The guys from The Curse Of Oak Island found another underground cavity. Once again, this was around the Money Pit area, and it hints that there might be more clues about where the mythical treasure might be hidden.
Here is a look at what they found and what it could all mean.
New cavity found on Curse of Oak Island
There is a lot of time to waste for the guys on The Curse of Oak Island right now. However, for treasure hunters, no time spent hunting is wasted. This is especially true when new time comes with new discoveries. In this case, it was a new cavity they found near the Money Pit area.
The team had to stop their excavating plans for now. They had hired a company to come in and dig down to where they found tunnels and caverns that they previously didn’t know about. This gave them the opportunity to finally get underground on the island for the first time. However, the Canadian government put a stop to that for now.
The excavating was considered “mining” and while this had nothing to do with a mining operation, they had to have permits for it to continue working on this part of the island. Until they can cut through the red tape, they instead had to find other parts of the island to explore.
During this time, they ran across something they hadn’t seen before. There is a massive cavity at the bottom of the L-15 borehole. This is near the Money Pit area and is at around 150 feet. This is also by what could end up as an opening to a chamber or a possible tunnel.
As a result, they sent down a sonar detector and found that the cavity is about 30 feet long and just above the bedrock. After talking about it, they decided this couldn’t have formed naturally. It is also the same depth as the Chappell Vault, so this could be a huge find.
The team also broke ground in Lot 5
With the excavation put on hold, the team did have some good news. They finally acquired the elusive Lot 5, which was previously owned by treasure hunter Robert Young. Because Rick and Marty Lagina did not get along with Young, they never had access before. Now they have the right to explore there.
The team also wasted no time. They sent in Gary Drayton, who used his metal detector to find old tools in an area where no building had ever existed before. He also found half of an old coin that was made from copper with arsenical bronze. They believe this was created before the 16th century.
