The treasure hunters were informed yesterday that they will be granted the necessary paperwork which will allow them to continue their search. However this licence will only allow them to resume their exploration until 31st December 2010. After this date, the Nova Scotian Department of Natural Resources/Tourism, Culture and Heritage will impose the new Oak Island Act, details of which have yet to be announced.

I know this has been posted to death on this site but my question is not what is in this tomb, but why doesn't there seem to be enough interest generated for the mystery to be solved?
Besides the obvious answers such as loss of life and the water issue, why hasn't an archeological team been sent to the site to resolve this tomb, treasure, mystery once and for all.
There are ways around the water problem such as dams or even capping the hole and forcing air pressure in enough to dig. I just seems this site has been left out in left field while other areas around the world are being excavated. And it already is known there is some sort of historical significance by the treasure already found and pictures taken of bodies entombed close by.
I just don't get why nothing is being done!?!

I heard that the rights to dig there were (or will soon be) revoked. I think i saw that on history channel.
There is something amazing down there.
Of course, if they ever did find anything good down there, we would never know
