New England hotspot?
The New England hotspot article says the easternmost mounts of the chain are "northwest of Hudson's Bay". So, would that be the Ekati and Diavik diamond mines? Geo Swan (talk) 07:49, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
- Well, the Ekati kimberlites seem to be quite young (45 to 62 million years old) compared to the New England hotspot volcanics. During the Early Jurassic period 196 million years ago, the New England hotspot existed in the Rankin Inlet area of southern Nunavut along the northwestern coast of Hudson Bay. Further south in Ontario, the New England hotspot track is about 156 million years old and it continously becomes younger as the track enters the Atlantic Ocean. So it seems like the New England hotspot never existed in the Ekati area and thus it did not create the Ekati kimberlites. Black Tusk (talk) 19:47, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Diamond Exploration – Ekati and Diavik Mines
I've added a link to the Google preview of this book chapter -- most of the chapter is available, and all of the illustrations and captions are up at the publisher's site. A nice resource, excellent for expanding the article, or for geologists and student readers. See especially Fig 17-14, a regional map from Krajick's book, Fig 19, a great aerial of the first three pits at Ekati, and Fig 20, a closeup index map.
Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.
