How to Map
Add historic=mine to a node. The name of the mine and the main mineral(s) mined can also be added if known.
Or you can expand with more information to help eventual set up a gazatteer of world mine locations:
name=Green How Hill
description=Lead and previously silver has mined here since Roman times
- Where the sites of individual vertical shafts are known, you can additionally map then with historic=mine_shaft
- Where the sites of individual horizontal adits are known, you can additionally map then with historic=mine_adit
- Where a spoil heap can be clearly seen, for example on Bing imagery, you can outline it with man_made=spoil_heap
- An area of (indistinct) shafts, spoil-heaps etc might be mapped with an area historic=archaeological_site
