The phenomenon of “Garut Pyramid” found on a mount in
Garut, West Java, has encouraged the Ancient
Catastrophic Disaster Team to conduct
is carried out to determine the existence of a
man-made structure that formed Mount Putri in Garut
using Superstring geo-electric instruments. The
geo-electric instruments were used to scan geological
layers on the hill by measuring its resistivity.
In a written
statement received by VIVAnews, Monday,
Dec 19, a member of the Ancient Catastrophic Disaster
Team, Iwan Sumule, said that the results of the
geo-electric instruments within 20 meters and 10
meters electrodes showed that there was a horizontal
unconformity on the intrusion (red) rocks within
around 120 meters from the summit.
The finding shows
that the right-side intrusion branch seems to form a
terrain morphological base that has similar
topographical elevation with Cirahong valley.
Then, the 120 meter-limit seems to coincide with
the base of a steeper ascending topography, where the
rocks turn red.
results of the geo-electric instruments within 5 and 3
meters stretch East-West and North-South confirmed the
conclusion that the structure is highly unlikely to be
of natural formation.
The result of a
3D contour plot topographical digital data with 5
meter resolution IFSAR has supported the hypothesis
that there exists an anomaly formation made of sinder
cone hill geological process located on a horizontal
unconformity intrusion base. Moreover, the
excavation material source comes from Cirahong valley
which was located 1-2 kilometers from the summit of
Mount Putri. It is proven that the material
volume from Cirahong valley is similar to the material
volume from Mount Putri.
The C14 carbon
testing result showed that the age of the ancient top
soil layer that has been tested by carbon dating C14
in BATAN is 6000 BC. Meanwhile, the age of the
harder soil layer underneath is 7500 BC. If
there is any hard soil structure underneath the layer,
then the age would be older.
