Here's another update on the Oak Island search -

They've been looking at the surrounding seabed of the island and come up with an interesting find, it seems to be a chest like object but that's just speculation. It certainly looks man made.

Here's some more information -



Close up -

Dave worked together with the new investors of Oak Island from Michigan earlier this year to survey the waters immediately around the mysterious treasure island. What these modelling images reveal are interesting to say the least - angular man made objects on the sea bed - could this be a treasure chest?


The mystery continues.....

It seems like it will cost more money to retrieve the treasure than what it is actually worth. Still, it would be interesting if there is a treasure there and what it is.

You could be right, I think its more about the mystery of what it could be down there rather than just being treasure, maybe thats why so much has gone into this. I cant see someone going to all that trouble just to bury some gold coins, but who knows?

It could be that the person who created the pit was bored.

As I stated before, I don't think pirates would bury his loot in a place that they would be unable to get it out. Many of the pirates were secretly working for small countries (they would help supply ships and crew), and the countries would want their percents of the loot.

If someone has the time and money, I would be interested as to what is down there too.

Another update for those interested -

Looks like some news has come out regarding when they will actually get to dig the site.




The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources and Petroleum Titles (which vets TTL applications) has received the official letter (dated January 6th) from Robert Ogilvy of the Nova Scotia Museum, saying they are satisfied with the archeologist's report regarding the Oak Island Tours Inc. application for a Heritage Research Permit, and that such permit has thus been granted.

All that remains is for the Natural Resources department to submit the TTL application to the NS Cabinet for their consideration, a process which, D'Arcy tells us, normally takes about six weeks.

It looks hopeful that Oak Island Tours Inc will be able to start drilling and/or digging as early as this March or April 2009.

So March/April this year could be interesting, although I bet it will take a long time for news of any findings to get reported. Anyway at least they're still going ahead, what with the credit crunch and all.

The way these things go - if they find nothing you won't hear anything. If they find something you'll hear about almost instantly.

Maybe it's something supernatural, you know, like to keep us from having our simple minds explode with the truth!!!!!!!!!!!

Or maybe there's nothing down there and someone long dead is having a good laugh at all of us digging in some dirty hole he found.

I think, considering the combing that site has gone thru, the latter.

Well still no news on the dig this year.... but found a very interesting article published in the Smithsonian magazine in June, 1988.

To look at a pdf version of the article, click on the link below. Some great pictures included.



Given the fact that the Smithsonian Institute is America's national educational facility with 19 museums, 9 research centers and over 140 affiliate museums around the world, this article is highly regarded.

Going only on memory, I'll helped a friend on a deadline rewrite for an article on Oak Island sometime in the 90s.

Do remember a lot of modern hi-tech equipment involved. They found nothing of value and only minor historical interest. General impression is it's become a con to separate fantasy treasury seekers from their money.

When finished, the project's masters fate was forever. sealed. This was apparently by misfortune, accident, or by self imposed circumstances.

The engineers & workmen must have suffered the same fateful end.




It is very odd that history never recorded anything from the large numbers of workmen that would have to have been required to build this elaborate system on the island. Want to bet those strong-backed workmen were 'buried' along with the treasure?

Those that serve secret enterprises and societies often end up 'disappeared'. These lessons from history should serve as a warning for those that serve dark causes.....

Do you write copy for the packages of video games?

Your rules work in pirate movies and fantasy fiction. But Oak Island is a place in the harsh real world.

Replacing experienced personnel can be expensive and often impossible on sea voyages away from developed communities.

Just to bump this topic some, I'm quoting myself from another thread and adding it to this discussion:

"I've been interested in Oak Island ever since I got my treasure map in a box of Shreddies...far too long ago. I am what's called an 'avocational' archaeologist, which is to say I have some academic training in the subject and have held a licence to conduct limited activity. I just don't get paid...

So about (7) years ago, I was put in contact with another avocational who was all about enthusiasm but wasn't really up on the legalities. Trust me, this can be a frustrating situation. Anyway, he introduced me to an 'intuitive archaeologist'...a recognised psychic if you will. We walked some sites together and truth is I haven't checked out some of the details he came up with, but I am still able to...another story.

My associate and the psychic actually went to Oak Island and talked with the partner who is usually on site. One of the external threads supplied here said no artifacts are known to exist. Not so, as the few links of gold chain were produced at this meeting. The psychic held them, and subsequently associated them with the treasure of the Templars. The way I heard it, the psychic was actually given a link to take along and study further.

The owner of the site, in turn, apparently believes the gold to have a different provenance. He stated that during the Spanish looting of Central and South America, all the treasure went to Havana, where it was catalogued and put aboard the treasure ships to Spain. The story goes that the bureaucrat in charge would skim his cut off the top, and add it to his own hoard. He supposedly buried that in sites up the eastern seaboard, and it remains lost to this day. The Oak Island guy saw this as the source of the loot.

There you are, then. A little more added to the mystery...sorry I can't do names, but you're getting the story some (7) years old, and a couple names I need to keep to myself. I did see Oak Island from the end of the causeway, though, and ate a Lobster Roll at a nearby restaurant...looking at the island. A fine moment."

Quite melodramatic, lol!

I've wondered in the past if the money pit on Oak Island wasn't just a clever distraction far apart from any real treasure's location. You hide the treasure in an innocuous location, then build this elaborate trap/pit that convinces everyone it MUST contain treasure, because after all, who would go to such trouble if it didn't hide a treasure chest?

There was a recent program on the History Channel that hypothesized the Knights Templar built the Money Pit to hide either the Holy Grail or the treasure they had accumulated. It makes me very intrigued to find out what is really down there.

I've heard it may contain the original manuscripts of the works by 'Shakespeare', proving them actually to have been written by Francis Bacon.

This treasure needs to come out!

JohnnyCanuck, I'd love to have a pdf copy of the Capt Kidd Shreddies map ! My original vanished over forty years ago, and I'm still looking for it. I have the original Bluebeard map (one of a set of four in the series), that I'd be happy to have scanned if anyone would like a copy. I'm at: wl.meikle(at)sympatico.ca

Happy to oblige...check your email, and yes, I'd be interested in a scan of the Blackbeard one. Some kids just never grow up, eh?

My Dad took me on a vacation to Oak Island when I was a kid. We jumped on the tour bus and drove across this man made gravel road. It was a great experience. The money pit had some construction fence/snow fence around it and pretty much looks the same now.

The gentleman who owned the island at the time seemed like a really nice fellow. He gave me a map (lost it) and pointed out some sand boxes to dig in... We manged to find a few "Oak Island" coins... I still have those at least.


Anyway, I used to always think Captain Kidd buried his treasure there, as pirates were known to frequent the area.

Anyhow, great memories. Thanks OP. S&F'd.
