Following our brief, but extremely successful, media campaign designed to bring maximum media attention in the shortest time possible onto the issue of the unexplored and uncategorized ruins re-discovered in the jungles of Ecuador we are happy to say it did everything we hoped it would.
We can now announce, with great pleasure, that the strategy brought this matter to the forefront of the attention of the relevant government agencies, the public of Ecuador and the wider international public also. Several major media organizations noticed our articles and we even found the story being shared on the RT News website among others.
After several conversations with our senior contact within the Ministry of Culture we received a direct invitation from the senior personnel of the Ministry of Patrimony to attend a meeting. I can confirm that it was agreed in this meeting that the ruins were of unique importance to the Ecuadorian people and required immediate attention. It appears that no record of this location existed in their database and as such they were extremely grateful for us taking the time to process a full report.
Kindly, as a thank you, the Ministry extended to me inclusion in the official expedition now being planned. This imminent visitation will be partly to assess the site and begin archeological investigation and partly to provide the much needed security for any remaining artifacts.
At this moment the exact date for the first official expedition has not been fixed but due to the reports of thefts from the site now circulating online, this trek will likely happen within the next fortnight at latest. I will be attached as an independent media representative, the only non-government and non-Ecuadorian person being allowed to travel with the group – a great honor for which I am truly grateful. I can say that the staff of the Ministry were very good with us and we found them a pleasure to deal with.
We are so happy to be in a position to report to you that everything will now progress as it should for such an important archeological discovery.
Above is scanned document of a direct account of two adventurers visiting the ruins right back in 1933, this puts an end to any argument over whom might be the discoverer in recent times and we now know the names to credit. More about this document here.
We will keep you informed of all and any progress.
