Scientology Bunker in New Mexico – Trementina Base

A Place in the Desert for New Mexico’s Most Exclusive Circles

From the state that gave us Roswell, the epicenter of UFO lore since 1947, comes a report from an Albuquerque TV station about its discovery of strange landscape markings in the remote desert. They’re etched in New Mexico’s barren northern reaches, resemble crop circles and are recognizable only from a high altitude.

Also, they are directly connected to the Church of Scientology.

The church tried to persuade station KRQE not to air its report last week about the aerial signposts marking a Scientology compound that includes a huge vault “built into a mountainside,” the station said on its Web site. The tunnel was constructed to protect the works of L. Ron Hubbard, the late science-fiction writer who founded the church in the 1950s.

The archiving project, which the church has acknowledged, includes engraving Hubbard’s writings on stainless steel tablets and encasing them in titanium capsules. It is overseen by a Scientology corporation called the Church of Spiritual Technology. Based in Los Angeles, the corporation dispatched an official named Jane McNairn and an attorney to visit the TV station in an effort to squelch the story, KRQE news director Michelle Donaldson said.

The church offered a tour of the underground facility if KRQE would kill the piece, the station said in its newscast. Scientology also called KRQE’s owner, Emmis Communications, and “sought the help of a powerful New Mexican lawmaker” to lobby against airing the piece, the station reported on its Web site.

Trementina Base

According to the CST, the purpose of the base is to provide storage space for an archiving project to preserve L. Ron Hubbard’s writings, films and recordings for future generations. Hubbard’s texts have been engraved on stainless steel tablets and encased in titanium capsules underground. The project began in the late 1980s.

The base includes a number of dwellings and the archives themselves, the latter in a network of underground tunnels. The base also has its own private, concrete airstrip, the San Miguel Ranch Airport (NM53); it is not shown on FAA sectional charts or in navigation databases by the owner’s request.

  2. scientology hates and will go after any reporter or press it can’t control. You can see video’s of this at
    I would like to know just who the lawmaker was that tried to stop free press. All in all why anyone would want to save the writings of Hubbard is confusing. So many of his old books are doing fine holding up coffee table corners that they are not going to disapare anytime soon.

  3. Sorry to see you have bought into what is obviously an Illuminati ploy. The Washington Post is a secret society stronghold. Funny they’d try to discredit the Church of Spiritual Technology and the Church of Scientology. I like most of your posts, but was pretty disappointed you got duped on this one.

  4. dude i need more explanition i kina belive anyomous not u
