Scientology's secret mountain Underground vault in New Mexico

(Jason Bishop III - TAL's Research Services):

Trementina Base
According to the CST, the purpose of the UNDERGROUND BASE is to provide storage space for an archiving project to preserve L. Ron Hubbard's writings, films and recordings for future generations. Hubbard's texts have been engraved on stainless steel tablets and encased in titanium capsules underground. The project began in the late 1980s.

The base includes a number of dwellings and the archives themselves, the latter in a network of underground tunnels. The base also has its own private, concrete airstrip, the San Miguel Ranch Airport (NM53); it is not shown on FAA sectional charts or in navigation databases by the owner's request.

A Place in the Desert for New Mexico's Most Exclusive Circles
The church tried to persuade station KRQE not to air its report last week about the aerial signposts marking a Scientology compound that includes a huge vault "built into a mountainside," the station said on its Web site. The tunnel was constructed to protect the works of L. Ron Hubbard, the late science-fiction writer who founded the church in the 1950s.

Speaking of Scientology, here is a fascinating article written in 1998 by Ted Oliphant III entitled: (It's a MUST READ)

Just an interesting note that I found strange.......

According to a June 1992 Claims Court ruling [1] CST had purchased the original site in 1986 for $250,976, then had invested millions in building an underground vault on the property. But the Federal Register record says both properties were valued at only $28,000 at the time of the land swap in August 1992. There is no record of CST actually building a second vault, so though the vault they built is on the original property—now in the ownership of the federal government—CST's logo (see below) is displayed on the second property that CST received in trade from the U.S. government at a loss. It is unknown what, if anything, was in the vault when it was conveyed to the ownership of the federal government.

Just a little over a year after the trade, on 1 October 1993, the U.S. government granted tax exemption to Scientology.

It seems that the government now holds the land that the vault is on, and the symbols are on adjacent land.

Not sure what to make of that.

PS. There is a thread about this vault from about a year and a half ago. I can't find it in the search, but it had some interesting information if you can find it.
Post a link to the thread if you find the one I'm talking about.
