Hi,

Has anyone seen this rocks near Shinook before? :scratch2:

[br]Click to enlarge[/br]

I was mining there last night and I ran into them. They look like music rocks. :D I did some mining runs around there in the beginning of January and I don't remember seeing them.

Does anyone have more info about this?

Thanks,
Sitram

Just because I haven't run into them before it means I might have alsheimer?

Does anyone know what's their name or if that place has a name?

Wow, I'd never seen them before either, and I set off hunting from Shinook in a variety of different direction fairly often :eek:

They do look like big speakers...

ThanX for sharing :thumbup:

Yep always been there. Now to continue specualting what they are. I always refer to them as the fans because that the smallest word to describe them though to me they look more like wind powered generators. But I have also heard them refered to as the drive-in speaker thingies. The antennae though are a mystery. Maybe for remote monitoring of the units performance.

1k EFD to whoever can post a mining global in the same area with the stones.

The picture must contain at least one stone nearby and quite visible(not on the far edge of the screen).

Let the bombs drop!!! :ahh:

Actually, I have it on good authority that these structures are "PED-suckers"--you load up your PED card with cash and this is where it goes. If you listen very carefully, you can hear the sound of coins falling into a VERY deep well (aka MA's bank account!) :silly2:
