The thing is that even a sharpened cold chisel will not mark the ‘cauldrons’ (we tried more than once). The metal doesn’t break off and can’t be hammered. On copper a hammer would definitely have left noticeable dents. But this ‘copper’ is covered over with a layer of some unknown material resembling emery. Yet it’s not an oxidation layer and not scale — it can’t be chipped or scratched either. Mikhail Koretsky

Forgive me if this is a stupid idea - but couldn't somebody use google earth to find these disks?

If these things are known, and the location is known, and people have seen them and made sketches of them. Then why are there no pictures or video of them?
I'm not saying I don't believe this...but why would someone go out there...try to scratch it with a chisel and not take a picture??? Unless all these accounts pre-date cameras...I would suspect someone would have taken a picture.
So is there a reason there are no pictures?
Cold, empty, boring and beautiful. Come to Yakutia!!
In 1989, the population of Yakutia was estimated at 1 000 000, including 50% of Russians, 33% of Yakuts, 7% of Ukrainians and 2,3% of autochtons. Some 100 nationalities were recorded.
Now we know the exact GPS-coordinates of the "boiler", and if the other expeditions will want to go in our steps, we can pass the information gathered. "Ivan Matskerle acknowledged that he would again visit Russia. After all, there riddles - field nepahanoe. "For example, in the territory of Yakutia are a lot of interesting puzzles. There is a lake Labynkyr, Hayyr and gate, which, according to the evidence of Soviet geologists, lives a monster. In addition, in the territory of Yakutia are the bones of mammoths, but there is evidence that in the late 19 th century Yakut hunters have seen living mammoths. And, supposedly, in their search for a group of young people went from Yakutsk and never returned - disappeared in the taiga. And only six months later found one of the participants, who went mad and told some strange things. About this legend, I would like to know more detail at this time, but not enough time. I also read that in the Urals is a mysterious valley of death, where people disappear. There, a strange fog, and people found there with a strange reddening of the skin, similar to traces of bleeding.
Same as above
"I remember one of our trip - to Madagascar, where we searched for traces of wood-eating. Instead of trees, feeding on people, we found there trees "kumanga", which is called "diabolical". This tree, which can kill from a distance. Their pollen is poisonous, in calm weather around the tree formed a poisonous space. If a branch of the tree sits a bird, then immediately drop dead, and if a person sits down to rest under it, it would not wake up. Then the locals found his skeleton and begin to suspect that a tree devouring all living things. These trees grow only in one part of Madagascar, and the natives are so afraid that burn. "
In ancient times, the Valley of Death was part of a nomadic route used by the Evenk people, from Bodaibo to Annybar and on to the coast of the Laptev Sea. Right up until 1936, a merchant named Savvinov traded on the route; when he gave up the business, the inhabitants gradually abandoned those places. Finally, the aged merchant and his granddaughter Zina decided to move to Siuldiukar. Somewhere in the land between two rivers that is known as Kheldyu ("iron house" in the local language), the old man led her to a small, slightly flattened reddish arch where, beyond a spiral passageway, there turned out to be a number of metal chambers in which they then spent the night. Zina’s grandfather told her that even in the harshest frosts it was warm as summer in the chambers.
“We didn’t come across shafts going down into the ground with chambers. But I did note that the vegetation around the ‘cauldrons’ is anomalous — totally different from what’s growing around.
It’s more opulent: large-leaved burdock, very long withes, strange grass, one and a half or two times the height of a man. In one of the ‘cauldrons’ the whole group of us (6 people) spent the night. We didn’t sense anything bad and calmly left without any sort of unpleasant occurrences.
Nobody fell seriously ill afterwards. Except that three moths later one of my friends lost all his hair.
And on the left side of my head (the side I slept on) three small sore spots the size of match-heads appeared. I’ve tried to get rid of them all my life, but their still with me today.
"In 1937 I gave the stone to my grandfather, but that autumn he was arrested and taken to Magadan where he lived on without trial until 1968 and then died. Now no-one knows where my stone got to...”
In 1936, a geologist visiting the Olguidakh River (the “place with a cauldron”), found a ‘cauldron’ that was not completely submerged. A smooth hemisphere of metal 2cm thick and with razor-sharp edges, it was reddish in colour. Barely a fifth of it was above ground and the opening in its vault was accessible to a person sitting on a reindeer. The geologist sent its description to the capital city Yakutsk, but no one paid any attention.
While conducting our aerial search for the ‘cauldrons,’ we had found yet another peculiar place – a perfectly circular field of rusty brown boulders where the compass needle went wild. A magnetic mountain?

It turns out that the death valley is the site of many of the russian nuclear bomb tests. As well, the largest ever nuke was dropped here which was the Tzar Bomba, which was a 50Megaton beast. These nukes could be the reason for people becomming ill after visiting.
