Why couldn't you do it when I asked you for a source to back up your claims this sand came from "elsewhere" which you claimed could only be 100 miles away in the Sinai?
Which neither the Japanese nor French teams claim and the Japanese are deferring to the French whose research found:
"The French team used an instrument which measures differences in gravity to find the internal spaces. They then drilled small holes through the 1.0-metre blocks and found sand -- but not ordinary sand from the nearby desert.
"Laboratory tests showed it came from another part of Egypt and was sifted and enriched with minerals before being placed inside the pyramid by the ancient architects."
I'm pretty sure this was from the copy that originally went out on the wire from Reuters.
As far as I can tell, the whole Sinai thing appears to have been offered as nothing more than a "possibility" for apparently no other reason than it sounded good to an alternative author given it tied into the whole "singing sand" meme to impose these acoustic properties on G1.

Having a large hill to accumulate on would be a good start. The Abu Roash basin has a different geological make up than Giza so I wonder if this is why the sand is different.HERE. MAP
