In the U.S.A., there are some gold bearing areas with similar looking terrain. I call that "gold country". I get the feeling you are not from the U.S.A. I actually have no idea if that is a gold bearing area, but I still think digging behind that rock will be a good experience for you.

I don't think there is a cave there, just looks like a rock naturally there.

I would be very careful...since it's "near historic ruins", then you could have issues with the law near you, depending on how the law reads, especially considering that you said that paperwork needed to be done but you didn't want to bother with that.


That being said, nothing any of us say will change your mind I'm sure, so just be careful and don't get hurt no matter what you decide to do.

That is one big rock!
It's not illegal unless you get caught.

You say not illegal, but you don't want to get permission. Is this private property you are on? If so that's trespassing...

Legality aside, Bet you could rent (cheaply) an optical pipe inspection set up. Find a spot around the bottom, sides or top you can squeeze it in and take a look see.

...Some of the old timers moved massive weights with a lever long enough and a fulcrum to place it upon....I knew a skinny little 80yr old farmer up in MN...it was amazing what that old guy could lift with the right lever..Theres historical precedence....

Archimedes would take one look at that little rock, go up into that treeline and find himself a lever and simply pop that stone out of the way...

Edward Leedskalnin of the Coral Castle fame would probably lift and balance that rock up on some sort of point and make a sculpture out of it for giggles.......

Do you have an idea how to move this rock or a part of it fastly and stealthly without bringing unwanted attention. Or better yet to know if there is something behind without moving it ?

Thanks.
Not sure where that you are from, but if you don't have permission, why do you believe you can go there and start attempting to gain access to the cave?

Hello guys,

Sorry for making you waiting. I returned to the rock last week ( it's 400km far from my town ), i bought a 4 Tons hydraulic jack as you told me and a metal rod. I tried with all my power but it was really hard to move it, if you look at the picture you can see thar it moved few milimeters.

You think i must return with a bigger jack ? Thanks.
