"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck" - we all heard of this so-called "duck test". It suggests that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics. For open minded people, the below "habitual characteristics" could become a sanity test as well.

If we take this "duck test" into consideration, than our planet Earth is nothing but one huge giant quarry. A type of quarry where coal, copper, uranium, nickel, gold and other natural resources were mined long (or not so long) time ago. Striking similarities could make an open minded person to, at least, look into the issue.

Below we can see the pictures of several quarries. These are the result of our civilization mining in various parts of the world.

Quarries: Lebedinsky (RU) / Magnet Mountain (RU) / Cheremshansky (RU) / Escondida (Chile) / Carlin Trend (US) / Kenecott (US)

Mount Sorrel (UK) / Bingham (US) / Kenecott (US) / Mirny (RU) / Yekaterinburg (RU)

Differently looking quarries

The above quarries are gigantic in size. And the equipment used to produce such drastic terrestrial changes is impressive indeed. This equipment is presented below.

Bucket Wheel Excavators:
Their larger models reach boom lengths of 260 feet (80m), weigh 13,000 tons, and move 12,500 m3/h. The largest BWE ever constructed is TAKRAF's Bagger-293, which weighs 14,200 tonnes and is capable of moving 240,000 cubic metres of overburden every day. Excavations of 497,000 cubiic yards (380,000 cubic metres) per day have been recorded.​

Coincidentally there are some artifacts resembling the machines above. These artifacts are located throughout various museums of the world. They primarily represent Mesoamerican culture, and are dated around 1000 BC.

The above are explained as incenses, and pendants.

We also might have some depictions of the stone cutters, pertaining to the same time frame. It's very easy to dismiss these as pure coincidences, of course. But isn't it exactly the type of explanation we get all the time?

"Natural Formations" #1

Now let us take a look at some of the prominent NATURAL objects. Supposedly they exist for tens of thousands of years. Some of those you might even be familiar with. Some are protected wonders of tourism. Below we have places like Grand Canyon, Antarctica, Greenland, Asian Mountains, Utah parks. These are just a few examples. You can easily find more. You might have seen some other ones yourself. Compare these to the quarries above.

And some more "Natural" formations: all over the world

Spoil Tips (artificial)

Once all the minerals, (and what not) are taken out, we end up with Spoil Tips. A spoil tip (also called a spoil bank, boney pile, gob pile, bing, batch, boney dump or pit heap) is a pile built of accumulated spoil – the overburden or other waste rock removed during coal and ore mining. And here is what they look like. Once again, these are not natural formations. This waste is a byproduct of mining. Some are known to burn on the inside. Please google-help yourself.

And some colorful iron, copper type Spoil dumps (artificial).

So-called "Natural Formations" #2
And below you can find various natural formations. In other words they were created by "mother nature". The below places are allover the world: China, Russia, Argentine, Japan, etc. We have Mount Fuji, Vesuvius, Etna, Salinas Lake, Santa Anna and a whole lot of others here. Additionally you can google Shikhan Mountains in Russia.

Peru_1.jpg China_1.jpg Kyrgiz_1.jpg Kyrgiz_2.jpg Kazakhstan_2.jpg Argentina_2.jpg Russia_2.jpg Argentina_1.jpg Russia_3.jpg


GRAND CANYON

It might be a long shot, but judging by where our Uranium is... may be there is a reason the Grand Canyon looks the way it does. And may be the United States are not the first ones to mine it.

Summary: I think this is too much to be just a coincidence. Looks to me like somebody might have done some major mining on our planet, and forgot to tell us about it. Then again, may be they did but it got "lost in translation" through all those burnt books and libraries. And may be that mountain next to you is just a gigantic spoil tip. Go figure now...

very interesting idea, while the part about the quarries is plausible and could certainly be what it looks like, i think the spoil tips are an too forced comparation and there arent too many similrarities

I don't know. Looks pretty similar to me. The only difference is age, and size.

Spoil tips look like a very good way of burying or hiding something. I wonder if they are publicly accessible or are some kind of 'forbidden', on private land, etc.

That. And also this is how all those ridiculously dated (500,000 year old) finds could be explained.

Well, if some spoil tip ridge was dropped on this axe 800 years ago for example. Based on the layers and depth it is inevitable for the dating to be based on this depth.

In other words an item located in a 600 foot deep mine can not be 800 years old. It has to be super old.

There is a good way to test this theory. See if any of the hills shaped like "spoil tips" contain useful minerals. If minerals are conspicuously absent, it would mean that they were already extracted, and that what you are sifting through is the worthless material which was left over.

Lol. I think we have test results in plain site. If there were any useful minersls in those, we would have had mines and other extraction enterprises set up there by now.

very interesting experiment! but yeah i agree with you

but has anyone done a mineral scan at them?

Obviously I do not know. But considering that they hire divers to extricate samples from the bottom of the Arctic Ocean, I think they would be digging if there was something in there. These are just my thoughts.

i myself wanna see something done there to see if there is anything valuable

Glumlit's theory of the Appalachians being a slag heap may fit that.
The mountains were full of anthracite.

Coal as a mining waste byproduct seems more reasonable than million year old decayed vegetation.
Anthracite is 92-98% carbon. I dont think living objects have that high a percentage.

These Siberian slag heaps in the middle of nowhere may also tie into why Siberia has no old trees.
