Rains said another ex-government employee told him that the plan was for him to be forced out of his property so it could be turned into a live archaeological site where foreign tourists would pay upwards of $1,000 a day to mine the gold and silver believed to be at Aster Ranch. Rains has been told that there are three spacecraft buried on his property. James Cunkle, Director of the White Mountain Archaeological Center, and the purveyor of the famed "Raven Site" which lies between Springerville and St. Johns, wrote a letter on Rains’ behalf.
