Concerning the ancient tungsten spirals and strange remains mentionned underneath, I have just managed to see a recent TV documentary, in which the case was investigated and explined as such: the pieces are waste from a long forgotten soviet plant, they buried it, and it fooled the russian discoverers of the site insofar that they estimated the geological age from the depth, which was a mistake. The tungsten spirals for example are ordinary light bulb tungsten. This explanation has convinced many although not all, but in any event I wanted to provide it.

I'd like to know how these were found. It says gold miners on a river found them. OK were they panning the river? Did they have a sluce built where they were depositing dirt and ore from an excavation? Was it a small mine? What?
In general terms I'd prefer if these types of artifacts were found encased in stone rather than simply loose in the dirt even if the depth was in very old. strata. Then they're not fake or haven't found their way to the location by a natural means.
