KING SOLOMONS MINES - KING SOLOMONS TEMPLE
PHOENICIANS (TYRE AND SIDON -CANAANITES)
DOMINATE WORLD SHIPPING AND TRADE
1101 - 970 BC
Pelasgian influence in Spain
King David and King Solomon's reign in Israel.
It was during this time that King David was at the height of his power. While God did not allow David to build the Temple of
Solomon he was allowed to make preparations for its construction. The project was financed through the vast war booty and
tribute payments that poured in from vassel nations. The preparations and instructions to Solomon are recorded in I
Chronicles 22: 1-16.
David accumulated "great stores of iron for nails and clamps" (RSV).
This iron may very well have been mined here in Wisconsin.
He also accumulated "bronze in quantities beyond weighing," (RSV)
Evidence will show that David mined the copper ore from Michigan and it may have been refined here in
Wisconsin, near Rock Lake.
King David also amassed much cedar wood through his alliance with the city-states of Tyre and Sidon.
The harvesting of timber would again account for the desolate plains , void of timber, in North America.
In the course of his wars, David had collected large amounts of gold and silver from tributary nations, and verse 14 quotes
David as summing up his temple preparations with these words:
"With great pains I have provided for the house of the Lord a hundred thousand talents of gold and a million talents of silver,
and bronze and iron BEYOND WEIGHING , for there is so much of it; timber and stone too have I provided." (RSV). -- The
"Lost" Ten Tribes of Israel...Found!, p. 24.
KING SOLOMON AND THE HARVESTING OF NORTH AMERICA
There is archaeological evidence, that the fleets of Solomon and Hiram of Tyre circumnavigated the globe .
Hebrew customs, discovered by the early English settlers in the Americas, were found among some of the Indian tribes,
including the wearing of phylacteries! Minoan and Phoenician coins have been found, and inscriptions of ancient Phoenician
an Minoan scripts, in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and the Star of David was even found in an ancient ruin of the Pueblo
Indians in New Mexico! In the middle of the second millennium, B.C., and down to the time of Solomon, circa 1000 B.C.,
oceanic travel by maritime powers in the Middle East seems to have been fairly common.
In the book BRONZE AGE AMERICA, the late Dr. Barry Fell (Professor Emeritus of Harvard University) records that copper
trading between ancient North America and the Old World was extant prior to and DURING THE REIGN OF KING DAVID!
In his book, we find evidence from ancient inscriptions that Norse kings carried on a
copper trade with the New World in the St. Lawrence River as early as 1700 B.C., seven centuries prior to the
reign of King David.
There is, clear evidence that David's allies, the Canaanite Phoenicians, were included in
the New World copper trade and that some of David's huge stockpile of copper ore came from the Phoenician's
North American trading routes.
Notes Barry Fell --
"Around the northern shore of Lake Superior, and on the adjacent Ile Royale, there are approximately 5,000 ancient copper
mine workings. In 1953 and 1956 Professor Roy Drier led two Michigan Mining and Technology expeditions to the sites.
Charcoal found at the base of the ancient mining pits yielded radio carbon dates indicating that the mines had been operated
between 2000 B.C. and 1000 B.C...The most conservative estimates by mining engineers show that at least 500
million pounds of metallic copper were removed over that time span, and there is no evidence as to what
became of it. BRONZE AGE AMERICA, NY: Wallaby, 1976. P. 261.
Since the mining operations at these North American sites were taking place during the reigns of David and Solomon, it is
more than likely that part of this Lake Superior copper was used to satisfy David's voracious appetite for raw copper for the
Temple. The biggest customers for copper and other raw materials in the world of the time were King David and Israel and,
later, King Solomon."
These ancient Lake Superior copper mines were worked to exhaustion during the reign of King Solomon,
meaning that they were producing during the time that David was stockpiling copper ore "beyond calculation"
for the CONSTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.!
The Bible states that ancient Israel, under King David, was stockpiling massive quantities of copper ore around 1,000 B.C.
Sources also confirm that the North American copper mines ran out of ore during the reign of Solomon. The
connection between the two is quite obvious: most of the ancient North American copper ore was shipped to ancient Israel
and used for the construction of the Temple and later projects of Solomon.

The X Haplogroup – The Genetic Link to our Ancient Atlantean Ancestors
“Must we fall in the old rut and suppose there was no other means of populating the Western Hemisphere except "by way of
Bering’s Strait? “
“Must we still locate a geographical Eden in the East, and suppose a land equally adapted to man and as old geologically,
must wait the aimless wanderings of the "Lost Tribe of Israel" to become populated?”
("A land of Mystery" 1890 article by H.P. Blavatsky)
While mainstream science and academia drag their feet in accepting the fact that other civilizations existed prior to our
modern civilization, their ideologies are flailing in the wind of skepticism –with the discovery of the Haplogroup X found in the
In a 1997 DNA Study a rare mt DNA haplogroup X was found, linking, beyond question, the Mound Builders of North America
with the Guanches of the Canary Islands, the Basques of the Pyrenees, Europe, primarily in parts of Spain, Bulgaria, Finland
and Italy where two to four percent of the population carried it. It was also identified in three percent of living Native American
However, the percentage of individuals among the Iroquois, the haplogroup X was approximately a striking twenty-five percent!
The X haplogroup has also been identified in the Middle East and in 2001, it was again found in a tribe living in the Altaic
Mountains of the Gobi, known as the Altaics.
All of these areas are where Cayce specifically stated Atlantean survivors fled to around 10,000 B.C.
With geneticists in agreement that the Altaic haplogroup X is not from Asia, a lot of holes were shot into the Bering Strait
Theory as well.

Rock Lake, Located in Lake Mills, Wisconsin has a pyramid resting beneath its waters. This pyramid is linked to the people that were
mining the copper in upper Michigan - thus linked to the King Solomon Mines and/or Temple.
The legends of these 'stone tepees' were revived during the mid 1930's when a combination of low and clear water allowed viewing
of a number of its geometric forms, including g pyramids, cones, walls, and trenches.
Again in 1991-92 , unusually clean water conditions allowed two of the sites to be photographed in sufficient detail to prove once
and for all that these were man made structures.
When the first European settlers reached the shores of Rock Lake in the 1830s, they saw several little islands all surmounted by
curious stone buildings. These were the ‘rock tepees’ the Winnebago claimed the ‘Old Foreign Chiefs’ had built before they arrived.
The Winnebago described them as a tribe of powerful sorcerers, who allowed no one near the lake except on special occasions.
Then everybody had to attend magical ceremonies down by the shore, always at night, when the moon and stars were worshiped as
During their ceremonies, the priests would give the onlookers a show, giving the appearance of ‘walking on water’; parading across
the face of the waters with blazing torches outstretched in both hands.
They were viewed walking to the sacred islands which supported the temples and shrines of their most honored dead.
While impressive to the viewers, their ‘walking on water’ procession across the lake was nothing but trickery. They were stepping
on stone causeways lying just beneath the surface of the water!

|The most popular deity of the Aztec was
Quetzalcoatl, the feathered Serpent, the man-
god who brought enlightenment to Middle
America, where he was synonymous with the
planet Venus. Representation of him in sacred
art show Quetzalcoatl wears the ‘ocelocopili’, a
high conical helmet made of ocelot skin. So too,
a stone pipe fashioned in the image of a man
wearing the ocelocopili, now at Madison’s
Historical Museum, was found in Aztalan.
His ocelocopili connects the Aztecs with farm
more than Aztalan. In the Old World story of
‘Cadmus’, the Greek myth with so many
startling parallels to Rock Lake , the hero was
traditionally depicted wearing a ‘Phoenician
Cap’, a tall, conical helmet worn not only by the
Phoenicians, but popular with seafarers along
the Aegean coasts of Asia Minor, to Troy, and
identical to the headgear sported by
