Season 9 of The Curse of Oak Island is well underway.
In the episode tonight they brought some big gear onto the island.
However, first thehe Money Pit area had to be leveled and stabilized.
The drilling survey continued in the Money Pit area and they are now looking to pinpoint the flood tunnel. This will help determine exactly where to sink the new larger shafts. It does look like they possibly found the flood tunnel so this may have them changing some of there target locations.
Some more metal detecting was shown, and they found a coin very close to where the lead bag seal was found last year. They continue to say that the seal may be Templar related but with very little supporting evidence.
The digging in the swamp is drawing to an end as they need to refill the swamp to use the water for the wash plant. However they were able to find some more worked wood that was carbon 14 tested. The date returned was very, very old at 1,700 to 1,800 years old.
The preview for next week looks very interesting as they show the arrival of the oscillator that will sink the large cans for the shafts. They will also finally share some information about the lead bag seal. It will be interesting to see how it is presented, and how close it follows some of the research that has been done by fans of the show. From the preview, I am not so sure.
