Photo shows an aerial view of the newly constructed Kelly Rock Limited roads and drill sites of 1989 on the northwestern side of Cape Dauphin Mountain and taken in the summer of 1990. Lynn Lake is seen in the background. The rock barren of the 1952 fire site (claimed to be an ancient Chinese City site in the book “the Island of Seven Cities”) can be seen in the distance in the far right upper corner of the photo.

Photo shows the top of the rock knoll that is reported on page 260 of the book “The Island of Seven Cities” to be ancient Chinese Village courtyards. Photo was taken in July of 2006. 

Aerial view of fire barren site of 1968 fire on southern side of Cape Dauphin Mountain (area of spot fire of 1968) showing the large glacier deposited rock rubble pile in center of the opening. This is the area in Mr. Bell’s report where he claims an ancient Chinese Religious site existed. The outline of the 1968 firebreak can be seen along the outside upper edge of the barren opening.

End of a Kelly Rock Limited road leading to a drill site (at bottom end of road just behind the trees) showing the road in June of 2006. This is the spur road seen in photo number one on the extreme left hand side of photo and was constructed in the summer of 1989. Roadway shows signs of re-vegetation since construction of 17 years ago.

Similar photo location as number five taken in summer / fall of 1989 and shows a large drill rig set up on the clearing at end of the road. The clearing is one of the ancient Chinese courtyards described in the book “The Island of Seven Cities” and was constructed in 1989.

Photo shows a view of the fire barren resulting from the 1952 forest fire along the upper slopes of the fire site. This is the location reported in the book “The Island of Seven Cities” to be the town site opening of the ancient Chinese City. Photo was taken in June of 2006.

Upland bog along the Kelly Rock Limited Road system, reported in the book “The Island of Seven Cities” as an ancient Chinese agriculture area and suggested in Cedric Bell’s report to be an ancient rice growing area. Photo was taken in June of 2006.

Photo of one of the drill site clearings showing the plastic well monitoring pipe standing in the center of the drill site from the water well testing carried on in 1989. This is the drill site described in photos numbers 5 and 6. This drill site is reported as an ancient Chinese Village courtyard in the book “The Island of Seven Cities”. The drill sites are the small clearings at the ends of the roads and outlined by squares on page 258 of the book. Photo was taken in June of 2006.

Photo of one of the drill site clearings showing a metal well monitoring pipe standing in the center of one of the drill sites from the 1989 water well monitoring testing by Kelly Rock Limited. This drill site is reported to be an ancient Chinese Village courtyard in the book “The Island of Seven Cities”. Photo was taken in June of 2006.

Close up of a metal well monitoring pipe on a third drill site location constructed in 1989 at Cape Dauphin, again reported in the book “The Island of Seven Cities” to be an ancient Chinese Village courtyard site. Photo was taken in June of 2006.

Close up of drill core box (with rock cores present) located on one of the drill site locations at Cape Dauphin constructed by Kelly Rock Limited in 1989. Several of the drill sites contain these core boxes. Photo was taken in June of 2006.

Weathered rounded and fractured granite rocks at the Cape Dauphin site similar to Gavin Menzies’s Ming Dynasty graves reported in the book “The Island of Seven Cities”. These rock formations can be found in a number of locations at the Cape Dauphin sites.

Photo of the Kelly Rock Limited road construction at Cape Dauphin in summer of 1989 located westward of the old fire sites.

Photo showing Kelly Rock Limited road construction from the summer of 1989 at Cape Dauphin. This road is reported in the book ‘The Island of Seven Cities” to be an ancient and long lost Chinese road from the 1400’s. The road construction in rocky conditions creates the low rocky rubble walls along the sides of the roads as seen in this photo and reported in the book “The Island of Seven Cities”.

Photo showing a ground level view of the top of the granite knoll as seen in photos 2 and 4. This rugged landscape is reported to be the site of an ancient Chinese Village courtyard in the book “The Island of Seven Cities”.  The granite outcrops are highly weathered and with very thin soils combined with lack of ground moisture inhibit tree growth much less agriculture production as reported in the book.
