Monuments

There is a limited variety of materials that can be legally used as monuments. Advanced Geologic offers a selection to suit all individual needs and requirements. Monuments that will withstand environmental conditions from desert sun and wind to alpine snow and rain. Deluxe monuments that deter the most determined vandals are a specialty of Advanced Geologic Exploration.

Standard Monuments consist of 2" x 2" x 4' wooden posts secured within a mound of stone that is painted red. Location Certificates are placed in plastic bottles, also painted red, which are secured to the post. Corner monuments are labeled with an aluminum tag affixed to the post and inscribed with the corner information.

Standard Discovery Monument

Metal Monuments consist of 2" x 2" x 5' metal posts secured within a mound of stone that is painted red.
