When analyzing the cores when they came up they found stacked wood which is good evidence that they were drilling through the wall of a shaft. If they can find the tunnel that comes off of the shaft they may be able to pinpoint the location of the original Money Pit shaft.

They also found a bent nail that was analyzed and shows a date consistent with Shaft 6. They analysis of the nail was interesting. They have some nice new methods they are using this year where they can get results quickly.

I am sure they will find out more from the drilling survey in the next episode.
