This chapter will look at case studies that define how mining of ore is conducted today.

Examples of mining sites are described from the major mining areas of the Pilbara in Western Australia and Minas Gerais in Brazil.

There are also pipes under the lake bed and on the shore. The iron pipes range in size, with some smaller than a toothpick. The strangest part is that they may be about , years old. Dating done by the Beijing Institute of Geology determined these iron pipes were smelted about , years ago, if they were indeed made by humans, according to Brian Dunning of Skeptoid.

And if they were made by humans, history as it is commonly viewed would have to be re-evaluated. Humans are only thought to have inhabited the region for the past 30, years. Even within the known history of the area, the only humans to inhabit the region were nomads whose lifestyle would not leave any such structures behind.
