FOIA Archive

Although it seems to be made of myth and legend, the secret military installation tucked inside Archuletta Mesa in Northern New Mexico remains a mystery.

Tales of alien experimentation, torture, and genetic experiments have echoed through UFO lore for decades.  But is it true?

In the beginning of 2009, I was asked to produce and write a one hour episode of UFO Hunters on The History Channel on this very base.  I thought to myself, what could we find, if anything?  I knew it would be a challenge.

In the research phase, I called my friend John Rhodes who was instrumental in offering his research into the base, and how the technology to make a near 5-mile base in a mountain was possible.

He detailed the Subterrene, a piece of equipment that rather than drilling and excavating a mountain where you have tons of dirt leftover, this would bore through with a super heated process that would melt through the dirt leaving little trace behind.

As fantastic as the technology seems, I filed FOIA requests for documents relating to this machine.  And even though John Rhodes found evidence it was tested, I wanted to see what else I could find.

As of this writing, only one document was found.  But you can tell by the pictures - the technology works.

The Subterrene

Use of the Subterrene for Military Drilling Applications [29 Pages, 3.3mb]

A Versatile Rock Melting System For the Formation of Small Diameter Horizontal Glass Lined Holes [24 Pages, 0.9mb]

 The Very High Speed Transit System, August 1972 RAND Corporation [20 Pages, 0.9MB] - This document makes mention of the use of the subterrene, and is included here for reference.  

The Very High Speed Transit or "VHST" concept was put forward some years ago in response to the search for a pollution-free transport method that could operate at speeds competitive with aircraft. The general principles are relatively straightforward: electromagnetically levitated and propelled cars in an evacuated tunnel.

    Even though some consider Dulce underground facilities an urban myth, one thing solid comes from it. something is going on in the area at Dulce, NM. There is an old saying: Where there is smoke, there is fire. This is not a " tourist attraction " so something is up. What better place to hide a underground facility than on a indian reservaton or reservation land. Too many people believe that something is going on up there for it to be nothing. The state of New Mexico has many experimental labs, Sandia labs and White Sands (missile range ). The state seems to be a hub of military testing labs and sites. Not six miles from where I live is a NASA rocket motor test facility, which also hides a earth down link spy sattellite station. The facility looks like a parabolic antenna farm. The imediate question that comes to mind when seeing them is " what has very large parabolic antenna's have to do with the testing of " rocket motors ".  In the 10 plus years I've lived here I have only heard what sounded like rocket motor testing twice. This facility is part of of the (NRO) National Reconnaissance Office Aerospace Data Facility Southwest. A local television station did a report years ago on the facility and found that it does indeed help " big brother " spy on us. So with all this going on, it wouldn't take a stretch of the imagination to think something is really going on at Dulce, NM.

    Take a moment to put together the documents provided here, where the tests come back flawlessly accomplishing what they were after in 1975...No tailings, solid, strong walls of "glassed" and "re-inforced" nature as the by-product of the method...Basically the last "note" on the subject is that it works perfectly, then the subject disapears from public sight. Hello??? The implications are so limitless here, I'm astounded that the fringe-thinkers and disclosure hounds haven't blown this up a little more. It's an awesome topic and this site is the only one with such a comprehensive intro and clearly available docs to back it up.

    After watching the aforementioned episode of UFO hunters, I had to get on here, and look to see if there were any official FOIA documents about the drilling techniques discussed. It's satisfying to find exactly that. Thanks.
