The Cydonian Imperative

Did Ancient "Martians" Dredge for Gold?
by Mac Tonnies


G.T. McCoy, posting on UFO UpDates, relates the following
concerning the possibility that the infamous Martian "tubes"
might be debris from an ancient mining operation:

"Want to see what made those tailings? Look at this
example of a gold dredge still in existence at
Sumpter, Oregon:


[T]he valley that Sumpter sits in has tailings very like the
Klondyke example given [see article and photo above]. The big
deal is, this area was relatively arid and what passes for a
river in Eastern Oregon would be a creek elsewhere. The point is
this thing 'floated' on very little water and had a shallow

It might be worthwhile for someone to look for the remains of
large, derelict equipment, possibly under the sand at the head
of these anomalies."

The fact that the dredging machines described by McCoy were
capable of operating in shallow conditions actually correlates
some of what we know about Mars' conditions in the remote past
(i.e. dwindling surface water). Could a civilization intent on
harvesting material from the Martian surface have used similar

Readers of Zechariah Sitchin will probably be the first to
recognize the emphasis on gold related in the last two
installments. According to Sitchin's theories (described in "The
12th Planet" and "Genesis Revisited," among others), an
extraterrestrial species colonized Mars (and Earth) driven by a
dire need for gold--(although I personally disgree with
Sitchin's supposed engineering uses). But perhaps the notion is
