★ Oak Island

138,031.  An incredible hyphothesis based on a fourteenth-century hand-drawn map of Oak island which the late researcher and author Zena Halpern shared with Rick, Marty and the team back in 2016: this map which Zena believed had been made by members of the Knights Templar noted two locations known as the Anchors .. might actually by purposely placed boulders or marker points on a master grid that would lead to the Money Pit treasure vault.  The Curse of Oak Island s8e8: High on the Bog

 

138,032.  Could Erin be right, that the treasure people have been searching for since 1795 is not buried at the bottom of the Money Pit but instead at the end of a corridor or tunnel that extends over 1,000 feet to the west?  ibid.

 

 

138,121.  Rick and geo-scientist Dr Ian Spooner have discovered a massive flat surface composed of stone and measuring some twenty feet wide by seventy feet long while probing the area.  Dr Spooner suggests that it might be connected in some way to the tar pine kiln dating back to the sixteenth century located on Lot 15.  The Curse of Oak Island s8e9, Rock, Paper, Serpents

138,701.  After encountering a frustrating setback with their core-drilling operation in the money pit area last week, Rick and Marty along with Craig Tester have decided to pursue what could be a number of other treasure deposits located near Smith’s cove that were first identified on the Barringer survey more than 30 years ago.  Commissioned in 1988 by Dan Bankenship and his business partner David Tobias, the survey was a military-grade low-frequency radio-wave scanner that denoted possible tunnels a hundred feet deep in and around Smith’s Cove and the eastern perimeter of the Money Pit area, as well as four distinct non-ferrous deposits.  The Curse of Oak Island s8e21: Off the Railing

140,029.  Doctor Spooner will take water samples from over 30 boreholes throughout the area strategically chosen based on last year’s findings.  Then, using cutter-edge mineral analysis the team will be identify not only the area with the highest concentration of silver but also any presence of gold.  ibid.
