The Curse of Oak Island Season Finale

I had been looking forward to the season finale of The Curse of Oak Island. However, I was a bit disappointed. I really thought that they were holding onto a sensational discovery that would definitely reveal more of the mystery.

Curse of Oak Island, History Channel, Did they find anything?They did show a couple of discoveries though. Oak Island, Money Pit, National Geographic, Curse of Oak Island

First, they had definite evidence of a void in the Money Pit area but felt it was too dangerous to continue going deeper. Related to this they found a modern coin way below ground. This coin had been intentionally dropped in an earlier bole hole several years ago and had migrated a significant distance over time. This showed that the subterranean area is very unstable.

Near the end of the show they also talked about possible projects for the future. It looks like more work will be done in the swamp and maybe what is known as “The Big Dig” where they would undergo a major excavation in the Money Pit area instead of just digging bore holes.

From what was said, it looks like The Curse of Oak Island will continue for at least another season.

The finale ended with a tribute to one of the long time searchers, Dan Blankenship.

It will be interesting to see how the pandemic will affect the exploration at Oak Island. This is the time of year when they would be getting started again.

Will they ever find any treasure?
