The lead researcher on the study is satellite archaeology researcher Angela Micol of Maiden, North Carolina.
Micol states, "One site in Upper Egypt, just 12 miles from the city of Abu Sidhum along the Nile, features four mounds each with a larger, triangular-shaped plateau”.
This site contains two larger mounds, about 76 meters (250 feet) in width, and two smaller ones, about 30 meters (100 feet) wide.

The Google Earth Anomalies article "Possible Egyptian Pyramids Found Using Google Earth" provides even more information.
Micol states wihin the article, “The images speak for themselves. It’s very obvious what the sites may contain but field research is needed to verify they are, in fact, pyramids and evidence should be gathered to determine their origins. It is my hunch there is much more to these sites and with the use of Infrared imagery, we can see the extent of the proposed complexes in greater detail.”
And, she adds, "My dream is to work with archaeologists to release sites that I have identified over the past ten years of research. This research is the frontier of discovery and it's just beginning to advance views of our ancient past"
