    Miners symbol, maybe?

    Recently visited a local landmark that is now owned by a mining company.
    Found this marking on a rock in the middle of a river.
    Is it a symbol that means anything to anyone?

    Just a guess but maybe a geologist's marker for a test drilling?

    Close, it is juts a simple survey marker.
    The surveyor marks the "spot" from which survey readings are taken, there can be no mistakes when there is a physical marker if they need to go back and check any readings

    And so, for them - presumably the miners - a sure sign of imminent milk and honey.
    (Editor's note: not a few beekeepers - and some of renown - augment their daily bread in this locality.)
