Thanks for the replies, everyone! I find it interesting to read some of the ideas as to what it might have been, if not my own random paranoia for a
brief period. I really have no persuasive idea as to what it might have been myself as I tend to be rather skeptical of paranormal phenomenon.
I'll try and address some of the question that have been fielded to me regarding more information about this location...
I have not talked to the contractors, or likely ever will as I didn't think it important enough to talk to them about it at the time (a grown man
asking gruff labourers "if it feels spooky here" might have also been just as uncomfortable a situation, hehe) and I likely may not make another
delivery to there any time soon. As such I have no idea if an altercation or nasty accident recently took place there, though my inclination would be
There were no utilities in the area that I could see, except perhaps being part of a weeping tile system for a nearby septic tank. It's possible
there may have been a magnetic anomaly in the area, as I live in an extensively-mined area of the Canadian Shield that's rich in precious minerals
and metals. My city is essentially a mining settlement founded over 100 years ago, and continues to field productive mines today.
The geographical area seemed to be in common elevation at observation; there aren't really any drastic changes in topography for quite a distance in
either direction, approximately 500 meters above sea level if I recall correctly. The area I was in seemed to be somewhat marshy, yet still dense
forest that was only recently cleared. The natural soil would have been very wet which is why the ground level appeared to have been raised a few
meters by sand where this house was being constructed.
Historically there was perhaps a few Cree native tribes living in the area before it was settled by trappers, loggers and miners starting in the
early-to-mid 19th century. The history of the area doesn't seem to mention any open hostility between the native populations and the emigrating
caucasian population - indeed both sides seemed to have benefited greatly from a mutual cooperation at the time. Though I suspect the actual
settlements would have been much closer to a large river running through my city far away from the location in question, I wouldn't consider it
impossible that it may have been a burial or religious spot at one point in history. Who's to know?
One historical tidbit that may also hold relevance is a very large and destructive forest fire that burned through the area not long after the city
was founded and being built in the 1910's. Every structure was essentially razed to the ground and the official death toll was 78, however that
didn't account for perhaps hundreds of trappers, prospectors, miners and other entrepreneurs living and working in the forest - with no official
documentation or monitoring system in place - that may have perished in the fire without a trace. It has been estimated that as many as 200 or 300
prospectors may have died without discovery or investigation. Perhaps that specific spot might have been where a group of fortune-seekers met their
fiery demise, unable to outrun the flames hot enough to warp railroad tracks and fuse coins together (as per local museum exhibits)?
