The discovery, about a year ago, of possibly-extraterrestrial
nano-artefacts from the upper Pleistocene in the Ural mountains, led to
violent arguments. Are these really remnants of some unearthly technology,
or merely industrial waste from our own times? The present report, by the
Central Scientific Research Institute for Geology and Prospecting for
Precious and Non-Ferrous Metals (ZNIGRI) in Moscow, which has now been
translated into German, emphasises the possibility of an extraterrestrial

In my book WENN GOETTER GOTT SPIELEN (When Gods play God) [1] as also in
Ancient Skies [2], I reported an unbelievable find of numerous metallic
artefacts in Russia. I was told from several quarters that such objects
simply couldn't exist, and that I had been carried away by my imagination.
But now, new visual material, and a translation of a laboratory report from
Moscow by a sworn translator, support my conclusion that we are here
dealing with possible technical artefacts of extraterrestrial origin.

Let's recapitulate: since 1991, more and more mostly spiral-shaped objects
have been found, on the banks of the rivers Narada, Kozim, and Balbanyu in
the eastern Ural mountains. They are composed principally of tungsten,
molybdenum, and copper [1, 2]. It was extremely fortunate that these
discoveries were made in the course of official exploration. The
expeditions were mounted with a view to exploiting precious and non-ferrous
metals in this regions, and geological and mineralogical analyses were
carried out. The work was under the auspices of the Central Scientific
Research Institute for Geology and Prospecting for Precious and Non-Ferrous
Metals (ZNIGRI) in Moscow, which comes under the Committee of the Russian
Federation for Geology and Exploitation of Mineral Resources.

As I was told by Dr. Valerii Ouvarov (St. Petersburg), further analyses of
the mysterious spiralswere carried out by the out-stations of the Russian
Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg and in Syktyvar (former capital of
the Komi ASSR), and also at an independent institute in Helsinki.

I have before me the Expertise No. 18/485 of 29th November 1996, by the
aforementioned Institute (ZNIGRI) [3], the original Russian text of which I
reproduced in my book WENN GOETTER GOTT SPIELEN. Due to the short time
before the book went to press, a correct and complete translation was not
possible. This was only possible after a sworn translator had been brought
in [4].

The author of the Expertise is Scientific Assistant Mme. Dr. E. W.
Matveyeva, of the Section for Geology, Prospecting Techniques, and
Economics of Precious Metal Alluvial Deposits. She reports first on the
development of the discovery site, then the testing procedures used for the
analysis of the thread-shaped tungsten spirals in the alluvial deposits of
the Balbanyu river. The exact location of the site is given by ZNIGRI as
follows: it is a development in the alluvial deposits of the third
flood-terrace on the (looking downstream) left bank of the river Balbanyu,
oriented along borehole line no. 106. Loose sediments are found in this
development, which are represented as follows, working upwards from the
oldest to the youngest deposits:

1 A structured weathering-crust (alternating chalk and carbon-containing
slate with grey-blue and brown-yellow banding: visible thickness 0.5 - 1.0

2. Included lenticles (Einschlusslinsen) of 0 to 0.2 metres of
weakly-sorted sand, gravel, clay, and fine detrital material, which can be
designated as erosion products of stratum 1. described above.

3. Deposits of grey gravel and detrital material of various grain sizes
with well washed-out sands and a visible thickness of 1 to 1.7 metres,
which could be investigated for possible gold content.

4 Gravel-containing sand and clay deposits, grey-coloured, with a visible
thickness of 2.0 metres. In the upper region of this sediment can be seen
evidence of disturbance by grading work.

As regards the age of the strata which contain the tungsten and molybdenum
artefacts, Dr Matveyeva states as follows: The layer which contains the
spiral-shaped objects is characterised as gravel and detritus deposits of
No. 3 stratum, which in our view, show inner-sedimentary erosion of
polygenetic accumulative layers (i.e. layers composed of material of
various origins). From their orientation these layers can be dated to
100,000 years and correspond to the lying parts (i.e. the lower regions) of
the Mikulinsk horizon of the upper Pleistocene.[3]

In the geological time-scale, the Pleistocene is that part of the
Quaternary, the latest geological epoch, which began about 2 million years
ago and ended around 10,000 years ago. After that followed the Holocene, in
which we are at the moment.

The report continues by describing the tests carried out, which include the
use of an electrom microscope type JSM T-330 made by the Japanese firm
Jeol. This also yielded data of various spectroscopic analyses [5].

Particular attention should be paid to the final conclusion reached by the
Moscow institute. Report No. 18/485 states that the age of the deposits and
the results of the tests give a very low probability to the assumption that
the origin of these unusual, thread-shaped tungsten crystals is of a
technogenic cosmic nature, due to the rocket take-off route from the
Plesetsk space-station over the polar part of the Ural region.

In plain language: these objects cannot have originated from earlier test
rockets or similar fired from Plesetsk. The key word of the report comes
finally to the point: The data obtained allow the possibility of an
extra-terrestrial technogenic origin.[3]

In view of these conclusions, critics will find it very difficult to accuse
me of pseudo-documentationor embarrassing behaviour. On the contrary: I
will try to obtain further investigation reports from the independent
Finnish research institute, on which greater value might be placed.

My hypothesis is that these artefacts are so-called nano-technology, which
I can sustain with reference to a recent publication [6]. Researchers all
over the world are working on miniature pistons, gear wheels, switches, and
other control elements, to be used in nano-robots. These workers will soon
be in a position to achieve results which hitherto have been the province
of science fiction.

Surely the last word has not yet been said about the sensational finds in
the Ural mountains!
