    Probably data errors in the photos.

    However, Area 51 is built on top of a silver mine so the whole area has tunnels underneath and there are lots of ventilation shafts. The "holes" might even be tailings ponds from the mining operation.

    Area 51 was also used for nuclear bomb tests.

    Those are other Area's with numbers. Those holes in the ground were caused by Nuclear Bombs. That is where the United States tested nuclear weapons over 30 years ago.

    They no longer do above ground testing or for that mater below ground testing.

    If you mean significantly south and a little west, that's part of the Naval Proving Grounds - a missile & bomb range.

    That's where they're building Area 52.
