Modern Puebloan descendants of the Anasazi, including the Hopi have asked that the term Ancestral Puebloan be used instead of Anasazi. Anasazi in Navajo means "enemy ancestor" or "ancient people who are not us."
The truth is that no one knows for sure though there are some pretty good guesses. The chances are that a number of processes combined to create the views that you see in todays Grand Canyon. The most powerful force to have an impact on the Grand Canyon is erosion, primarily by water (and ice) and second by wind. Other forces that contributed to the Canyon's formation are the course of the Colorado River itself, vulcanism, continental drift and slight variations in the earths orbit which in turn causes variations in seasons and climate.

Now their is no real explanation on how the Grand Canyon was formed.

Just assuming they come from Proxima Centauri, 40 million million kilometers (4.8 light years) is a long way to transport ingots, diamonds or anything as well as to supply necessities of life a mining crew would need.

Interesting theory. I hope you don't mind if I point out some things that would need an explanation before it is somewhat plausible.
As a matter of fact I watched a documentary on the Anasazi last night on the History channel and found them quite a fascinating bunch, although I seriously doubt they could have been the Annunaki. Firstly, the term Anasazi as you have mentioned was not the name which they gave for themselves, but was given them by other tribes of the region whom saw them as outsiders. They were a migratory bunch and left markings of their journeys all over the valleys. So the explanation that they were merely human outsiders is just as plausible.
The Anasazi were also a fairly recent tribe, going back as early as 800 years. There remain intact corn cobs lying in their abandoned dwellings. So they were not exactly ancient. Although I'm willing to concede that these may merely be descendants. Although these dwellings are in fact fairly primitive and do not indicate that these peoples are descendants of a technologically incredible species.
But I think the biggest problem for this theory is the very highly conclusive evidence that the canyons were merely sculpted by the meanderings of the Colorado river. You would need to show that the seam which has been excavated has any traces of minerals that could be valuable. Gold is not valuable at all as it has very limited practical use. If I'm not mistaken the canyon is solely sandstone, which will have nothing besides caves in it.
So, there's nothing there to mine, it looks like a natural river valley, and the Anasazi are not really ancient...

Right now there are questions arising as to whether it was actually a river or not due to the pure size of it. There was also talk that if these canyons were created by the river then nearly every river similar in size or larger would have a similar carving effect of it's terrain and there would be many places like this one.

I still maintain that gold is not a valuable substance. In terms of homeopathy... right. Find me one placebo controlled test with positive results and I'll be a convert forever. But you'll never find one. And I seriously doubt an alien species would come all the way over here just to mine an aesthetic.

Also on C2C, with in the last couple months, there was a Dr (name escapes me) who talked of caves in the GC that had Egyptian artifacts in them. They are still guarded by Indians.
