met with Pat
Howell at DT's so that he could inspect the Robinson Mine tools
and compare them to the tools he discovered at the tunnel he found at
the Sink Hole Mine in the early 1950s.
He was positive that the tools he found at the Sink Hole Mine were very different from the Robinson Mine tools. Although the size was comparable, the degree of workmanship was better and the material was completely different. The tools he found had sharper well defined edges which were flaked off similar to spear points. Also, the material was a dark gray in color and had conchoidal fracture allowing sharper edges and a well defined point.
