cave depth[edit]

Hi. The depth reference likely refers to the whole cave, connecting through to the bottom exit, not only the hole and original cave. The info is also found that way in the reference - please do not change referenced material unless you have a conflicting reference. Cheers. Ingolfson 01:13, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Ah; I see the problem now. Please note that "HH" and "Harwood's Hole" are not the same cave (I've been in both). I have recorrected the Harwood's data and removed the reference to it formerly being deepest in NZ, as that distinction belongs to HH, not Harwood's Hole. Ian mckenzie 00:36, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

...and I stand corrected on Harwood having previously held the depth record, and have restored that bit, but not the second website reference as that ref mentions HH but not Harwood Hole. See http://caves.org.nz/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/NZSS/DeepestCaves for a ref that includes both HH and Harwood Hole in their proper places. Ian mckenzie 00:46, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

not the deepest sinkhole in Southern Hemisphere[edit]

There are much deeper sinkholes in Southern Hemisphere: Minyé sinkhole in Papua New Guinea 510 m (and many more giant sinkholes in PNG), Lomes Longmot in Indonesia (330 m), Lago Azul in Brazil (>274 m). http://www.wondermondo.com/Best/World/Sinkholes.htm Daarznieks (talk) 10:52, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Yep; you ought to have corrected the article and removed the reference. I'll do that now. Some Wikipedians think that internet references don't need verifying; they do. Ian mckenzie (talk) 22:17, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
