"In West Africa, an ancient people called the Akan populated the location that we now call Ghana around the 11th-century CE." Seem a bit like Annunaki to me. Names change over the ages but still seem familiar. Just dragging in the Annunaki gold miners who some believe were here for a few hundred thousand years, mining and experimenting with the locals.All this digging was probably for gold mostly - same as it ever was, to quote David Byrne.
Maybe mining is what happened to Africa.
Which Country is the World's Largest Producer of Gold?
Prior to China grabbing the top spot, South Africa used to be the world's largest production of gold. However, increased complications and costs linked to gold mining in South Africa has caused gold production in the country to decrease. South Africa is now the world's sixth largest producer.

Yes that was awful and this goes on all over the planet, no matter what shape it is, it's still being trashed big time. And this is just not "chicken little" type rhetoric all we have to do is do a little searching and it's everywhere humans can extract something from the ground.Brazil dam collapse: 10 bodies found and hundreds missing This is heartbreaking, for those families, for the environment, for the planet. Why are we so horrible as a species?? This whole planet is just one big open-pit mine from which we continue to extract every bit of mineral wealth we can get our greedy hands on. Won't we eventually run out of stuff to dig out of the ground? What then, move to another planet and start over?
I do believe the Earth was a mining outpost. If you look today at the scale and scope of mining, surface mining, copper mines, iron, gold silver coal, diamonds, all kinds and manner of mining, it's a huge planet wide endeavor, so if a group like the Anunnaki came here to do whole-sale mining on a scale that makes what is happening now seem like nothing, they could have inadvertently created alot of natural wonders for us to look at. They could have very well stripped and destroy most of the surface. I think it's amazing that all of Earth is not barren like Australia for instance. Or other vast wastelands and deserts. It's pretty astounding that anything ever grew back.
Maybe we did come from Mars, after we destroyed it.
Creation of Rock Strata in the Ozarks
The Ozarks were formed in a different way. They are the result not primarily of folding and faulting but of erosion. The rocks that formed the Ozarks were originally sand, silt, and the remains of marine animals laid down in a shallow sea at the beginning of the Paleozoic Era, which began 542 million years ago. These deposits of sediment were put down in layers as the environment and sea level changed over time. Thus layers of sand were deposited on top of layers of finer grained silt, and in some places the remains of calcium-rich corals and the shells of sea creatures created layers on the sea bed. As time progressed this layer cake of sediment became rock. The sand layers became sandstone, the silt layers became shale and siltstone, and the shells and coral became limestone. The result was a mostly flat, slightly southward-sloping area of interbedded limestone, sandstone, shale, chert, and siltstone. In the Late Paleozoic Era the region experienced a broad area of geologic uplift. The elevation was raised and a large dome-shaped plateau was formed, but the original rock strata, or layers, were not disrupted.
encyclopediaofarkansas.net:So how did this layer cake of rock become a mountain range? As the uplift took place the rivers in the region began to erode their stream beds deeply into the layers of mostly flat rock, exposing the strata in bluff faces like this one on the Buffalo River. This took considerable time but the result is rather spectacular.
So the Ozarks are not so much a mountain range as a very very old eroded plateau. The differential rates at which the different layers of rock in the Ozarks eroded led to the creation of step-sided mountains as well as sheer bluff faces. It was this process that gave the region its distinctive flat-topped ridges and narrow hollows
lakeexpo.com:Almost 100 million years ago, in what is now Pike County, nature created one of the world’s most unusual diamond-bearing formations, the big volcanic “pipe” that now serves as the centerpiece of Crater of Diamonds State Park. Famous today for recreational mining, the eroded old crater once inspired generations of diamond hunters to dream of commercial success. The history of that long quest—the expectations, the contention, and the repeated frustration—is, in itself, an invaluable legacy of the Arkansas diamond field.
From the April 25, 1934 Springfield Daily News: A large mound with five white oaks growing atop it blocked the front view at the farm of J.D. Crain near Lake of the Ozarks. After several days spent removing the trees and much of the dirt, Crain came upon broad and flat rocks. Removing the rocks, Crain was astonished to find seven skeletons. While six of the skeletons were of normal size, one measured 8 feet, 4 inches. No valuables were found with the skeletons, but seven pieces of petrified material in the shape of human hearts were found. Eventually, Crain and others dug a hole near his front porch, placed the bones in a box and reburied them.
From the encyclopedia of NA Giants:"The Osages are so tall and robust as almost to warrant the application of the term gigantic: few of them appear to be under six feet, and many are above it. Their shoulders and visages are broad, which tend to strengthen the idea of their being giants."
I hope you can catch my drift here. I should also mention that in sauntering around the Ozarks for the past 6-8 months, I have come across a lot of evidence of what looks like areas that have been machine cut, perfectly straight cuts directly into the stone. I generally don't take modern technology out there with me, but the next time I do I will try and get some photos, as google was not super helpful in finding these "formations."The name "Osage" was a corruption of their own name, "Was-haz-he," made by the French, or, as the artist-explorer Catlin writes it, "Wa-saw-see." Catlin, in his "American Indians," says that they were the tallest race in North America, either among the red or white men. He states that few were less than six feet in stature, and that many were six and one-half and seven feet. They were well-proportioned, good looking, rather narrow in the shoulders, and, like most tall men, rather inclined to stoop. Their movements were graceful and quick. In war, or the chase, they were equal to any of the tribes about them. Though long living on, or near, the borders of civilization, they studiously rejected all civilized customs, and uniformly dressed in skins of their own preparation.
I honestly think the subject of ancient mining is a big and important issue. A large portion of the Earth was essentially scraped cleaned and dug deep.
I haven't worked out to my satisfaction if it was mined by the giants who used to inhabit Earth and all the resources were used by them on Earth, or if the abundance of natural resources left Earth for some other place.
Just google image search today's mining operations world wide and it's an eye opener. If we puny little humans can do such damage on an epic scale, just think what a land of Giants would have been able to do.

Since I think were were designed/created/tinkered with genetically, it's not a stretch at all to think our entire world was built by design."Seeing how we really dont know our history it is very possible that we are slaves on this planet and everytime we get close to the the truth "they" reset our memory "
What if our predecessor were really smart and environmental-masters. Then it's possible the old ones constructed even the smallest insect as part of a wonderfully designed living organism?
I was thinking about "Nepal" then your pictures triggered a recollection. Once you leave the small valleys of the western side and start up toward "China" the countryside appears as if a cataclysmic event of Biblical proportions had destroyed as far as one could venture."If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck" - we all heard of this so-called "duck test". It suggests that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics. For open minded people, the below "habitual characteristics" could become a sanity test as well.
If we take this "duck test" into consideration, than our planet Earth is nothing but one huge giant quarry. A type of quarry where coal, copper, uranium, nickel, gold and other natural resources were mined long (or not so long) time ago. Striking similarities could make an open minded person to, at least, look into the issue.
Below we can see the pictures of several quarries. These are the result of our civilization mining in various parts of the world.

The above quarries are gigantic in size. And the equipment used to produce such drastic terrestrial changes is impressive indeed. This equipment is presented below.
Bucket Wheel Excavators:
Their larger models reach boom lengths of 260 feet (80m), weigh 13,000 tons, and move 12,500 m3/h. The largest BWE ever constructed is TAKRAF's Bagger-293, which weighs 14,200 tonnes and is capable of moving 240,000 cubic metres of overburden every day. Excavations of 497,000 cubiic yards (380,000 cubic metres) per day have been recorded.

The above are explained as incenses, and pendants.
We also might have some depictions of the stone cutters, pertaining to the same time frame. It's very easy to dismiss these as pure coincidences, of course. But isn't it exactly the type of explanation we get all the time?
Now let us take a look at some of the prominent NATURAL objects. Supposedly they exist for tens of thousands of years. Some of those you might even be familiar with. Some are protected wonders of tourism. Below we have places like Grand Canyon, Antarctica, Greenland, Asian Mountains, Utah parks. These are just a few examples. You can easily find more. You might have seen some other ones yourself. Compare these to the quarries above.

Spoil Tips (artificial)
Once all the minerals, (and what not) are taken out, we end up with Spoil Tips. A spoil tip (also called a spoil bank, boney pile, gob pile, bing, batch, boney dump or pit heap) is a pile built of accumulated spoil – the overburden or other waste rock removed during coal and ore mining. And here is what they look like. Once again, these are not natural formations. This waste is a byproduct of mining. Some are known to burn on the inside. Please google-help yourself.

It might be a long shot, but judging by where our Uranium is... may be there is a reason the Grand Canyon looks the way it does. And may be the United States are not the first ones to mine it.

Looks to me like somebody might have done some major mining on our planet, and forgot to tell us about it. Then again, may be they did but it got "lost in translation" through all those burnt books and libraries. And may be that mountain next to you is just a gigantic spoil tip. Go figure now...
Totally agree with your assessment of that region and I do believe that the entire Earth was mined. And I also think there was indeed a "War of the Gods".I was thinking about "Nepal" then your pictures triggered a recollection. Once you leave the small valleys of the western side and start up toward "China" the countryside appears as if a cataclysmic event of Biblical proportions had destroyed as far as one could venture.
In my opinion this is far worse than Siberia.
A few pictures from the Mustang River area are attached
Nepal's history tells of a large battle between two Gods Vishnu and Siva . they are said to have used a weapon that destroyed everything into dust, flew through the air like a ball of fire. Just thought the sword looked similar to a electrical relay?
My point the mountainous terrain of Nepal looks to have been mined then blown to dust similar to the Twin Towers.
Here's an interesting fact that might tie in with the removal of resources from the earth's crust. Scientists tell us that, in very, very small amounts of partial microseconds, the Earth's rotation is changing - speeding up in the main (sometimes slowing, but over hundreds of years the average is an increase). One of the things that could cause this is a removal, off-planet, of those resources. Lighter planet spins faster. If you reverse multiply the slight increase, but over a period of 432,000 years, you arrive at a year of 360 and not 365.15 days. This is the dating used by our earliest recorders of time in Sumeria and Egypt, and the 432,000 figure is found buried in a report of the various reigns of kings of Sumeria by Beorusus. It is also repeated in the Edda's of the Norse, where the halls and doors of Valhalla add up to this mysterious 432,000. Perhaps these ancients, or not so ancients, knew something that we have managed to forget?"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck" - we all heard of this so-called "duck test". It suggests that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics.

Lots of good questions JD755 in your post. I keep coming back to the conundrum of how this subject and so many others are so deeply hidden from us. Where's Occam's Razor in all this? We can't even formulate the simplest, most likely scenario. All possibilities have impossible leaps of logic.Running with the idea of ancient/recent mahoosive total mining as this thread and its contents allude to it strikes me there is mine tailing evidence of various types, mud food evidence of various types and that seems to be it.
I like this because it fits in quite nicely with what I believe. Whatever was taken, was taken "off world" or to another dimension. Or how about an alternate Universe where another Earth needed what we had, they used up or destroyed their own natural resources, even screwed up their dirt and nothing would grow anymore. Who knows.Here's an interesting fact that might tie in with the removal of resources from the earth's crust.

Yeah for sure and I'm also a big fan of the rotary excavator. It accomplished some nice work in the Antarctic and just about every other place as well.Here is a machine that could create the Grand Canyon pretty quickly. It would be rather naive to think any previous advanced civilization could not have had a similar machine. If they “left” the planet, they would have taken the machines with them, hence no trace of the machinery. If they became extinct, steel machinery would have rusted away before next civilization formed.
