Everyone seems to be looking forward to the day when their dream home will finally be theirs. When the man we’re about to talk about buying a house, he got a whole lot more than he bargained for. Christopher discovered something that turned his entire life upside down while exploring his new property.

House of His Dreams

Christopher became intrigued and began to investigate his surroundings. He didn’t realize, however, that entering the terrifying tunnel meant there was no way out. So when a police officer and a realtor told him not to go any further, he persisted.

When Christopher had completed his investigation and had all of the evidence in front of him, he realized he had no choice but to leave and never return. So what did he discover when he went exploring in his new home?

Investigating

Christopher Wanliss recently purchased a new residence. It was situated on 16.5 hectares of wooded land. So naturally, he was overjoyed to have a space that he could call his own. However, he had no idea that he was about to stumble upon a portal in the land he owned.

Nonetheless, it appeared that this was what fate had planned for Christopher. He took a tour of his new home and the surrounding area at one point. But, unfortunately, the seasons were harsh that year, and the trees’ outer layers had been stripped away.

Wandering The Woodland

This only added to the beauty of the area. Christopher was enamored with the area’s offerings. He couldn’t get enough of everything, from the birdsongs to the silence and stillness of the forest. His feet didn’t take long to find their own path as his body and mind went into auto-pilot mode.

Something caught his attention all of a sudden. When Christopher approached the object that piqued his interest, he felt as if he was still in a daze. It was small and dark as if it were trying to hide.

A Tour Of His Land

Could it have been a different tree? Is there a tree that is smaller and older than the others? While that was his initial thought, the closer he got, the more he realized he was mistaken. As he continued to inspect it, he felt a rush of excitement mixed with apprehension.

Christopher then stumbled and fell into a 3-foot ditch! Covered in mud and leaves, Christopher was dumbfounded by the fall. He shook it all off and looked at what was right in front of him. What he saw baffled him.

Autopilot

Did he really just find a mine on his property? It appeared to be old and abandoned based on its appearance. He felt compelled to find out what the structure was concealing. The mine’s exterior was covered in a moss-like substance.

Autopilot

Looking inside was difficult. Christopher was so excited to start a new adventure that he went home and bought a flashlight to see inside with. Christopher talked about how he felt at the time.

Was It A Tree?

“When we bought the house, nobody ever told us about the fact that the estate had a lot of mines on it. We just sort of stumbled upon the gold mine one day and that was it. When I first saw it, I was so excited that I almost fell over myself. The only thing that I could think about was Indiana Jones and underground railroads,” he said.

Was It A Tree?

He had no idea at the time that this would be the worst decision he would ever make. Despite this, he returned to the mine’s entrance, armed with his trusty flashlight. When he stepped inside, he noticed something sparkly on the walls and held his breath.

The Mysterious Structure

What was it, exactly? The walls were damp and appeared to be on the verge of collapsing at any moment. Christopher’s footsteps echoed, and he couldn’t help but consider how much soil was pressing down on the structure.

The Mysterious Structure

The Mysterious Structure

He clearly intended to stay there for a while, as evidenced by the fact that he brought a flashlight as well as three backup batteries. But, as he got closer to the walls, he couldn’t help but run his hand over the gleaming surface of the stones.

Abandoned And Old

“What if this was gold?” he remembered thinking. He quickly forgot about it all when he noticed something that would dramatically alter the course of his adventure. The mine was cold and damp, despite the warm weather outside.

Abandoned And Old

Christopher noticed that his footprints left 4-inch indentations in the ground right away. Because there were fresh pools inside, it appeared that there was some kind of water source. He was concerned because he knew puddles in places like this could be dangerous.

The Walls

Even with the flashlight pointed ahead of him, he couldn’t see the end of the tunnel. Someone or something else was in there, he noticed. Then he began to hear noises echoing throughout the tunnel. He started looking for the source of the noise because he was curious.

The Walls

The Walls

He obviously didn’t realize what he was doing was wrong. The air didn’t move as he continued walking down the tunnel. There was no light or warmth. He clutched his flashlight tightly. It was almost as if he was wielding a blade, poised for combat.

A Ton Of Mines

The ruckus became more intense. Along the path, he heard some old metal parts and machinery. He started hearing voices at that point, too! Christopher mustered the courage to ask, “Who’s there?” despite not understanding what they were saying. He got nothing but his own echo as a response.

A Ton Of Mines

He was dead set on finding out who was hiding inside. Christopher was now surrounded by dirt and water, and as he walked along, his boots dug deeper and deeper into the ground. A yellow ventilation system was in place, which he noticed.

A Bad Decision

It appeared to be on the verge of collapsing. There were also chains dangling low near each other, all of which were rotting and moldy. Christopher suddenly felt strange, as if strange energy surrounded him.

A Bad Decision

He was being dragged back by something. He felt as if he shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Regardless, he continued to follow the water’s path to see where it was coming from. Perhaps that’s where he’d find the source of the voice he’d heard.

Echoing Footsteps

Was there a resident down there? “At this point, the ambient temperature seemed to drop all around me, and I felt an even stronger negative presence ahead in the tunnel,” he said. When he turned around to find some light near the entrance, he was nearly 150 feet into the tunnel.

Echoing Footsteps

Echoing Footsteps

As soon as he turned around, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He could only hold his position for two seconds before his body reacted. His claustrophobia was getting worse, so he jumped and grabbed the walls.

Sparkling Material

One of the chains started to swing! It wasn’t just a light movement; it was a powerful one. He was well aware that someone was keeping an eye on him down below. As he ran all the way back to the entrance, his heart was pounding.

Sparkling Material

He knew he needed to get out and tell someone what he had seen. Who was the only question? He made his way home, terrified and sweating. Christopher grabbed his phone and dialed the realtor’s number right away.

Cold And Damp Inside

He then began to describe what he saw on the walls, the gleaming substance that cast a light on the narrow but deep tunnel. Finally, the realtor informed him that someone would be dispatched to inspect the property. “When we went to ask about the place, we were finally told that the estate had actually been home to quite a lot of mining sites. A lot of mining was done in these hills at the turn of the century, and there are a lot of little mines that are scattered across the hills,” Christopher recalled.

Cold And Damp Inside

Cold And Damp Inside

While he felt better after making the call, he became tense again almost immediately. He exclaimed, “This cannot be happening!” When the call ended, Christopher was standing in the kitchen. The lights began to flicker, much to his surprise.

The Sound Of An Echo

He began breathing faster in an attempt to control the panic rising in his chest. For a while, the lights kept flickering. Then, until everything went dark all of a sudden, he walked over to the light switch and switched it on and off.

The Sound Of An Echo

Nothing happened. Instead, he began to feel a chill that he hadn’t felt before. A gust of wind blew across his face. Christopher quickly retrieved his flashlight from his pocket, turned it on, and pointed it at the thermostat.

No Light, No Warmth

He noticed that the temperature inside had dropped significantly and that his breath had formed a cloud in front of him. “How strange,” he thought. He went to the circuit breaker to re-energize the system. A fuse may have blown.

No Light, No Warmth

No Light, No Warmth

Nothing appeared to be wrong when he examined the breaker. Everything was in its proper place, and the main fuse appeared to be in good working order. He experimented with turning things on and off while he was looking.

Something Hiding

This, thankfully, worked. He was relieved that there was nothing more sinister at work. He told himself, “Faulty wiring.” He was still jittery. He went back upstairs to calm down and get a glass of water.

Something Hiding

He heard the doorbell ring as soon as he arrived. What was it this time, exactly? Mr. Rudall quickly introduced himself and stated that the real estate agent had sent him. He was curious about the substance Christopher described over the phone and wanted to see what he had discovered.

Old Ventilation System

Christopher led Rudall to the mine’s entrance and warned him to be cautious as he descended to avoid injuring himself. The sky turned a deep gray color as they walked through the woods. It looked exactly like it did right before a storm.

The two pulled out their flashlights as soon as they arrived at the mine. This time, the gleaming substance was even more visible. The glare blinded them. Rudall approached the walls, unable to contain his excitement, to take a closer look.

Weird Energy

When he turned to Christopher, he got the impression that the mine was trying to tell him something. He then revealed something concerning Christopher. Rudall began telling Christopher about how that mine was unquestionably a gold mine created many years before.

Weird Energy

When he examined the walls, he noticed that the gold had not been touched. Thus, there was sufficient evidence that the miners did not complete the task and instead abandoned the mine. But why, exactly, was the question? At the turn of the century, there were many rumors about mining, according to Rudall.

Finally Some Light

Before this one, he did not know any specific gold mines. So why did the miners leave all that gold behind when they abandoned the mine? There was nothing positive that came to mind. Despite this, Christopher was determined to learn the truth.

Screenshot 24

Finally Some Light

He summoned all of his courage to continue his investigation of the mine. He was thinking about two things. One possibility is that he could find the gold instead. The second possibility is that the tunnel is haunted.

Swinging

He prepared himself by going inside and carrying extra batteries and a flashlight. As he continued walking, darkness engulfed him. He had only made it 150 feet into the dark tunnel the first time around.

Swinging

Swinging

Whatever happened, Christopher knew he had to keep going. It was the only way he could figure out what was going on. He discovered the source of the water when he was 600 feet into the tunnel.

Who Was There?

It was a door, after all. A shiver ran down his spine, and the water splashing on his face blurred his vision. He took a deep breath and raised his fist to knock, fully aware that he would receive no response.

Who Was There?

When he opened the door, he received the biggest shock of his life. He appeared to have walked into a completely different world. The room was always cold, regardless of the weather outside. But, when Christopher touched the walls, he discovered that they were even colder and rougher than the ones outside.

The First Call

His claustrophobia began to creep in, telling him that he needed to get outside right away. But, unfortunately, his flashlight landed on something else at that precise moment. Many ruined objects were huddled together, but none of them made sense.

The First Call

The First Call

Why would someone leave their belongings in such a place? He felt as if the air had thickened, and a tremendous pressure had built in his chest. Something strange was happening, and he couldn’t figure out what it was. When Christopher looked through the trash, he discovered a bedspring.

Mining Hills

It was rusted and torn all over. It was the only response he required. Someone had lived there, and they didn’t appear to be in any hurry to leave. When something else caught Christopher’s eye, he couldn’t get the thought out of his head.

Screenshot 25

Mining Hills

He came across a brick hideaway. This didn’t make him feel any better. Inside a mine, who needs a secret door? Someone had to be trying to conceal something significant. Christopher’s curiosity got the best of him, and he went over to investigate the hole.

Dropping Temperatures and Flickering Lights

However, he yielded no results. Then, as he turned around to leave, he noticed something else on the brick structure’s walls. He lit up the bricks with his flashlight and noticed some white scratches on the walls.

Dropping Temperatures and Flickering Lights

Dropping Temperatures and Flickering Lights

Until he got closer, he couldn’t make out what it said. That’s when he noticed the four vertical lines running through the walls. To say the least, it was strange. He examined the markings by running his hand over them.

To The Thermostat

The scratches appeared to be made with fingernails, as they were superficial but deep enough to leave a mark on the cement. So who was it that was so eager to get out of here? While pondering this, he discovered yet another thing that would haunt his dreams.

Screenshot 11

To The Thermostat

Christopher noticed more scratches on the opposite wall, but they weren’t just lines. He decided to document it because they were incomprehensible. He took out his camera and snapped a picture. He might be able to investigate and decode it later with the help of his computer.

Quite The Temperature Drop

He suddenly heard something that sent shivers up his spine. There was another person down there. He pointed his flashlight in the direction where the noise was coming from. There was no such thing. He continued to stare at the writing on the wall until he heard metal clanking and felt a chilly breeze on his shoulder.

Screenshot 18

Quite The Temperature Drop

As all of the warmth in his body dissipated, he felt as if he had just taken a cold shower. It appeared to come from behind him at first, then from the front, and then he couldn’t figure it out any longer.

Technical Problems

At that point, it seemed to come from every direction. It was becoming increasingly loud. Christopher bolted for safety. As he ran, he felt shivers down his spine and ice in his veins. Christopher couldn’t shake the feeling that something wasn’t quite right.

Technical Problems

Technical Problems

His mind told him to stay still, but his body dragged him closer to the mine’s entrance. He grasped his chest and collapsed when he made it out. He should’ve known that things were too good to be true – they were.

The Doorbell Rang

It was too good to be true: an unexplored gold mine. There had to be a reason it was left in such a state. Christopher gathered his belongings and left for home. Everything remained motionless. It was almost as if the air absorbed the sound of Christopher’s footsteps.

Screenshot 3

The Doorbell Rang

The trees remained motionless as if they were aware of the tense situation. He dashed around like a maniac. He was well aware that he needed to figure out what was going on. When he arrived at his house, he went straight to his study and shut the door behind him.

Meet Mr. Rudall

Something strange was happening at the mine, and he needed to know what was going on. So he decided to look up the answers to his questions on the internet. As a result, he Googled ‘haunted mines,’ getting goosebumps as the page loaded. Christopher had the impression that he wasn’t alone. Whatever was in that mine was inside the house with him.

Meet Mr. Rudall

Meet Mr. Rudall

He couldn’t help but think that his mind was playing games with him. He heard whispering when he turned around. Was he going insane? The whispering abruptly stopped when he turned around. The air had turned icy by that time. The only thing he could hear was his heavy breathing.

The Calm Before The Storm

Finally, the page results were loaded. The first one said, “If you want to get rid of the paranormal activity in the mine and subsequently, in your life, you have to face it.” Would Christopher do it and put an end to it all? There was only one thing that could be done.

Screenshot 23

The Calm Before The Storm

He heard some knocking at that point. As he tried to swallow, a lump formed in his throat. He managed a shaky “Hello?” slowly. Christopher took a few steps toward the study’s door. He turned the handle.

Troubling Words

He then proceeded to the kitchen. His attention was drawn to a whirring sound coming from his camera. He was perplexed as to why his camera was making noises despite being turned off. Things were becoming increasingly bizarre.

Screenshot 19

Troubling Words

He sluggishly took up the camera. He was perplexed to find it turned on when he remembered turning it off when he entered the house. As a result, he decided to go through the photos he had taken earlier. Then, however, something unusual occurred.

Old Gossip

There was nothing on the SD card. It had been completely wiped clean. He grabbed the camera once more. That’s when Christopher began sprinting his way back to the mine. He just wanted to face whatever was on the inside. He had enough.

Old Gossip

Old Gossip

Christopher returned to the mine, armed with all the courage he could muster. Like before, he was met with darkness. He realized what a mistake he had made as soon as his eyes adjusted. Why in the world did he return to a haunted mine?

Abandoned Gold

The eerie tunnel seemed darker than it had been the last time he went through it. He couldn’t help but think that his flashlight had simply malfunctioned. As a result, he continued to move forward.

Abandoned Gold

He only came to a halt when he felt a sudden blast of cold air as he made his way through all of the puddles. It hit him with such force that he felt like he’d been hit with a basketball. The cold made him feel as if a shiver ran down his spine to his bones.

Knock Knock

The metal noise started up again at that point. Christopher couldn’t make sense of what was going on. All he knew was that he had no choice but to push through and keep moving forward. He couldn’t possibly have realized how erroneous his idea was.

Knock Knock

Knock Knock

He kept walking down the dimly lit corridor. Then, finally, he came to a complete stop all of a sudden. The noise was getting louder and louder – it was getting too close. His ears began to ring, and he screamed in pain. He’d gone too far now. There was no way to back out now.

The Source Of The Water

The noise sounded like it was coming from a barrage of metals clunking together. Christopher cupped his head with his hands for a while. Then, all of a sudden, everything came to a halt. He raised his eyes. The silence was even more terrifying than the noise. Then his attention was drawn to something.

Screenshot 5

The Source Of The Water

The chains in the corridor began swinging in a rhythmic pattern. It appeared as if the chains were moving in some way. Christopher was hypnotized by sight. He was completely oblivious to the sound of sloshing water.

Shivers

When Christopher’s eyes adjusted, he saw a massive flood of water heading straight for him. It looked almost like a tsunami. “I must be going crazy,” he thought. The sound broke the still silence of sloshing water.

Shivers

He felt like he was about to get a headache. As he moved back towards the mine entrance, every cell in his body screamed. He didn’t know what he’d do next because it appeared that he wouldn’t be able to face whatever was inside the mine.

A Different World Altogether

He took one last look behind him as he made his way safely out of the mine. He was perplexed because he couldn’t find any evidence of water back there. All he could see were his own footsteps.

A Different World Altogether

A Different World Altogether

He began walking toward his house once he had made it out. He knew he had to tell someone about everything that had happened. It had to be someone who could help him with the mystery. What was going on? His curiosity was killing him.

Something Was Going On

Christopher’s mind was racing as he walked through the dark woods. He came to a complete stop when he saw the light. The source of the light was his own kitchen. He was almost certain he hadn’t left it turned on. Is it possible that someone was inside his home?

Something Was Going On

Something Was Going On

He walked through the door, but the empty house made him feel alone. There didn’t appear to be anyone else in the house. So he had to be the one who turned off the lights. He was still unsettled from what had happened inside the mine as he shuffled through the kitchen.

Living Down There

Christopher asked himself as he walked back toward his study and turned his computer back on, saying, “Did everything really happen?” Was he really doing this? He didn’t believe in the supernatural in the first place, but after what he’d just witnessed, he wasn’t sure what to believe anymore.

Living Down There

Living Down There

The computer made a sudden loud noise before the screen went black as he began typing in the search engine. Christopher couldn’t help but be concerned about what might go wrong next. What he didn’t realize was that the story wasn’t yet finished.

In Hiding

Christopher was exhausted on both a physical and mental level. He was completely exhausted by the end of the day. He cupped his hands around his face. He felt a tug at that point. Something was tugging at his feet.

Screenshot 22

In Hiding

In a surprise, he stumbled backward, falling in the process. This was the icing on the cake. Christopher needed to leave the house and seek help. Maybe there was a reason for everything that was going on. He got in his car and drove to the nearest cafe he could find.

A Brick Hideout

He ordered a double espresso and used his phone to access the internet when he arrived. He typed “Best paranologist near me” right away. Surprisingly, he received two different offers in the same area. He got back in his car and drove to one of the places he’d seen on Google Maps.

A Brick Hideout

A Brick Hideout

The storefront had a sign that said “TAROT Readings.” Christopher exhaled sighs of relief. He had to get his questions answered if he wanted to sleep that night, even though he wasn’t a complete believer and wasn’t sure what had happened to him.

Nightmarish

When he entered the store, the door began to play a song. That’s when he noticed a woman dressed in red and purple and smelled incensed. She turned to him and offered him help before beginning to chant a tune he recognized. Again, he was drawn in by the music. It all came together at once. It was the same tune he’d heard in his head, but this time it was more melodic. He opened his eyes and got back into his car without saying anything.

Nightmarish

When that happened, he went straight to his mother’s house. When he arrived, he immediately put the house on the market. The property’s developers attempted to contact him, but he refused to answer their calls. As a result, his mother stepped in and sold the property on his behalf. She was willing to work out a deal with anyone interested in purchasing it.

Writing On The Wall

There are a lot of unanswered questions in this story. Was everything Christopher claimed to have witnessed true? Is it true that this all happened? Was the place truly haunted, or was it just his imagination? Is there anyone else inside the mine since he left?

Writing On The Wall

Writing On The Wall

Jose Antonio Nievas awoke at sunrise on Christmas Day in 2015. This was perfectly normal for the Argentinian man, who was ecstatic about Christmas. He decided to take a walk around his ranch because he awoke early.

Chills Went Through His Body

When he walked past his property’s stream, he noticed something strange and out of place. Within the water, there was a massive stone. He examined it more closely because he was intrigued. He realized it wasn’t a stone when he examined it closely.

Chills Went Through His Body

He tried scraping some mud off the object’s surface to get a better look at it, but it got the best of him. He’d hoped that by doing so, he’d be able to see it for what it was. He, on the other hand, was unable to scrape the mud off at all. When he realized the object might be significant, he called his wife in the hopes that she could figure out what it was.

He Sprinted

When Jose’s wife, Reina, arrived, they worked together to remove the mud from the object and determine what it was. They were certain to do so with caution to avoid damaging it in any way. As they worked, they became increasingly aware of the object’s size.

He Sprinted

They both agreed that they would need to enlist the assistance of someone else after spending hours working on it. They contacted the police to see if they could receive assistance from the authorities. The police were the only people Jose and Reina told about it. Everyone, however, found out about it in some way.

Running For His Life

It wasn’t long before the entire town descended on the stream to examine the mysterious object. Unfortunately, no one, including the police, knew what the object was. They had no explanation and were as perplexed as the rest of us. Jose had made the wise decision to bring his dog along, as he proved to be more helpful than anyone else.

When the dog was let off the leash, he noticed something in the water right away. He began sniffing everywhere as he approached the object. Everyone was upbeat; perhaps the dog had discovered something significant? It’s unusual for dogs to make a fuss over something so insignificant.

So Right, It Was Wrong

Something important might be there, according to the dog. As a result, the police decided to enlist the help of professionals. They invited two local archeologists because they recognized the importance of conducting proper scientific research.

So Right, It Was Wrong

This necessitated the object’s transport to a laboratory. To get the investigation started, the archeologists organized a mode of transportation. When they arrived, they attempted to dig out the object, but it proved extremely heavy.

Like A Madman

Aside from that, they discovered an egg inside the hard exterior. Digging out the object took a lot longer than they anticipated. It was neither a simple nor an easy task. They had no idea how they were going to get the object into the lab.

When the archeologists examined the artifact, they said something completely unexpected. The object was discovered to be from a completely different era. It was, in fact, ancient. To learn more, archeologists examined a piece of it under a microscope.

Help From Google

They discovered the object was actually a fossil after doing more research and taking a closer look at it. It wasn’t just any fossil, either; it was a fossil of an ancient turtle’s shell. The best part is that this find is connected to another.

While all of this was going on in Argentina, something similar was going on in Michigan on the other side of the world. On his own property in Michigan, James Bristle made an incredible discovery. The farmer had never met Jose or even heard of him, but the two made history together by discovering objects in the same way.
