Hydraulic Gold Mining and Strip Mining? Or once 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.
Note the green vegetation on the
lower left of image shows water in the area. A much larger photo can be seen at:

The strip-mining photos of Mars resemble the Barrick Goldstrike Mine (on right) in Nevada,
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 'mine' with an apparent sign (upper right) cut into the terrain
of Lunae Planum on Mars.
'The depression of Juventae Chasma, is located north of Valles Marineris.
Better view of above 'Mine' along with the 'Identification', just left of center near top? ->
This is a more direct view of 'mine' from over the above Juventae
Chasma cut terraces.
<- Note greenish valley behind open 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.

green vegetation in the valley. ->
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. Water here?
Mars Sulphate Deposits with Alphabetic symbols
Close-up at left shows a very clear view of the
huge sign 'identification'.
The Mars Express shows
the 'sulphate' mine with the sign or alphabetic symbols at each end. It appears to be of ancient
Greek/Phoenician script and is the name the ancient Phoenicians printed on their coins: YWH.
the 'Phoenicians/Celts' - a.k.a. 'Yahoos' anciently mining Mars?
Ancient Martian Placer Mine?
Strip Mine? Or simply an eroded Formation?
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars
Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows light-toned, layered rock outcrops found in eastern Candor Chasma, part of
the vast Valles Marineris trough system. Rocks such as these have been known to occur in the 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 debate and discussion within; although they are entirely filled in with those 'corrugated-glass-like',
frozen water tubes. Check out the MOC originals.

Open-Cut Gold Mine at Peak Hill.
Is it possible gold was once mined on Mars?
Was Mars an ancient El Dorado, a Motherlode?
If one inspects the enlarged terrace image above,
very large tubes encircle every cut ledge down
to the very wet bottom of above 'pit mine'.
Was hydraulic, 'placer' mining being used?
Was water being skuttled through tubes across
the planet to gold mines; the refined gold, in ingot form,
then shuttled off to a home planet?
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 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 piled-up and half buried all over the entire place.
This site was successfully located and explored in a remote viewing study conducted by the Farsight Institute
in March 2010 using nine highly trained remote viewers, and methodologies developed by the U.S.
military. These experts claimed there are artificial structures on the site with a 'laboratory' and
possibly humans and aliens, with both men and women wearing uniforms. The original builders and
technology of the site were seen to have been ancient, and advanced.
Placer mining, i.e. hydraulic gold mining was done using high water pressure spray to wash out the gold ore from
rocks and soil in which it was embedded and hidden. Could Gold be being mined, refined, and ingots shuttled
to the home planet of these occupants? Possibly other valuables are being harvested there too? Or, are
these old water tubes just being tested for workability? Gold is the heaviest known element, but virtually
weightless in space. It is also highest priority for use in electronic micro-wave frequency
technologies. Could some of Mars' archaic, old abandoned 'glass tubes' still be in use to dredge the
land, possibly for ores or other elements? Although most of Mars' 'glass tubes' appear frozen,
deteriorated and unusable, they once skuttled across the planet from the poles and other melt places.

Smelter structure here in outline?
While viewing the Moc images in super magnification,
I could actually make out humans walking and sitting around this thrashed ancient site. Their uniform tops
are white with darker color pants. The tops appear bulky as if wearing oxygen tanks underneath?
They wear what appears to be white Russian astronaut caps that might be fitted with headsets and oxygen masks?
The large MOC photo-cut above, was taken on Mars back in 2001.
