The Oklo mines' ore was underground and in some locations was bountiful enough to create a critical mass of uranium. Investigators found that the mines contained pockets of highly enriched uranium, which in some places were up to 70% pure.  At first, there were suspicions that a nuclear bomb had been surreptitiously detonated in Africa but this was soon debunked perhaps because it would have been too messy for the French government to explain away.  The scientists quickly found another explanation that sat well with the rest of the scientific community: the nuclear reactor had occurred spontaneously and was also contained spontaneously.  The probabilities of this happening are so low that it boggles the mind.  This was a watershed moment in the study of nuclear energy as no other known natural reactors have been recorded anywhere in the world and should one occur, the chances of such a natural reactor being also naturally contained are frankly infinitesimal. Yet, this hypothesis has been proffered and accepted as a logical explanation for the occurrence in Oklo. Not even the further appearance of other highly improbable conditions have been sufficient to shake this hypothesis from taking root. It is accepted that the ‘accidental’ presence of water seeping through cracks in the rock from the surface occurred in just enough quantity to balance and moderate the reaction. Meaningful Gifts at NOVICA To increase the statistical odds of this phenomenon, the water was sufficiently pure, containing no natural elements that would negatively interact with the uranium to the extent of preventing the reaction. The reaction then just happened to generate enough heat to evaporate the water, which escaped from the reactor in order to ensure that the amount of water remaining in the facility was not excessive so that the intensity of the reaction was sufficiently ameliorated, until the rocks cooled enough for the water to return – and so on – until the reactor reached a state of equilibrium.


Notable Atomic scientists have observed that for uranium to “burn” in a reaction in the way it is believed to have naturally occurred at Oklo, conditions must be distinctly perfect and the water used in the nuclear reaction must be extremely pure.  It should have made a distinct impression on the proponents of this spontaneous fission hypothesis that water pure enough for this purpose does not exist naturally anywhere in the world. However at Oklo, scientific minds are willing to make exceptions and have us believe in multiple, extremely bizarre coincidences. Contrast this with the acceptance of Mayan astronomy tools or the secrets of ancient Egyptian engineering feats which constructed the pyramids (modern tools and equipment have remained incompetent to replicate these highly complex construction projects) and a picture might emerge here. By the way, the rare chain reaction did not happen in just one location but in 15 separate places within the Oklo ore body and was sustained for what is believed to be up to five hundred thousand years, resulting in the depletion of up to ten tons of Uranium ore.  All by chance! As if any of the foregoing was not rare enough of an occurrence, the highly radioactive  plutonium waste generated from the Oklo site has been held in place deep underground by the granite, sandstone, and clays surrounding the site, all remaining within a ten-foot radius of the site where it was first formed almost 2 million years ago. The toxic material remains contained in the sedimentary rocks to this day, preventing it from being dissolved or spread by groundwater. 

This explanation can be likened to a hypothesis that the Three Gorges Dam of China spontaneously occurred or that the great Egyptian famine from 1708 to 1701 BC was spontaneously moderated by a mass irrigation project which just happened to water scores of gigantic desert plantations growing staple crops which just happened to spring up in the area and this chain of events just happened to go on for a long enough time to produce seasonal harvests year after year, the outputs of which just happened to be stored into naturally occurring silos by animals cooperating  instinctively in such a  way that the crops could be distributed to the surrounding populations for many years until the famine ended with no casualties.

The Oklo phenomenon is hailed as an opportunity for scientists to examine the results of an ‘all natural, two billion-year experiment’ and efforts are being made to replicate some of the properties of the natural reactor in other sites.  Meanwhile, the mathematical odds of such a mysterious natural reaction are still being calculated. We look forward to more rigorous research to explain the cause of this mind-boggling engineering phenomenon, because not everyone is buying it.
