This is the first part of a new four-part series on the consistent finding of mining and mineral occurrences directly on the Earth’s alignments and leylines.
I will summarize my findings and interpretations of this material at the end of the fourth part of this series.
I have to thank Charles of the Mined Earth YouTube channel for connecting with me directly, and bringing information on his interests to my attention because there are some interesting synergies between the work he and I are doing independently of each other.
While I already knew I was finding mines along the alignments I have been tracking, I was prompted by this new connection to focus on mining and mineral occurrences with respect to the world alignments that I uncovered in 2016 after I found the North American Star Tetrahedron by connecting the dots of cities in North America that I noticed lining up in lines, then extending all of the lines coming off of it around the world in linear and circular fashion.
This finding of what I am calling the North American Star Tetrahedron and the alignments I found resulting from this discovery form the basis for all of my research and work.
I have chosen Cape Farewell at the southern tip of Greenland as my starting point.
I initially found Cape Farewell when tracking alignments, and it sits on an alignment that globally connects with two different sides of the North American Star Tetrahedron, and this series will cover my findings going in both directions from Cape Farewell.
Cape Farewell is the southernmost point of Greenland, located on the southern shore of Egger Island, part of what is called the Cape Farewell archipelago.
Greenland is an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark.
When I searched for Cape Farewell mines, the Nalunaq Gold mine at Nanortalik showed up, approximately 60-miles, or 97-kilometers from Cape Farewell.
Nanortalik is an Inuit community…
…part of a group of culturally-similar indigenous people inhabiting the Arctic regions of Greenland, Canada, and Alaska – more commonly known as eskimos.
As we travel through their northern lands on this alignment, keep in mind the type of imagery we are taught to associate with eskimos, like igloos…
…and eating muktuk, which is whale blubber.
The Nalunaq Goldmine is located in the nearby Kirkespirdalen, or Church Steeple Valley.
Greenland’s first gold mine, it opened in 2004, and was the first mine developed there in over 30-years.
A narrow-vein, high-grade gold deposit, the Crew Gold Exploration company was the first to mine it for approximately 4-years, producing 308,000 ounces of gold.
This was Greenland’s gift to Queen Margrethe’s Regent Anniversary in 2012, a bouquet of 18 gold flowers in natural-size that were made from Nanulaq gold.
Denmark’s National Bank issued three thematic coins with motifs from the polar regions on the occasion of the 2007 – 2009 International Polar Year that were made from Nanulaq gold.
Gold is a chemical element with the symbol “Au”and atomic number 79 or the number of protons found in the nucleus of every atom of that element…
…in the Periodic Table of Elements, a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements organized in order of increasing atomic number.
There is a recurring pattern called the “periodic law” in their properties, in which elements in the same column (group) have similar properties.
Gold as a chemical element is malleable and ductile – which measures a material’s ability to undergo significant permanent deformation before rupture or breakage; one of the least reactive chemical elements; and is solid under experimental standard conditions.
Gold is also a precious metal, a rare, what we are told naturally-occurring, metallic chemical element of high economic value.
In addition to having been used for coinage, jewelry, and other arts throughout history…
…it has also been used as a neutron reflector in nuclear weapons.
The next place on this alignment is Saglek Bay…
…located in the Torngat Mountains in northern Labrador.
Labrador Inuit have historically occupied most of the Atlantic coast of northern Labrador, and are said to be descendants of the pre-historic Thule people.
Here are some interesting points to ponder on who the Thule people might have actually been, since so much truth is missing from the written historical narrative.
Ultima Thule is the northernmost region of the habitable world as thought of by ancient geographers.
Legendary Hyperborea, a lost ancient land and fabulous world of eternal spring, was said located in the Far North.
Its people were said to be giants, with long and blessed lives untouched by war, hard work, old age and disease.
The Nazi Germans were obsessed with Thule.
The Thule Society was a German Occult Secret Society founded initially as a study group in Munich after World War I. It was the organization that sponsored the German Workers Party, which became the Nazi Party under Hitler. The Nazis believed there was a connection to the origins of the Aryan race with Hyperborea.
Geological studies done on the Saglek block, which is the northern part of the Nain Province of Labrador, confirm different kinds of gneiss, a high-grade metamorphic rock in which mineral grains recrystallized under intense heat and pressure.
Although gneiss is said to not be defined by its composition, most specimens have bands of feldspar, a silicate mineral which has characteristics that includes silicon and oxygen atoms, and of which labradorite is considered a phenomenal feldspar mineral, like this specimen found in Labrador’s Nain Province…
…and this is what labradorite looks like all polished up.
Silicon is a chemical element with the symbol “Si” and atomic number 14.
Silicon is a hard, brittle solid with a blue-gray metallic luster.
It is also a semiconductor, a material that has electrical conductivity intermediate to that of a conductor and an insulator.
Semiconductors are essential components of most electric circuits.
A semiconductor can conduct electricity, and its conductance can vary depending upon the current or voltage applied to a control electrode, whose voltage with respect to the voltage of the cathode – the electrode from which a conventional current leaves a polarized electrical device – determines the electron flow to the anode, or the positively charged electrode by which the electrons leave a device.
Oxygen is a chemical element with the symbol “O” and atomic number 8.
It is a colorless, odorless reactive gas, and as a member of the chalcogen group on the periodic table, a highly reactive nonmetal, and an oxidizing agent that readily forms oxides with most elements as well as with other compounds.
Gneiss also typically contains bands of quartz.
Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one-part silicon and two-parts oxygen, and is the most abundant mineral found on the Earth’s surface. It is the dominant mineral of mountaintops, and the primary constituent of beach, river, and desert sand.
Quartz is highly resistant to mechanical and chemical weathering; chemically inert in contact with most substances; and has electrical properties and heat resistance that make it valuable in electronic products.
Quartz crystals, of which there are many varieties, have the ability to vibrate at precise frequencies, and can be used to make extremely accurate time-keeping instruments…
…and equipment that can transmit radio and television signals with precise and stable frequencies.
In September of 1993, prospectors exploring northern Labrador for diamonds discovered a nickel deposit at Voisey Bay, which is actively mined for nickel, copper, and cobalt.
Nickel is a chemical element, with the symbol “Ni” and an atomic number of 28.
It is a silvery-white, lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge.
Mostly an alloy metal, its chief uses are in nickel steels and nickel cast irons, which typically increases the tensile strength, toughness, and elastic limit.
Copper is a chemical element with the symbol “Cu” and atomic number 29.
It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity.
So copper is used as a conductor of heat and electricity…
…as a building material…
…and a constituent of various metal alloys, like sterling silver.
Cobalt is a chemical element with the symbol “Co” and the atomic number 27.
It is found in the Earth’s crust in chemically-combined form, and the free element cobalt is produced by the smelting process, and is a silver-gray metal…
…and is typically a by-product of nickel and copper mining.
Cobalt is primarily used in lithium-ion batteries…
…and in the manufacture of magnetic, wear-resistant, and high-strength alloys.
Cobalt-60 is a commercially important radioisotope, used as a radioactive tracer, and for the production of high-energy gamma rays.
The next place on this alignment is Kuujjuaq, in the Nunavik region of Quebec, Canada.
Nunavik is the homeland of the Inuit in Quebec.
It is a former Hudson’s Bay company outpost, at the mouth of the Koksoak River of Ungava Bay, and the largest northern village in Nunavik.
We are told that on May 2nd, 1670, the Hudson’s Bay Company was granted a permanent charter by King Charles II of England. It conferred two things on a group of French explorers: 1) A trading monopoly with London merchants over the lucrative North American fur trade; and 2) Gave them effective control over the vast region surrounding the Hudson Bay in Canada.
Hudson’s Bay Company is still in operation today as a Canadian retail business group operating department stores in several countries, and is the oldest corporation in the world.
A corporation is a company or group of people authorized to act as a single entity (legally a person) and recognized as such in law.
The language of the Inuit is called Inuktitut, the written form of which is a pictographic script.
Egyptian hieroglyphs are also an example of a pictographic script.
The Cape Smith nickel belt of the region hosts high-grade, polymetallic nickel deposits, including two operating mines.
The Nunavik Nickel Mine produces nickel and copper…
…and Glencore’s Raglan nickel mining operations, considered one of the richest base-metal mines in the world, producing 1.1 million tonnes of ore annually from three underground mines and two open pit operations.
In addition to nickel and copper, various mining companies are doing exploratory work for gold and platinum in the region around Kuujjuaq.
In what has been named the Ashram Deposit, located 80-miles, or 128-kilometers, south of Kuujjuak, has been explored and found to have the Rare Earth Elements primarily of monazite, bastnaesite, and xenotime.
Rare Earth Elements are a set of 17 metallic elements, including 15 lanthanides, plus scandium and yttrium, and are an essential part of many high-tech devices.
All Rare Earth Elements are radioactive to some degree, with radioactive being defined as “emitting or relating to the emission of ionizing radiation or particles.
It wasn’t listed as being at the Ashram Deposit, but the name of one of the Rare Earth Elements is “Thulium.”
The etymology of the name of “Thulium” is listed as “named after the mythological northern land of Thule.”
Next on this alignment we come to the Belcher Islands, located in the southeast part of Hudson Bay, and part of the Territory of Nunavut, both of which are predominantly inhabited by Inuit people.
Here is a satellite view of the abstract-art-looking Belcher Islands.
The Belcher Islands were named after Royal Navy Admiral Sir Edward Belcher, a hydrographer and explorer who led the last and largest admiralty expedition of 5 ships to the Arctic some time around the year of 1852, with the stated purpose of rescuing missing British naval officers who were in the Arctic looking for the Northwest Passage.
Rather infamously, he ended up having to abandon four of the five ships in the ice in May of 1854.
Here is an interesting aside. One of Belcher’s ships, the HMS Resolute, broke free of the ice and was ultimately picked up by an American whaling ship, and was returned by the American government to Great Britain.
We are told that many years later, when the HMS Resolute was broken-up, its timbers used to make a desk for the American president as a thank you from Great Britain.
What is known as the Resolute Desk is still in use by the President of the United States in the Oval Office.
Now back to the Belcher Islands.
Large deposits of iron ore underly the Belcher Islands.
In 2011, Canadian Orebodies, Inc, conducted an exploratory drill program in its Haig Inlet project in the Belcher islands, an iron ore property the company acquired in the same year.
As a result of its test-drilling, the company estimated there could be up to 230 million tonnes of high-grade iron ore, with samples showing more than 35% iron content.
Iron is a chemical element with the symbol “Fe” and the atomic number 26.
It is a metal, and by mass, the most common element on Earth, forming much of the inner and outer core, and is the fourth most common element in the Earth’s crust.
Iron ores are among the most abundant in the Earth’s crust, although extracting usable metal from them requires kilns or furnaces capable of reaching 2700-degrees Fahreinheit, or 1500-degrees Celsius, or higher.
Iron is the most widely used of all metals, accounting for over 90% of worldwide metal production. It is the material of choice to withstand stress or transmit forces, such as the construction of machinery and machine tools, rails, automobiles, ship hulls, concrete reinforcing bars, and the load-carrying framework of buildings.
It is most commonly combined with alloying elements to make steel.
The Ancients definitely knew something about working with iron.
This is Iron Pillar of Delhi in India.
It is famous for the rust-resistant composition of metals used in its construction, and said to have been made 1,600 years ago.
Next on this alignment we come James Bay, on the southern end of the Hudson Bay.
There are different kinds of mining going on in this region.
For one, the James Bay region has numerous lithium mines.
Lithium is a chemical element with the symbol “Li” and the atomic number of 3.
It is the lightest metal, and the lightest solid element.
Lithium is seen floating in mineral oil in this picture, in which it must be stored because it is highly reactive and flammable.
Lithium has important uses in nuclear physics.
The transmutation of lithium atoms to helium in 1932 was the first fully manmade nuclear reaction in our historical narrative, and lithium deuteride serves as a fusion fuel in staged thermonuclear weapons.
As well, lithium and its compounds have several industrial uses, including things like heat-resistant glass and ceramics; lithium grease lubricants; flux additives for iron, steel, and aluminum production; lithium batteries; lithium-ion batteries; and lithium salts have been used as a mood-stabilizing drug in the treatment of bipolar disorder.
The James Bay region also has gold mining projects in Quebec…
…as well as a diamond mining concern on the other side of James Bay in Ontario.
It is owned by DeBeers Canada, and is the first Canadian diamond mine located in Ontario, and the second diamond mine of DeBeers located in Canada.
Diamonds are a solid form of the element carbon, with its atoms arranged in a crystal structure called diamond cubic.
This is an example of a diamond from the Victor mine.
Carbon is a nonmetallic chemical element with the symbol “C” and an atomic number of 6.
Diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any natural material, properties that are used in major industrial applications such as tools used in cutting and polishing…
…as well as the large-market trade in gem-grade diamonds.
Next on the alignment we come to Red Lake in Ontario, a municipality with town status in Ontario.
Red Lake just happens to be the location of one of the largest gold mines in Canada and the world with its Red Lake mine, which has estimated reserves of 3.23 million ounces of gold…
…and the Red Lake gold district has some of the richest deposits of gold in the world and has produced 30 million ounces of gold from high-grade zones.
Next we come to Kenora, Ontario, a small city situated on the Lake of the Woods, close to the provincial border with Manitoba.
Kenora is located in the heart of the mineral rich Canadian shield, and there are mines in close proximity to Kenora, including mining for lithium…
…and the Kenora Gold Project, which represents four separate properties made up of mining claim blocks.
I found an historical feldspar mine on the Angle Inlet of the Northwest Angle of the Lake of the Woods.
The Northwest Angle looks like it should be in Canada, but it is actually part of Minnesota as a result of American treaties negotiated with Great Britain regarding the northern border.
Feldspar is a group of minerals used in things like glass-making; ceramics; a filler and extender in paint, plastics, and rubber.
The next place we come to is Minot, the fourth-largest city in North Dakota and a trading hub for a large portion of northern North Dakota, southwestern Manitoba, and southeastern Saskatchewan.
It is located approximately 43-miles, or 69-kilometers from Rugby, North Dakota, which until 2017 was considered the geographic center of North America.
In 2017, the geographic center of North America was officially moved to Center, North Dakota.
A quick look at the written history of Minot indicates that it was founded in 1886 during the construction of James J. Hill’s Great Northern Railway.
James J. Hill was said to be a Canadian-American railroad executive who came from an impoverished childhood…
…to eventually become the founder and driving force of the Great Northern Railway Company.
Minot is also known as the “Magic City” for what was called its remarkable growth over a short period of time.
In the United States, North Dakota is one of the top-ten coal-producing states, mining approximately 30 million tons every year since 1988.
Coal is described as a combustible black, or brownish-black, sedimentary rock composed of mostly carbon, but also with other elements like hydrogen, sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen.
Hydrogen is a chemical element with the symbol “H” and the atomic number of 1.
It is the lightest substance in the periodic table, and the most abundant chemical substance in the Universe.
Nitrogen is the chemical element with the symbol “N” and the atomic number of 7.
Nitrogen occurs in all living organisms, and is a constituent element of amino acids, and therefore of proteins and the nucleic acids of DNA and RNA, as well as being found in the chemical structure of almost all neurotransmitters.
Sulphur is a chemical element with the symbol of “S” and the atomic number of 16.
Also known as brimstone, it is abundant and non-metallic, with a bright yellow color.
Sulphur is the tenth-most common element in the Universe by mass, and the fifth-most common on Earth, and is an essential element for all life as one of the core chemical elements needed for biochemical functioning.
Industrial applications of sulphur include things like matches; insecticides and fungicides; fireworks; gunpowder; and anti-bacterial ingredients in soap, among other things.
We come to Miles City next on the alignment, in the State of Montana.
Miles City was incorporated in 1887.
With livestock speculation bringing thousands of cattle from Texas to Montana in the 1880s, we are told Miles City quickly became a hub for the railroad’s transportation of cattle fattened on Montana range grass to their final destination in Chicago stockyards.
While there are quite a few mining locations in Montana…
…in Miles City specifically there was historically the Miles City Mine for gold and Platinum-group-elements…
…and mining for silver at the Yellowstone Hill Pit and Plant.
Platinum Group elements are 6 noble, precious metallic elements clustered together in the periodic table.
They have similar physical and chemical properties, and tend to occur together in the same mineral deposits.
They are highly resistant to wear and tarnish, making platinum metals well-suited for fine jewelry.
Platinum metals are also used in things like the manufacture of catalytic converters for cars and in the making of dental and medical instruments.
Silver is a chemical element with the symbol “Ag” and atomic number of 47.
It is a soft, white, and lustrous metal, exhibiting the highest electrical conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal.
Silver has long been valued as a precious metal, and used in many bullion coins.
Silver is one of the seven metals of antiquity, along with gold, copper, tin, lead, iron, and mercury.
Other than currency, silver is used in things like solar panels, water filtration; jewelry; high value silverware; electrical contacts and conductors; and many other uses.
Next, we come to Billings, the largest city in Montana.
Like Minot, Billings was nicknamed the “Magic City,” also for its rapid growth in a short period of time after having been founded as a railroad town in 1882.
We are told the city of Billings went from three buildings to over 2,000 within months of its founding!
Billings was named after the Northern Pacific Railway president Frederick H. Billings, and we are told the railroad formed the city as a western railhead for its further westward expansion.
I found the Stillwater Igneous complex in southcentral Montana in the general region of Billings, on the north flank of the Beartooth Mountain Range.
The complex has extensive reserves of Chromium ore, which it was historically mined for.
Chromium is a chemical element with the symbol “Cr” and atomic number of 24.
It is a steely-grey, lustrous, hard and brittle metal.
It is the main additive in stainless steel.
Palladium is currently mined at the Stillwater Igneous Complex.
Palladium is a chemical element with the symbol “Pd” and atomic number of 46.
One of the Platinum Group Elements I mentioned previously, Palladium has the lowest melting point, and is the least dense, of them.
Ore deposits of Palladium are rare, and the Stillwater Igneous Complex is one of a handful of extensive deposits that have been found in the world.
More than half the supply of palladium, as well as platinum, is used in catalytic converters, which convert as much as 90% of harmful gases in automobile exhaust into less noxious substances.
The next place I am going to look at on this alignment is Pocatello, the fifth-largest city in Idaho.
It is the home of Idaho State University, where we find these ancient Greco-Roman-looking columns on the campus on top of Red Hill…
…overlooking the “I” on Red Hill which seems to get more attention than the columns do…
…and Pocatello is the home of one of the manufacturing facilities of ON Semiconductor, a Fortune 500 semiconductors suppliers company.
In a nutshell, the Pocatello area has approximately 547 claims, and 29 mines, which include mines for gold, silver, copper, lead, silica, and phosphorus.
Phosphorus is a chemical element with the symbol “P” and atomic number of 15.
Elemental phosphorus exists in two major forms: white phosphorus…
…which is used in smoke, tracer, illumination and incendiary munitions…
…and red phosphorus…
…which is known to be an effective flame retardant.
The next place on the alignment is Elko, and, as the largest city in over 130-miles, or 210-kilometers, in all directions, it is called the “Heart of Northeast Nevada.”
Elko’s economy is based largely on gold mining, and is considered the capital of Nevada’s gold belt.
Here is an interesting aside.
Metropolis is called a “ghost town” in Elko County that was planned by the Pacific Reclamation Company out of New York, starting in 1909, to be the center of a huge farming district, but ended up being pretty much abandoned between 1920 and the 1940s, after water distribution issues were said to cause the farming community to fail.
This is a picture of the Lincoln School of Metropolis before it was demolished after the creation of a new dam in 1911…
…and here is what remains today of what is called the Lincoln School in what was Metropolis.
Next on the alignment we come to Reno in Nevada, known primarily for its casino and tourism industry.
It is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in a high-desert river valley that is called “Truckee Meadows,” a new major technology hub in the United States due to large-scale investments from Amazon, Tesla, Panasonic, Microsoft, Apple, and Google.
Besides Reno being centrally located between the goldfields of northern Nevada, and California’s Motherlode Country, one of the world’s richest Lithium deposits has been identifed in this part of the world, in the Clayton Valley.
It is the largest known lithium deposit in the United States, where it is found in high-grade, highly-concentrated form.
There is lithium mining here via brines…
Lithium is a key component in the manufacturing of batteries for electric cars.
From Reno, we cross the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
It is here we find California’s mother-lode country, an historic region in northern part California, on the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas.
It is about 150-miles, or 240-kilometers, long, from the vicinity of Mariposa, through Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, El Dorado, Placer, and Nevada Counties.
It was famed for mineral deposits and gold mines said to have attracted waves of immigrants starting in 1849, known to history as 49ers.
We are told that California’s gold rush was sparked by James Marshall’s discovery in 1848 of placer gold at Sutter’s Mill near Coloma.
We are also told San Francisco, which is also on this alignment, grew from a small settlement of about 200 residents to a boom town of about 36,000 by 1852, the year this map was said to have been made…
…and the state’s constitution written in 1849.
In the next post, we will next be heading across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to the Big Island of Hawaii.
