Pictured below is an example of the strange, often spiral shaped objects found in the eastern Urals. Since 1991 more and more of these objects have been found in the region. Often microscopically small they are made principally of tungsten, molybdenum, and copper. They were discovered during the course of official explorations that had been mounted with a view to exploiting the precious metals in the region. Consequently geological and mineralogical analysis was done by the Central Scientific Research Institute for Geology and Prospecting for Precious and Non Ferrous Metals ( ZNIGRI ) in Moscow. The ZNIGRI put out a report in which the author, Dr Matveyeva states: “The layer which contains the spiral shaped objects is characterised as gravel and detritus deposits … From their orientation these layers can be dated to 100,000 years and correspond to lower regions of the Mikulinsk horizon of the upper Pleistocene.”
In plain language the Pleistocene is the previous geological epoch, which began about 2 million years ago and ended around 10,000 years ago. Contrary to what some commentators believe however, we don't think that these objects are extraterrestrial in origin. Rather we think their origin is very terrestrial, the vestiges of a former hi tech civilisation, the evidence of which will become increasing apparent over the coming years.
More ancient nano-technology? Artifacts recovered from the Urals and estimated to be thousands of years old.
