Talk:Crater of Diamonds State Park

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The sentence "(and since Arkansas is the only state where diamonds have been naturally found)" is incorrect, since kimberlite, with diamonds has been found in at least two states (Montana and Wyoming). Additionally there is active diamond prospecting going in Idaho.

It is true that no oother US deposits have been shown to have enough diamond material to even try mining

I propose that the wording be changed to "(and since Arkansas is the only state where enough diamonds have been found to try mining)"

More reading has shown the more updates needed, there is/was a working diamond mine at Kelsey Lake along the Wyoming/Colorado border area Ralph
I'm going to change the above quote to reflect the mine in Wyoming
  • A more encyclopedic phrase could be "not economically viable for mining". Also should the admission to the park be included? -- Riffsyphon1024 00:21, 5 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What is a mg/Mg? What do those numbers mean? " yields from this "black gumbo" surface material often exceeded thirty carats per hundred loads (50 mg/Mg) " Conversion says 50cts is equal to "50 carats = 10 000 milligrams"or 10 grams. Why isn't this 10 grams per 100 cart loads of 1600 pounds per cart load, or 160,000 pounds of earth yielded 10 grams of diamonds, 2591.96 ounces (161 pounds - 72574.8 grams) of raw earth yielded a 1 mg of diamonds. Where does this 50mg come from? This needs a source or should probably be removed as even the numbers seem to be pulled from nowhere. Is this milligram (of diamond) per megagram of earth? That doesn't add up as 10 million grams would equal a single milligram, when the number is 72,000 grams for a milligram (of diamond) or 72 million milligrams per milligram (of diamond).

Hi there.

It would be nice if the value for which diamonds were bought/sold would be displayed next to them.

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30A:2ED6:9470:B4E9:EF04:85F4:3E97 (talk) 16:49, 6 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
