A strange saucer-shaped object has been dug up by miners during excavation work in Siberia.
Found at a depth of 40 meters in the country's Kuznetsk Basin, the artifact is approximately 1.2 meters in diameter and weighs 200kg.
Its discovery has sparked debate and controversy with some suggesting that it could be thousands of years old.
Miner Boris Glazkov, who was the first to come across the object, stated that it had stood out to him due to its strange shape.
"Iíve never seen anything like this object," he said. "It is a real mystery."
Another of the miners working at the site, Arthur Presnyakov, claimed that a second disc had also been found there but that it had broken in to bits when they had attempted to retrieve it.
"We thought we saw something sure, because it broke into pieces, but then when the second one appeared we stopped work and carefully removed it from the bucket," he said.
