Malachite Man




The Malachite Man


140 million years ago


In 1995 or 1996 a dozer operator working in Utah uncovered bones located below the surface in sandstone. A total of ten sets of human bones were found and partially fossilized with malachite and torqoise minerals. The position and depth of the bones indicate they were buried in a catastrophic event such as a flood rather than buried.


The pictures of the malachite man are identical to the pictures of the moab man found in 1971 and proved to be of recent origin, 200 to 300 years old, when tested by UCLA. The bones were found in soft sandstone, approximately 15 feet deep and buried in standard Native American fashion. The green coloring of the bones are not from fossilization but from seeping copper from the soil into the bones. The finders of the Malachite bones have not provided any physical evidence of the bones for scientific analysis.


The bones were found in 50 to 100 foot deep sandstone from the Cretaceous period. It does not seem likely that these people were the victims of a mine collapse for several reasons. Among those buried were small children which would not likely be in a mine. There were no tunnels found during the excavation of the area and no bones were crushed by falling debris. It is also very unlikely that they buried there as their positions indicate they were not laid in the ground but tumbled. Also, they would not have been buried over 100 feet in hard sandstone. The ground the bones were found in are from the Cretaceous period and dated at about 150 million years. It is also the same formation that exists at Dinosaur National Monument.


The evidence presented for the legitimacy of the bones as ancient fossilized human remains is compelling. The "Malachite Man" web site makes a distinction between the original Moab Man discovery and the more recent Malachite Man discovery. The bones in the photographs appear to be in deep rock and not in soft sandstone. But, the lack of evidence and response to the established scientists claims causes one to question the actual age and location of the bones. As the Moab Man has been dated at 200 to 300 years old, it would appear that these bones found in the same vicinity are also from that timeframe. Unless more scientific research is completed on these bones they cannot be accepted as ancient. Even though the evolutionary view of time cannot have humans existing during the Cretaceous period causing a strong doctrinal bias toward the interpretation of the evidence, their arguments are valid.
