It "almost" seems an error that the clarifying phrase "It has also helped settle the controversy about the only metal known to exist in the pyramid..." by Rowan Hooper and / or an editor or sub editor, gives the impression it's the "only" metal found in the Great Pyramid construction.
I wonder ( and have yet to find ).

They opened the first door in 2002 and then just in the past year or two opened the second door which was found behind the first. It's in the article I think...
Thanks for the update, Scott!
This is super cool, hombres, cause we are hopefully going to soon see detailed images of something made by human hands but unobserved by human eyes for thousands of years... and it's in the great fscking pyramid! One of the most awesome and enigmatic artificial things out there... SO EXCITING!

That stone door with the metal pins to the outside and loops on the inside has to have had a purpose. The most obvious is that the loops are for pulling with ropes since there are likely two of them, but they are on the inside. That shaft is tiny 20cms on each side, so that 'door' is most likely a blocking stone, and might not be all that heavy. It would be reasonable to suppose then that the loops were originally to the outside, the shaft has been raided, and the stone has been pushed back in loops first, making it nigh impossible to pull it out again. Maybe an electromagnet could do the job!
Serafine: Scott... Any ideas yet on what the main "marking" could "mean"? We have a few ideas ourselves... RA or Ra something, being the most popular.... Also we wonder of maybe a sighting rod and "star" etc.
But we consider the markings very early "language" and not the popular "Egyptian Markings" of hieroglyphs and hieroglyphics...
These markings seem to put the "Vyse" findings to task...
Any ideas on these markings?
* Hieroglyphs written in red paint on the floor of a hidden chamber in Egypt's Great Pyramid are numerical signs.
* The builders of the pyramid simply recorded the total length of the southern shaft from the Queen's Chamber: 121 cubits.
* Multiples of 7, 9 and 11 cubits occur frequently in the design of the Great pyramid.
