MOTA Activations
Use this form to submit your information on a Mine you Activated.
Location ID *
The Location Identifier in the United States is “US” plus a two letter State ID and a two letter County ID separated by a dash. So for my location in Mesa County, Colorado, the Location ID would be: US-CO-ME The first two letters of the County should be used as the county code unless it is already taken. Then use the next letter in the spelling. So if ME was already used for Mesa county, MS would be the next code.Other countries should use a similar naming convention based on provinces, regions, etc.
Mine ID *
The Mine Identifier should be a 2-8 letter acronym for the name of the mine. It will be combined with the Location Identifier to uniquely identify the mine. So duplicates are ok as long as they do not have the same Location Identifier. In the case of unavoidable duplicates, a incremented 2 digit number should be added to the end of the mine name. Example: “Mores Mine” might be: MM, MORESM, MRSMN, ETC. When combined with the Location ID you get the Unique ID for the mine: US-CO-ME-MORESM Note this is created automatically. You just need to indicate a Location and Mine ID.

This is the name of the mine as documented by a government authority. If no name can be identified, include the local name for the mine or indicate NA for not available.
