Ahhh Slayer your usual interesting thread.As this is in a speculative forum,please allow me to speculate.Years ago I recall reading an article which
stated that the area around nazca was rich in Manganese.Maganese is a very useful element, used for many things including combination with other
elements to create hard alloys.
Since reading this particular article I have thought that if "aliens" had mined this area then perhaps this element was what they were mining.As I
recall the article stated that this element was very prevalent in the nazca area. Of coarse this is what got me thinking.Since there was a high
concentration of manganese compounds in this area,it would make sense to mine here.
The photo of the area where the tower stood got me to thinking that it could have been a smelter for smelting the manganese ore.It seems that there
has been a great deal of mining over the previous eras in the area.
It seems that this particular area is quite mineral rich.Some of these minerals are very desirable.
As to the areas that seem to be removed; I wonder if these areas were outcroppings that were exceptionally rich in the minerals they sought.If the
materials mined from these areas were carried off for processing,then there would be no remains to speak of left.Now that being said if the tower site
was indeed a smelter,I would think that there would be tailings and,or slag remains around that area somewhere.I have been unable to find any
information to pertaining to there being any slag or tailings in that area.
I did discover that there was a new figure discovered. This article doesn't have a date for the discovery,but it does list some of the theories that
people have come up with about the nazca area.
Thanks for the heads up on this thread. So here's my 2 cents worth.Highly speculative to suit this forum.
