Perhaps I was slightly hyperbolic in my statement that evidence of mining is "absolutely everywhere" -- I travel extensively and frequently in the American West and the evidence of mining truly is absolutely everywhere out there. But, I do think that ancient mining evidence doesn't necessarily have to be on a massive scale. It could be in "human proportion", as you call it, and still be ancient and exist unexplained and/or ignored by the common geological/archaeological narratives.Not to rain on the parade but I have never seen any evidence of ancient mining here on this little island other than human sized evidence of recent mining and so called historical times, not ancient times mining.
I've said a few times there is a reason why the City of London is located within the city of London on this island and the fake royals have to walk into it in common dress 'as commoners' and I have no idea why maybe its connected to this lack of material evidence.
Neither have these eyes seen any evidence of giants be they ten feet tall or thirty feet tall fom ancient or recent history. Everything here is in human proportion, animals, plants, trees, buildings, infrastructure. Atlantis corrupted to Albion maybe that's why the foreigner within is here, who knows.
Not following your comment on the possible connection to the royals but I am curious if you could explain it further.
