I don't find that either of the three ever built a pyramid.
If you look at the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, the place where most of the tombs of Egypt are found (there are no tombs in any of the three major Pyramids of Giza), you will notice a similar pattern in the layout of the underground networks there.
how much Gold actually left Egypt & why was history erased.
And your rock-solid dismissal of them as "Deffinetly(sic) not dirt" suggests to me that you don't want to listen to any opinions that don't support your hypothesis of these formations as being fallen columns.

Also, excavation on the Sphinx was halted by the Egyptians because Europeans were stealing the treasures. Recently, there has been digging in the area of the pyramids with new discoveries, but, they have yet to dig deeper into the Sphinx.
There are about 110 pyramids currently known in Egypt, many in a state of great disrepair and almost unrecognisable. Some were built as burial places for kings and others for queens.
VALLEY OF THE KINGS List of Tombs
The statues, jewelry, objects of erotica and various religious symbols were excavated in the 1920's and 1930's by American and German archeologists working at Medinet Habu, a major site of temple ruins on the west bank of the Nile River at ancient Thebes, known today as Luxor. As is the usual practice, the archeologists kept meticulous notes of exactly where each relic was found -- in which buildings, at what depths in the sediments and next to what other artifacts. Without such records, archeology is little more than a treasure hunt, and the materials cannot be reliably dated or their function and meaning reasonably surmised.
There have been rumors of passageways and secret chambers surrounding the Sphinx and during recent restoration work several tunnels have been re-discovered. One, near the rear of the statue extends down into it for about nine yards. Another, behind the head, is a short dead-end shaft. The third, located mid-way between the tail and the paws, was apparently opened during restoration work in the 1920's, then resealed. It is unknown whether these tunnels were constructed by the original Egyptian designers, or were cut into the statue at a later date. Many scientists speculate they are the result of ancient treasure hunting efforts.
