Gold Mining - How Long Ago?
From Genesis Revisited
by Zecharia Sitchin
Is there evidence that mining took place, in southern Africa, during the Old Stone Age? Archeological studies indicate that it indeed was so.
Realizing that sites of abandoned ancient mines may indicate where gold could be found, South Africa's leading mining corporation, The Anglo-American Corporation, in the 1970s engaged archeologists to look for such ancient mines. Published reports (in the corporation's journal Optima) detail the discovery in Swaziland and other sites in South Africa of extensive mining areas with shafts to depths of fifty feet. Stone objects and charcoal remains established dates of 35,000, 46,000, and 60,000 BC for these sites. The archeologists and anthropologists who joined in dating the finds believed that mining technology was used in southern Africa "during much of the period subsequent to 100,000 BC."
In September 1998, a team of international physicists came to South Africa to verify the age of human habitats in Swaziland and Zululand. The most modern techniques indicated an age of 80,000 to 115,000 years.
Regarding the most ancient goldmines of Monotapa in southern Zimbabwe, Zulu legends hold that they were worked by "artificially produced flesh and blood slaves created by the First People" These slaves, the Zulu legends recount, "went into battle with the Ape-Man," When "the great war star appeared in the sky".
