The sixth season of The Curse of Oak Island left us with a huge cliffhanger, as the team receives the results of the seismic survey of the mysterious swamp area.
After setting 2,025 dynamite charges and 4,000 geophones, Eagle Canada’s team finally compiles the results of their seismic survey and is ready to present them to the treasure hunters. Alex Gauthier claims that on the scale from one to ten, his excitement about the result s is 11 and Lagina Brothers and their team can’t wait to see what has been discovered under the swamp.
The first thing they found is a tunnel under the highland next to the swamp, described as a stairwell to the basement. The second anomaly is even more intriguing. It represents an underground passageway connecting the highland to the Money Pit. But the last anomaly, found under the swamp is the greatest revelation. It is about 200 feet long and 40 feet wide on one end and 25 feet wide on the other. Based on its size and shape, there is little doubt in everyone’s mind that they are looking at the remnants of a ship buried underground.
It confirms the old theory Frank Nolan proposed, after finding pieces of ship’s mast nearby. Nolan claimed that Oak Island was, in fact, two islands, separated by a shallow channel and that a treasure galleon could have been sailed between the islands, before two dams are built on each end of the channel, creating the area we know today as the swamp. The ship, together with its mysterious cargo, remained on the bottom, but we will have to wait for the next season to see if the team has finally stumbled upon the treasure of Oak Island.
