The Konocti Project, Inc., a non profit organization devoted to the “preservation, exploration and protection of Mt. Konocti” was created in the 1990's by Bob Zalusky, a World War II Flying Tigers veteran and ex-airline pilot in conjunction with Norman J. Lehrman, chief geologist for Homestake Mining Co.
The group believed the center of the mountain contained a huge cavern; one or more vent holes extended from the top of the mountain down into the center. Another tube extended from the cavern into the lake, allowing water from Clear Lake to flow in and create an interior lake.
The Konocti Project group assembled a crew of interested scientists and residents, to search for the location of the cave near Wright’s Peak. CLERC has obtained a film produced by The Konocti Project group that summarizes the findings from their search, which lasted from 1990-1999. The film is roughly 50 minutes long.
