Mars Photos From ESA, NASA/JPL
Hydraulic Gold Mining, Pit & Strip Mining?
Or Once Farm & Garden Terraces?
The European Space Agency Mars Express obtained image on left, on March 26,
2004 during orbit 243 with a ground resolution of 23.4 metres showing organized terraces.
Note the green vegetation on the lower left of image which shows there is running water in the area.
It also has its own set of terraces that do not align with the hill terraces. and shows a Large ID at
its base. A much larger photo can be seen at:

Strip-mining on Mars resembles the Barrick Goldstrike Mine, at right, in Nevada, USA.
The young child-face geoglyph on a Martian cliff, photo below, could be a mining ID.
This image, left, taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft
shows the depression of Juventae Chasma and terraced strip-mine with a landmark insignia of ownership (upper
right, arrow at left) cut into the terrain of Lunae Planum on Mars. The depression of Juventae Chasma, is
located north of Valles Marineris.
Better view of above open strip-mine
terraces along with the insignia ID landmark, "billboard" just left of center near top, in right photo, which gives the
identity of the miners. The letters are Paleo-Phoenician, and spell WAH, aka, YaHee (Hue), as in
fire/sun rays. This denoted the Sons of the Sun (Dananns,Dawns/Dans/Danes), ancient art images, lower
right - the legendary King Ramas' hated Danais/Danish, wherein he boasted he'd 'obtained/stolen' their sciences. The
archaic Danes/Celts were noted metalurgists and to have had spacecraft wherein they traveled to Caledonia and the
Mediterranean, etc. ->
Another view of the strip-mine and signature from over
Juventae Chasma, below, left.
<- Note greenish valley
surrounding strip-mine in region of Lunae Planum, at approximately 5o South, and 297 o
East. This close-up view of the mountain in Juventae Chasma is thought to be composed of sulphates used
on Earth in beauty and health aids. The letters appear at the
upper left of 'sulphate' mine.
Notice the green vegetation in the valley
in right photo.
To the northeast, there is a mountain composed of bright, layered material. The OMEGA spectrometer
on board Mars Express discovered sulphate on the surface of Mars and confirmed that this mountain is
indeed composed of sulphate deposits. Very green vegetation shows a real water runoff area.
Mars Sulphate Deposits with Dananns' signature shorthand script.
Close-up at left shows a clear view of super huge signature landmark for spacecraft coming in to mine
The Mars Express shows the sulphate
mine with "Danann" signature at each end. This signature is the ancient Phoenician
script and exactly the same insignia "WAH" the ancient Phoenicians printed on their Syrian,
foundry minted, Cretan coins.
Ancient Placer Mining
A pit Mine here. Another sulphate mining operation? Or placer pit mining of gold?
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars
Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows light-toned, eroded circular terraces found in eastern Candor Chasma, part of
the vast Valles Marineris trough system. 'Formations' like these have been known in Valles Marineris
since the 1971-1972 Mariner 9 mission. The Mars science community believes they formed in rock that was exposed
by the faulting of the Candor Chasma trough, or formed in the trough after it was formed, and is a matter of
on-going debates; although each terrace has anciently been filled in with what appears to be the corrugated,
plexi-glass-like water tubes which run from the top and around down to the very bottom. Check out MOC.

Example of an "open-cut-pit" gold mine at Peak Hill above.
No doubt gold was being mined on Mars. Mars
may once have been an ancient El Dorado - a Motherlode. If one inspects the enlarged terraced image above,
large tubes encircle every cut ledge right on down to the very wet bottom of this pit mine. Hydraulic/placer
mining was being used. Water was being skuttled through tubes across the planet to gold mines; the refined
gold in rod form, light weight in space, was shuttled home to Earth.
Two High Pressure Hydraulic Sprays are Caught in the Act! Placer Mining here?   Right ->
This image was taken by a HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter showing
columns of liquid being sprayed out under high pressure toward terrain just beyond. (Target 1a). Also
note larger tubes running around an oval formation towards lower left. (Target 1c). Such rounds with
large now-collapsed coverings, surrounded by similar large, ribbed-tubes and accompanied by hose-like tubes nearby,
can also be seen on the moon. See: Moon 1.
The hydraulic/water spray hoses in photo, both appear to be attached to large oval tanks just below them. (Target 1b).
The area appears to be a total wasteland of old tubes and tanks running from one end of the terrain to the
other, as well as being piled-up, and half buried all over the entire area.
Placer mining, i.e. hydraulic gold mining was no douby done on Mars using high-pressure water spray to flush-out gold ore
from rocks and soil in which it was embedded. Gold was mined, refined and ingots and other mined resources shuttled
to Earth. Gold is the heaviest known element, but virtually weightless in space. It is also high priority
for use in electronic technologies. Could some of Mars' archaic, old abandoned plexi-water-tubes still be in use to
dredge out ores and other elements? Although most of Mars' water-tubes appear frozen, deteriorated and unusable,
some still appear to shuttle water across the planet from the poles and other melt-water places.
The very large original of the above MOC photo: m07_m12/images/M11/M1100099 was removed, See:
Mars Mines 2 (in progress).
While viewing the original of above Moc image in super magnification,
600X, plus, one could make out humans walking and sitting around the trashed ancient site near giant rope nets, while two
high-pressure plexi-tubes spew out water, which can still be seen in smaller photo above, target 1a. Target1b points to the
humans. Their uniform tops are white with dark color pants. The tops appear bulky as if wearing oxygen tanks
underneath? They also wear what appears to be tight, white head caps that may be fitted with headsets and oxygen masks?
The large MOC photo-cut above of these explorations, was taken on Mars, and published in 2001. Possibly taken earlier
in the late 1990s.
Since the ancient miners had advanced technology to travel
to Mars, refine ore and shuttle them to Earth, it seems if Mars was worth terra-forming, they could have done so given their
technological know-how. But like all the ruins on Earth where the water has sunk not only inches, but many hundreds of feet and
miles below the surface, they left it to remain abandoned. Might this have had something to do with wars, along with the
stolen sciences that consisted of much more then just space travel?
