Oak Island – Old Pickax?

Season 9 of The Curse of Oak Island continues to be exciting.

In the episode tonight they showed more items removed from the latest large can using the hammer grab tool. They are getting down to the depths of interest.

What they believe is an old pickax head was brought up from the depths. They believe that it may date back to the deposition of the treasure in the money pit, and that it is not searcher related.

However, since it came at the end of the episode it has not undergone testing, or even cleaning. I am sure the next episode will contain some information about it.

They also showed some scanning that was being carried out in the waters around Oak Island. They were towing a magnetometer and mapping out anomalies. It looked like they found quite a few to explore and they were talking about future dives.

They also showed diving on some of the targets from the magnetometer survey with again some excitement.

What did they find? How exciting will it be next week?
