Metal Pipes in Sandstone




Man made pipes embedded in solid rock on a Mountain in Mount Baigong in the Qaidam Basin, Qinghai Province.

Ancient Metal Pipes in Chinese Lake and Mountain

The widespread news of mysterious iron pipes at the foot of Mount Baigong, located in the depths of the Qaidam Basin, Qinghai Province, has roused concern from related departments.

What is astonishing is inside for there is a half-pipe about 40 centimeters in diameter tilting from the top to the inner end of the cave. Another pipe of the same diameter goes into the earth with only its top visible above the ground.

At the opening of the cave there are a dozen pipes at the diameter between 10 and 40 centimeters run into the mount straightly, showing high fixing technique.

About 80 meters away from the caves is the shimmering Toson Lake, on whose beach 40 meters away, many iron pipes can be found scattered on sands and rocks. They run in the east-west direction with a diameter between 2 and 4.5 centimeters. They are of various strange shapes and the thinnest is like a toothpick, but not blocked inside after years of sand movement.

A group of nine Chinese scientists will go to west China's Qinghai Province this month to closely examine the relics.

According to Qin Jianwen, head of the publicity department of the Delingha government, the scraps were once taken to a local smeltery for analysis. The result shows that they are made up of 30 percent ferric oxide with a large amount of silicon dioxide and calcium oxide. Eight percent of the content could not be identified.

"The large content of silicon dioxide and calcium oxide is a result of long interaction between iron and sandstone, which means the pipes must be very old," said Liu Shaolin, the engineer who did the analysis.

"This result has made the site even more mysterious," Qin said."Nature is harsh here. There are no residents let alone modern industry in the area, only a few migrant herdsmen to the north of the mountain."

Parts of two Stories originally published by:

So, how did these man made pipes get embedded in Sandstone that is (depending on who you ask) about 200 Million years old? Like the Hammer and Wood, here you have proof positive that the dating methods are off by millions and even billions of years and proof of the Antediluvian civilization that perished in the flood.

"They are naturally forming and not man-made. Similar pipe-like structures to the so-called Baigong pipes in the form of hematite "pipes" formed as a result of the precipitation of iron oxides within the sediments have been found in Jurassic sandstone like the Navajo in the Southwestern United States as well as in the Pliocene age Citronelle formations in Louisiana. Being more resistant to erosion an amazing variety of shapes including hollow pipes gets exposed as the surrounding sandstone erodes away. Wikipedia goes into more detail: Baigong Pipes"

No - the calcium embedded in the pipes are naturally occurring - which the picture below makes obvious, unless of course the perfect circle can be explained by a monkey's uncle :

"Wikipedia :Because any metallurgical analysis reports the composition of a material analyzed, not in terms of the actual minerals comprising it, but only in terms of percentages of the oxides of the specific elements present, the calcium present in the "pipes" could have been in the form of calcite, a mineral that naturally forms concretions. In 2002, expeditions to study the Baigong Pipes were reportedly planned. Anonymous (2002a, 2002b) reported that a group of nine Chinese scientists were to visit and study them in June 2002. A group of researchers from the Beijing UFO Research Association were making preparations to visit and study these pipe-like features."

"How does naturally forming calcium within the supposed pipes disprove that the pipes aren't themselves naturally occurring hematite structures formed as a result of the precipitation of iron oxides within the sediments such as seen in Louisiana and in the southwest U.S.?"

How does it prove they are, Sherlock?
