This chapter contains some detail of the metal shard testing. We started finding them at the site in 1995. The chapter goes into some detail by Steve Colbern, our lead scientist. John Rao of the Open Minds organization funded this research. Colbern has determined through a series of sophisticated tests that the six metal shards tested were 1, all with different exotic coatings, and 2, all were not made with known earth technology.

The six shards were found by Chuck and Nancy Wade with a party of Navajos and friends in 2004 and 2005.
