I found an article on mining and metallurgy in ancient America, mostly in NW South America. I have heard some object to the Book of Mormon on grounds that there has been no evidence of a metal working culture in American archaeology. Apparently I'm missing something. Isn't gold a metal? And didn't the Spanish conquistadors take mountains of gold back to the Old World even to the point of causing a great inflation? Undoubtedly I just don't understand the objection being made. To be honest, I haven't made a study of it, apologetics not being one of my strong interests.

Question: Do we yet know where Lehi landed in the Americas, and where the earliest Lehite colonies were? Is it still generally thought that he landed on the coast of modern Chile, or was that ever a popular theory?
