhances the article's coverage of the place.
I'm removing the presumed knee-jerk elevation of abstract gratitude into a legal responsibility, reading .

subterranean mars?[edit]

isnt that a bit oxymoronic? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.25.138.170 (talk) 22:05, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Hiberus[edit]

Latin name for Rio Tinto! from JSTOR: There is no clear evidence whether the Rio Tinto continued to be called Iber/Hiberus. Please click Google, Rio Tinto , Iber, Hiberus. (I read about that from a Turkish book before.) Böri (talk) 09:15, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Acid Mine Drainage[edit]

Reading this, I was simply astounded at the Spanish government's decision to not clean up for this. I mean, in earlier times, sure, but in modern days with modern cleanup methods and a modern mining company operating the mine? The water treatment plant costs money to operate, but realistically, it isn't very hard to do. It is what just about any other mine in the world has to do just as a matter of business.

coordinates[edit]

The coordinates given send me to the centre of the largest open pit mine. It's not clear that this is the source of the Rio Tinto river. I think the coordinates of some interesting point on the river itself should be used for the coordinates. Maybe here: 37.6398,-6.534237
