Actually, that does not prove that it is not manmade. When,
I was field archaeologist shovel-testing project areas for
Cultural Resource Management survey, I and other "shovel
bums" found that metal, objects are readily distorted and
deformed in all sorts of ways while they lying either on
surface of buried in the ground. Perfectly uniform holes
and other features of manmade objects typically do not
stay "perfectly uniform" for long after they get discarded
as corrosion and other processes erode and mangle metal
The pictures at "Rocks from Space Picture of the Day -
May 8, 2010" ( http://www.rocksfromspace.org/May_8_2010.html
looks an awful lot like the stuff I found all too many
shovel tests, while looking for real archaeological sites.
It would be very instructive for the either the object or
a pictures of it be shown a historical archaeologist, who
has worked in Southwest United States.
