Most of us paranormal geeks are watching both series, "The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch" on History Channel and "Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch" on Discovery. And we are puzzling over the mysteries, but Utah has long held a LOT of focus for my research team for the rare earth elements, as well as much talk of ancient giants and treasures. Something drove a prior culture and the Aztecs to the area, as well as Spanish Jesuits in search of gold. So, what's the deal with this place of high strangeness?
Researcher Dennis Guern and I will break down some elements we've been watching -
During the Pleistocene Era the Uintas were extensively glaciated. Lakes formed by this process dominate the mountains. ... The Uinta Basin lies south of the Uinta Mountains. The southern rim of the basin is formed by the Tavaputs Plateau of the Book Cliffs, and the western rim is formed by the Wasatch Mountains (SOURCE)
This is an area rich in oil and gas, it's been widely developed, especially all around the Skinwalker Ranch area (just north of the Monument Butte oil fields).
In fact, shale (a geological presence that indicates potential oil reservoirs) contains gamma rays. When added to the presence of uranium, this could add even more to the "radiation" factors of this area.
The two ranches are about 20 miles apart with Blind Frog Ranch in the NNE direction from Skinwalker Ranch. (see picture at top of this post)
We are going to share some maps to shed light on many conditions that could be contributing to or motivating what is going on in these areas.
In studying these factors, we ponder whether what is happening there is incidental (i.e. occurring with unexpected and unintentional outcome, by happenstance) or orchestrated (i.e. conditions utilized by an intelligence).
Below is a map of oil and gas exploration and production (green-oil and red-gas). The black dot in the upper right of center is Skinwalker Ranch location.
Concrete can stop gamma rays, so ideally a concrete room might be a dream getaway on the ranch. Is it a coincidence they found a concrete room in one of the buildings on the ranch? Did someone know something or was it an incidental finding?
Ironsand, also known as iron-sand or iron sand, is a type of sand with heavy concentrations of iron. It is typically dark grey or blackish in colour.It is composed mainly of magnetite, Fe3O4, and also contains small amounts of titanium, silica, manganese, calcium and vanadium.
Ironsand is found worldwide. Although the iron mineral composition of the ironsand is mostly magnetite, the sand is usually mixed with other types of sand that washes downriver or ashore from mountainous or underwater deposits. The exact composition of the sand mixture may vary drastically even in the same geographic region. In some areas the sand may contain mostly quartz, while in others the sand may be made primarily from volcanic rock such as basalt, depending on the types of minerals along the water's path. The ironsand is typically picked up along the way from beds, veins, or inclusions of magnetite, which may originate a great distance from the sand deposits, and washed downstream or along the currents with the rest of the sand. Being heavier than the other sands, it is often deposited in areas where the water experiences a sudden change in direction or speed, such as the widening of a river or where the waves ebb and flow

One question that has come up over the years is whether the radiation in the mines could be hazardous to bats. BCI and the BLM partnered with Northern Arizona University to conduct a study to answer this question. They found that in the summer, bats would generally roost high in the mines, above the radon, which was at low levels. In the winter, radon would rise higher, but the bats were hibernating and their respiratory rate was so low, so it didn’t harm them. (SOURCE)
Shared electrons located in the space between the two nuclei are called bonding electrons. The bonded pair is the “glue” that holds the atoms together in molecular units. SOURCE
Gamma rays can also be generated in the decay of some unstable subatomic particles, such as the neutral pion. Gamma-ray photons, like their X-ray counterparts, are a form of ionizing radiation; when they pass through matter, they usually deposit their energy by liberating electrons from atoms and molecules.
Since gamma rays have so much energy, they pass right through the mirror of a standard optical telescope. Instead, gamma rays are detected by the optical flashes they produce when interacting with the material in a specially designed instrument such as a scintillation detector.
