I ever heard about this mine mysterious story, that some researcher recorded some screaming of people inside the hole. Anyone can provide some references for this matter? --Uondre (talk) 13:06, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
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.
Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Not Kola superdeep borehole
While I'm sure that nobody in their right mind looking for one or the other by name would stumble across the wrong article. But, if you do an image search for "deepest hole", you get pictures of Mir Mine, and an image search for "Kola superdeep borehole" turns up a similar set of results featuring Mir Mine (with some pictures of Kola). It is because of this apparent confusion about deep holes (and the difference between a borehole and a strip mine (duh!)) that I believe it's important to provide this cross-reference. -- ke4roh (talk) 13:04, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
The second largest excavated hole in the world, after Bingham Canyon Mine?
How is this assertion reasoned? By depth the Chuquicamata copper mine is deeper and by excavated volume the Hambach surface mine the Garzweiler surface mine and some more are much larger. Are there any valid sources? --Elrond (talk) 19:00, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
