No. No hominid coexisted with the dinosaurs.
What the site doesn't tell you is that he's being very dishonest:
Malachite Man: more recently, creationist Don Patton has claimed that the discovery of a number of malachite-encrusted skeletons between 1990 and 1996
is evidence that humans existed long before they were supposed to. It turned out that some of the photos of Malachite Man on his website were
identical to photos that were published of the Moab Man skeletons in the February 1975 issue of Desert Magazine. (For more information, visit The Life
and Death of Malachite Man, by Glen Kuban.)
There is as yet no published material on these skeletons, but the fact that they were found in the same copper mine as the Moab Man skeletons suggests
that they are also recent.
The "Moab man"/"Malachite man" are fairly recent burials; Indians killed in a cave-in while digging for azurite in that cave.
Moab Man: two green-stained partial skeletons were found in 1971 near Moab in Utah. Creationists have claimed that they were found in a Mesozoic (over
65 million years old) rock formation, but testimony from the anthropologist who helped excavate them shows that they were in loose sand, and partly
decayed and not at all fossilized.
One of the problems creationists have is that they don't know the difference between a fossil and a non-fossil (the other is that they fake
evidence.) A fossil means the bone has been turned into rock. Not covered with rock (concretion) but has become rock.
They tend to misidentify old bones as fossils (they aren't) and concretions as fossils (they aren't. Concretions can form in as little as 10
