Roman Terrace Mining in the Uinta Mountains


The following topic is going to be a difficult subject, not because it is difficult to write about but because it is difficult to visualize using image examples from Google Earth, the only real way to show the details of this potential Terrace Mining is by aerial recon using a drone. 

There will be the critics who in their own genius will argue that many of these sites are not what we are suggesting and without offering anything of supportive value still insisting that they are from natural causes due to glaciation melt, and I am not going to argue with them, because I ADMIT it is always possible they are natural formations, but I will never admit it is due to glaciations as a result of some past ice age which is an utter fallacy.

Double Terrace in N Fork, appears in the Reinaldo map of  1851 and the Arolla Map of  1877 near the mine of Des Damian

Slide? mine dump? Or both?


There are several mining techniques use ever since the beginning of time many of which I am unfamiliar, what I want to discuss today is what I have come to understand is referred to as strip mining or more specifically, terrace mining.

When we hear about mining in the Uinta Mountains we always envision the Spanish digging tunnels to what seems at times, no end… but what of the many other cultures who have visited this land, whether it be King Hyrum, the people of the Queen of Sheba from India, how about the first Americans of which the Altai Mongolian have derived not to mention almost every Native American tribe on this continent, locals call them Jaredites, how about the Chinese, their descendants, the Hebrew from Jerusalem, the Greek, Romans, Welsh, Portuguese and others… what mining techniques did they use and why? 

Of all that I feel I have unraveled of this continent thought to be true and plausible history and especially in this place we call the Uinta Basin and or Uinta Mountains… is the evidence of previous occupation and the scares left behind as a result of mining and quite possibly since the days of King Hyrum. But why the Uinta Mountains? I have made no bones about my thoughts on this area and why I believe it was and still is a highly desired target of those seeking to control or overthrow this land. The evidence is obvious in that many cultures tried and will try again to overthrow this land but with a focus just like the Spanish, Welsh, French and other in trying to find this place which has been known by names such as Ophir, Havilah, Atlan-tis, Aztlan and Afflon or Affalon, all of which I believe was in the beginning, the very home of our first parents before being expelled. Those of you, who have read the former articles, understand that this is an idea that was not just pulled from my back side, the evidences are many. 

Regardless of who was here in the past the scars left behind tells us that someone other than the Spanish heavily worked the Uinta Mountains, but even with all they have mined which is extensive, it wasn’t a drop in the bucket. In the book of Genesis, it is said that the land of Havilah, is “Full” of gold, and I think the use of this word is appropriate and fitting even today. Yes the Spanish dug many mine tunnels, I have seen many of them, found those which were only known upon the maps of which we were uncertain when receiving them, but all that is behind us now and the truth is known, more proof will soon come, but of all that I have imagined and discovered I never thought I would find the scars of those who came long before the Spanish, and yet it is there, obvious and abundant but I admit… unproven.


Just a  few suspect locations throughout the Uintas,

Notice the lack of sites on the North flank.


The only way I can think to share the image of these terraces is by drone footage and let you go see for your self on Google Earth by rotating your screen in order to get perspective… so… I forget where my drone is... so here is where you want to look to see a small portion of the potential ancient Strip Mines/Terrace mines throughout the Uintas… The first place you want to see, a good example of strip/terrace mining and is easy to get to, is the Current Creek Red Ledges, although it is in an entirely different formation as to what you will find in the Uintas proper… it is the same concept of mining.

 Another site I have alluded to some time ago in a previous article is located due east of Brown Duck inlet at Moon Lake and of course above Moon Lake on the east side at 9,150 feet. It isn’t that hard to see even though a large portion of it has now been reclaimed with new growth, it takes hundred and hundreds of years for these scars to be reclaimed. This scar or ancient mining terrace continues 3 miles to the North slowly increasing in elevation as you go North, then about a mile further up it begins again and runs another 4 ½  miles or so further north.

On the west side of the lake at the North end at an elevation of about 9000 feet again you will find the scars of Terrace mining with spotty locations further North. Are there tunnels also at these locations? In some cases the maps indicate that at some of the sites, a mine tunnel might be present. 

Lets see how your Google Earth skills are. I’m telling you this that you can experience the perspective that is not possible with 2 dimensional photos. The worst part about this is, it must remain as theory until proven, and I think I have a handle on that and hope to be able to prove it in upcoming years.

Ogden Gold Bar Cache


Several Years ago a friend of mine came to me with a map and a story of a more modern Gold Cache story. He told me that he had spent a little time looking for it but after reviewing the map it was clear to me he was with out doubt looking in the wrong place. 

As the story went…. Sometime in the early 1970’s a man from the Ogden area was working at a Gold mine in a nearby state. His job allowed him access to the many Gold Bars that were cast, and temptation was constantly tugging at him. All the while he would work he would think of ways where in he could sneak a bar or two out of the facility in without being detected. Finally he came up with a plan where in he was able to successfully help himself to a bar or two from time to time and after a year or so he had accumulated a nice hoard… it wasn’t long after this the man ended up going to prison for a spell for some unrelated crime, but unknowing to him, he would never leave.

While in prison apparently he contracted tuberculosis (aids) and it became apparent he wasn’t ever going to leave alive. He decided to tell his cell mate about the cache and draw him a map of where he had cached the bars. His cell mate was scheduled to be released soon. Not long after the man passed away his cell mate was set free. he made a few feeble attempts to find the cache with no success. Not long after he returned to prison for some unknown reason but not before sharing the map and the story with his mother. 

His mother wasn’t much for treasure hunting but at least she took to the initiative to contact my friend and ask him for help with it. 

My friend never shared the names of the them involved nor the mother and as it would seem, that information is now lost as my friend passed on not long ago. I really believe this one can be found...

I and a couple of friends have made several trips to the area and found success in finding many of the things described on the map, and nailed down what we think is the cache area but as time went on we slept and had a few beers and other projects took precedent, we have never been back. 

I received the story in 2007 and by the end of 2008 it had been set aside for other projects. There are inconstancies in distances on the map that might need some thought; however I am certain we have the cache area nailed down. This is a project that was almost forgotten. Did the man leave some kind of mark at the cache location? A pile of rocks, maybe a carving on a tree, we don’t know, only one of my friends has been to the actual suspect cache area. It is about a mile and a half hike from where you park to the Cache area. Suspect value 4 Million in unmarked bars.

Evidence of Catastrophic Events

Since the beginning of time here on this globe, there have been several earth shattering moments in which has changed the geography to the point in which in many cases, things just don’t look anything as it did in the beginning. I am not a believer in a 4 billion year old earth, if you are, that’s ok, you have your agency as well.  I am a believer in the contents of the Bible, King James version, as far as it is translated correctly… also other books which have at one time been a part of the Bible and some that have not… I believe in a young earth and its temporal existence being 7000 years with roughly 1000 years yet to go.

Approximately 4700 years ago this planet suffered a global event referred to as the great flood in which a pole shift occurred during said flood. When man learns of what exactly happened of which could cause a global flood, it will amaze them but many still won’t believe… Where did all that water come from, and where did it go? 

It is well known in Law today that the testimony of a single witness is generally sufficient to establish a fact, however I lean to common law of which the two witness rule applies. The following 3 accounts should be sufficient, and if not we have mounds of geological AND Archaeological evidence in addition to several other tribal accounts of former inhabitants who have preserved the accounts in their history handed down in their own legends, that will not be included in this article. 

Another fantastic earth moving moment occurred roughly 2000 years ago, we know it as the Crucifixion or the event as a result of the crucifixion which caused global earth quakes and tremors. The event of which was a pole shift from our previous North pole, which was about 500 miles west off the coast of Alaska, and prior to our present day north. It was described here in the west by the Wasu Indians as follows… 

"Long time, heap long time… Carson Valley, Wasu Valley, Truckee Valley, Long Valley, Pyramid Lake, Lovlock, everywhere all water, plenty fish, plenty duck. Big fish too, now no see him no more, all go away, no come back.


"Wasu Injun, he live big mountains (pointing to the Comstock and Pyramid range). Some time Wasu Indian take `em boat go see Piute, maybe Piute he take `em boat go see Wasu Indian, Yes he good friend, all time."


Pointing to the Sierra to the west of Washoe Valley, the old Indian continued:


"Big mountain all time fire, plenty `boom, `boom, heap smoke, injun heap afraid! Byme bye, one day, mountain heap smoke, heap noise, ground too much shake, injun heap afraid, fall down, plenty cry. He sun every day come up (pointing to the northeast) he go down (pointing to the southwest). One day sun no come up, Injun no savey, mountain heap smoke, ground plenty shake, wind blow, water heap mad. Maybe two, three day sun he no come, injun no eat, no sleep, all time cry, cry, yes, heap afraid. By and by water make plenty noise, go plenty fast like Truckee River: water go down, down, mountain come up, come up, plenty mud, plenty fish die, by and by sun come back over this mountain (pointing to the southeast) he go down over there (pointing to the northwest). Yes, white man savey, injun no savey,


"Maybe two, three week, mud he dry up, Piute, Wasu Injun walk, no more boat. All water he go; maybe little water Pyramid Lake, Honey Lake, Wasu Lake, too much mountain, he come pretty quick. Yes, injun no savey water, big fish no come back. No see him no more."


This event was also described by another as “a terrible storm arose, and a great tempest with lightning and thunder such as had never been seen before, and a quaking of the whole earth… Oceans were heaved beyond their bounds, valleys became mountains and mountains become valleys, the entire face of the land was changed, and followed by 3 days of darkness where in their could be no light… (Book of Mormon 3rd Nephi Chapter 8)


And again this same event was recorded by yet another unknown people by way of Hieroglyphic writing found on an ancient marble tablet in Cottonwood Canyon east of Salt Lake in July of 1916 when miners broke into an ancient tunnel while making a side drift. Now although it is open to interpretation, based on 35 years of the study of Petroglyphs and Pictographs as a writing system, see… I can do studies too… the following is my incomplete translation of the Marble Tablet describing this event and the creation of Lake Bonneville.



One day in the morning, a great storm came from the North, much rain and much unusual lightning high in the clouds, much wind, the earth quaked much, mountains went up and mountains went down, some mountains divided and much water came from them like fountains, the hidden waters came up, water was everywhere around all the mountains. The people of one mountain fled to the top to escape the waters. The people of another mountain fled to the top but were killed when they fell. Others watched from the top of their mountain, their cities were at the base of the mountains The cities were consumed by the rising waters, a great lake was formed and another disappeared, we watched as the winds carried some people away, and the waves of the waters swept others away. The waters rose above the hills and our burial grounds. The turtles are no more. Turtle Island is no more. The people wept. The Sun took a crooked path and did not come up for two or three days and when it came up it came up in a different place and set in a different place. There was much crying by all the people. The waters continued to rise for several moons. Our cities are gone.


However the event in which I really want to talk about occurred approximately 4400 years ago, 300 years after the great flood and about 2400 years prior to the crucifixion event. For 300 years after the Great Flood, our North Pole existed at the very place we now call Iceland, as a result of the waters of the earth gravitating towards our north poles, and being so close to those of the old world, the Mediterranean sea was much deeper with the Black sea connected and the waters covered the Northern end of Africa and Arabian Peninsula with many parts of Southern England.


I imagine waking up every day and looking into the sky and not only seeing the Sun and the moon, but a large planet filling about one third of the North sky, Saturn did not yet have its rings… At this time man occupied an area North of the Black Sea to North of the Caspian Sea where in the people were vigorously building a tower towards the heavens, did you really think they were building this tower towards an empty sky for 300 years to dethrone the Gods? According to the book of Jasher, this tower was being built for near 300 years. To give you some idea as to just how big this tower built in three levels was, it took 3 days to walk the circumference of the second level after the tower fell with the first level sinking into the earth the 3rd level took to fire and the second level remained even unto the days of Jasher. To give you an idea how tall this tower was, it took a full year to deliver a full load of bricks to the top and if a brick fell and broke they would weep over it but it a man died in his labors, they threw him over the edge. These people were actually trying to build this tower to reach the sphere in our north sky which actually shared the same axis with what we now call earth and was considered as part of earth. Today where this great tower which was the diameter of Salt Lake Valley once stood is nothing more than a big hole in the ground filled with water, and occasionally as the city still sinks to this day, seismic activity occurs even though there is no fault lines or fractures or any reason for seismic activity anywhere near by, Sounds pretty incredible doesn’t it?



Today’s North Pole and Equator, Yellow, has existed about 2000 Years.

Iceland North Pole and Equator, Purple, Existed about 300 Years.

Alaska North or BC North, and Equator Red, Existed for approximately 2400 Years.


The oceans of the earth gravitate towards and mound at the magnetic Poles, (NOT the same thing as Gravity) there is no such thing as “Ocean Level.” If the oceans were level then the centrifugal force at the equator would cause a mounding effect of water at this point and is exactly what academia tells us and is some what true…



Partially accurate showing no polar bulge


If what I am saying were not true, academia would have to explain why a tidal change increase and decrease up to 600 miles North and South of the equator is a maximum bulge (Change in tide) at the equator of only about 9 feet, tapering down to about 5 inches just 600 miles north and south of said equator, and then from there gradually increasing traveling North, all the way to Alaska maxing at a whopping 32 feet or more! How is this possible? Unless, the earths oceans gravitate to our North and South Pole due to the same magnetic pull of the earth, in which the moon provides for the tidal changes.


The exact cause of this pole shift is unknown but it was the most catastrophic this planet has seen, and when it happened caused more geologic upsets and upheavals that the world would see, possibly even greater than what is yet to come. It is the event that caused the illusion of an ice age, instantly freezing everything in the area north and south, I wonder where all that minus 270 degree cold air came from or should I say, lack of air?


It would seem that the shift was instant switching from our Iceland location to ground zero about where Prince William Sound is located on the coast of Alaska, notice the strata formation as seen from above…



but before the dust settled, our new north of 2400 years had established itself about 500 to 600 miles of the coast. Keep in mind the environment in Alaska at the time was very much like Northern California/Southern Oregon. Imagine the earth while in its normal rotation having a giant metal javelin shot through it piercing the earth through, changing the angle of rotation but the sudden jolt sending the oceans sea’s to the east and all living animals hurling across the ground at high velocity of which evidence to this day can be seen in Alaska called Frozen Muck, (SEE Chapter 6 in the Book Nephite North) or the following small portion of Frank C Hibben’s work I am going to reproduce below due to the actual academic papers are getting very difficult to find on line.  After reading the following I think you will in part understand why after Frank died in 2002 the academic string pullers began the process of discrediting Franks work, but never uttered a word while he was alive.


Frozen Muck

“In Alaska thick frozen deposits of soil, boulder, plant and animal exist, commonly known as "muck". Prof. Frank C. Hibben of the University of New Mexico described these deposits: "In many places, Alaskan muck is packed with animal bones and debris in trainload lots. Bones of mammoths, mastodons, several kind of bison, horses, wolves, bears and lions tell a story of a faunal population. Within this frozen mass lie the twisted parts of animals and trees intermingled with lenses of ice and layers of peat and mosses. It looks as though in the midst of some cataclysmic catastrophe of ten thousand years ago the whole Alaskan world of living animals and plants was suddenly frozen in mid-motion like a grim charade twisted and torn trees are piled in splintered masses  at least four considerable layers of volcanic ash may be traced in these deposits, although they are extremely warped and distorted"


This suggests that although volcanoes were erupting, other forces were required to dismember these animals - with mighty floods and hurricanes being the most likely.


"Fossil bones are astonishingly abundant in frozen ground of Alaska, but articulated bones are scarce, and complete skeletons, except for rodents that died in their burrows, are almost unknown. The dispersal of the bones is as striking as their abundance and indicates general destruction of soft parts prior to burial."


Meanwhile in Siberia, mammoths were being wiped out in a similar manner. Massive graveyards of their remains have been mined for ivory tusks. It has been estimated that more than half a million tons of mammoth tusks were buried along Siberia's Arctic coastline, which equates to roughly five million mammoths. Several dozen frozen mammoth carcasses have been found with the flesh still intact. They died suddenly. In their stomachs can be found undigested vegetation, including grass, bluebells, wild beans and buttercups, food typically available in the summer. Scientists examining them have concluded that three of the mammoths died of asphyxiation. The cause of death of the others has not been determined.


At the same time as this pole shift and sudden jolt like slamming on the brakes in your car while your passenger tries to steady an open top cake pan full of water… The ocean in the pacific at the equator sent a massive title wave towards the western shores of today’s Chili, Peru and Bolivia, a wave so massive it managed to travel 400 miles inland and washing away all life and nutrients needed to cause new growth and is the reason why today the Atacama Desert exists. You can see similar results in the tops of the Uinta Mountains, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana Mountains as well, where in large effluents of water have striped the grounds of all nutrients needed to regenerate new growth. Now go read what academia has to say as to why the Atacama desert exists… It is amusing, especially understanding that right next to it is one of the oldest Tropical Rain Forests on the planet, the Amazon which in and of itself is evidence along with the Congo basin rain forest  those of Indonesia as well.


It is this same event which the legends told in China of a great flood that swept across their country about 2200 to 2300 BC I wonder if the people know where the North African Ocean went….


Whenever you gaze at the Alaska Range, Wasatch Range Mountains, the Sierra Nevada Range and all the way down to the Andes, even the Koolan Range of Hawaii! Are all as a direct result of this event created in hours if not minutes rather than millions of years as theorized by science? Consider the ring of fire surrounding the Pacific, the worlds most active volcanic ring, the earth still to this day trying to weld itself back together… Regardless, lets hope that the event to come isn’t this catastrophic.




Gee… <scratches head> I wonder what the connection is… and by the way, if you follow the fractures of the earth which science tries to convince is is tectonic plate boundaries… which don’t exist… if you continue following the two southern ends of the ring of fire, they meet at the exact location of our former south pole…


Revelation 16:18

18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19  And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.


Oh Crap…
