The Adirondack Mountains

The Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York are referred to by some as "New Old Mountains". The composition of these mountains defines them as being over one billions years old, but the physical resemblance is one of relatively new mountains.

While researching the Perigee: Zero cratering and ejecta sequences, it became apparent that the Adirondack Mountains are the manifestation of a PZ ejecta mega emplacement. The rock structures are tortured and folded in a jumble signifying massive compressional and displacement forces. Well-accepted dating techniques have effectively dated these rocks as ancient, yet there are virtually no erosional channels cut deeply into the structure, only surface streams are present. Geologist in New York suggest this is because they were only recently uncovered after being buried under significant overburden. They recognize that the removal had to be very rapid. Another corroborating fact for the PZ hypothesis is the relatively thin layer of soil present across the area. This leaves the Adirondacks having no good farming areas in it. According to Wikipedia, "Algonquian and Mohawk Indians used the Adirondacks for hunting and travel, but they had no settlements in the area". Considering the significant expanses of lakes and forested terrain, it is certainly enigmatic that there were no settlements in that area.

The graphic below presents the PZ generic ejecta overlay imposed on the mountain area.

The graphic highlights the Herkimer Diamond Mines, directly at the ejecta strike point. Discussed in the Mineralization section, these deposits are comprised of unique quartz crystal formations that are of very high silicate purity. Some of the oldest rocks in Mexico are located in the Oaxacan Complex; it contains rocks 900 to 1100 Ma in age (Ortega-Gutierrez,1981). The age corresponds well to that of the Adirondacks, and the entire Grenville complex. Both areas have been found to contain iron, titanium, garnet, quartz and zircons.

The following graphic is from a well-written paper that attempts to associate the Adirondack area with the Grenville orogen sequence.

Note the? marks shown in the display of both the Adirondack belt area proper, and most interestingly in the craton reference layer below it. We suggest that the Adirondacks are actually resting upon the Niagara sedimentary sequence from the Greenville out-wash delta.

The lack of early human settlement is supportive of the hypothesis. This is not a remote, desolate region - at least not in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The village of Indian Lake is situated in the heart of those beautiful mountains, the Adirondacks, 1750 feet above sea level.  The town is composed of Indian Lake village, Sabael, Big Brook, Cedar River, a part of North River and Blue Mountain Lake village.  This beautiful little place, the Matubla of the Indians and their legendary burying ground, is situated on the shores of Blue Mountain lake, a famous summer resort.  indian lake, from which the town derives its name, is three miles south of the village.  It is surrounded by wooded hills and mountains sloping gently back from the shores and the little hamlet, Sabael, nestles in one of the hollows on the lake.        One day about the year 1765 a lone Indian left the province of Quebec and journeying through the Canadian woods came at last to the shores of Lake Champlain.  At this time, the woods were very dense and only those gifted in woodcraft such as the Indians, were able to make their way unmolested through them.  When our Indian reached these shores, he probably fashioned a canoe of birch bark and launching it sailed up that sheet of water which later became the scene of many historical struggles.  We have no history to tell us the hardships the young brave suffered nor the stops he made while on his way, but we have a legend that when reaching the southern end of the lake, he left it and plunged into the vast deep forests on the New York side.  He journeyed through these pathless forests on the lookout for moose, because for these he had made his journey, to relieve his starving tribe.        One day breaking thorugh a covert of underbrush, his customary Indian habit of silence gave way and he gave an exclamation of delight.  He stood on the shores of a placid little lake, the first human being ever known to gaze on those waters hwich were named by the early settlers, Indian lake, after the Indians.

The satellite image of the mega ejecta divot emplacement manifested as the Adirondack Mountains suggests an arrival from the SW @ 229º. Tracing back along the azimuth, and accounting for the differences in earth rotation velocity vectors when moving north to south, we have identified a suggested excise site for the landform. A cordillera of mountains runs long the Pacific coast of southern-most of Mexico. A significant gap in the structure at the isthmus of Tehuantepec may be the original location of this terrestrial mass. A review of the proposed PZ impact series is discussed in the Gulf of Mexico Yellow chapter.

Proposed site of PZ impact ejecting the Adirondack emplacement

The Sierra Madre del Sur extends 1,200 kilometers along Mexico's southern coast from the southwestern part of the Cordillera Neovolcánica to the nearly flat isthmus of Tehuantepec. Mountains in this range average 2,000 meters in elevation. The range averages 100 kilometers in width, but widens to 150 kilometers in the state of Oaxaca. The narrow southwest coastal plain extends from the Sierra Madre del Sur to the Pacific Ocean. The Sierra Madre de Oaxaca begins at Pico de Orizaba and extends in a southeasterly direction for 300 kilometers until reaching the isthmus of Tehuantepec. Peaks in the Sierra Madre de Oaxaca average 2,500 meters in elevation, with some peaks exceeding 3,000 meters. South of the isthmus of Tehuantepec, the Sierra Madre de Chiapas runs 280 kilometers along the Pacific Coast from the Oaxaca-Chiapas border to Mexico's border with Guatemala.

A review of the archaeological history of the area is supportive.

Pre-Columbian American > Peoples of Oaxaca and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec:Pictorial books of the Mixtec of Oaxaca record events in the lives of ruling families covering seven centuries, but, again, happenings are fixed only by the day on which each occurred and the year in which the day fell. Sequence is usually clear, but at times there is doubt as to which 52-year period is meant when parenthetical material, such as life histories of secondary characters, is inserted.No era is recognizable. A clouded entry concerning the descent to Earth of the Sun and Venus, perhaps assignable to AD 794, is a logical starting point, but other entries are earlier.

Our proposed event date range for the Gulf of Mexico Yellow PZ event and the Adirondack emplacement is 950 AD to 1050 AD.
