"Bean-shaped Cement Boulder" --- almost on the hilltop
« on: November 18, 2018, 10:55:32 PM »
Hello everyone!
We found this cement boulder.
It appears to be in a bean-shape or a letter "C".

My rough estimate is its around 3 feet x 4 feet as seen in this picture.
The color is as it is, almost white.
This boulder is difficult to break.
You can see sample fragments in the pictures I attached.

What do you guys think this is?
The area is almost on the hilltop with a tree in the center of this hilltop.

Any opinions will be appreciated.

Did you use a metal detector on that? If no signal then maybe it's just a natural stone boulder.

Hi the7th, Like Admin mentioned to use a metal detector on and around the area if you can use one. Also, it looks man made to me, because of the stones mixed evenly in the cement, and that boulder stands out from the surrounding dirt. Testing with hydrochloric acid will further help determine if man made if it bubbles a lot. Try to expose all the boulder surface as well. I am curious what made you dig that area. Im learning from other TH so any details is helpful. Due keep us posted. Thanks.

Thanks for the input @Symbols2018 - shift

This is actually my final hura.
Much has been used on this project.

When our gadget-detector guy did our site he was together with a medium. Both agreed on a particular spot on where to dig. But our head abantero observed something during the session. The spot where the detector was showing strong signal, it was above this boulder. But both the gadget and medium instructed at a slightly different location to dig. Trusting his gut our abantero dug solo on that spot where the signal on the gadget was really strong. Two days and we got this.

I'm trusting my head abantero on his gut.

This boulder by the way is supported by another softer cement object.
I mentioned this area is a hill and given the right circumstances this boulder can roll down the hill.

If the detector guy and the medium agreed on a different spot, I think there's something wrong with it, Is it? Why would they point to another location when the detector beeps on that particular spot? And by the way, how deep was that bean-shaped cement found?

Looks like a shoe footprint. This sign is tricky because sometimes it indicates you need to travel. A very accurate dowser  would be of help far better than any metal detector. I have yet to see an accurate medium aside from Olaf Johsson so don't rely on them. A drilling machine of be of great help. My simple opinion.

Mineralized rock? Detectors are sometimes lured by JIA engineer planted mineralisation. Get a big chip of the rock and use it in ypur detector ground balance. Touching the coil will give you an accurate ground balance. If you GB the detector then try detecting that rock again, if no detection its nothing but a sign.
