The Curse of Oak Island Season 9 Episode 8 Recap
In the eighth episode, titled ‘Deeper Digs, Bigger Stakes,’ the team started digging in borehole DE 1.5. They didn’t find anything of value, so they moved on to borehole G2. It might have been within Shaft 6, possibly situated 18 feet from the Money Pit. After a bit of digging, they found mud along with a nail that contained a portion of manganese. The team then moved on to the hatch on Zena’s map but began to search in areas not implied by the map.
There, they found a chunk of lead and a metal strap. According to Carmen Ledge, the strap was from a chest from the 1600s. In the swamp, they subsequently unearthed a wood plank and some cut timbers. There could have been gold mixed in it, although they didn’t take it as seriously. The Laginas were not as satisfied with the findings for the day. However, the proximity of Shaft 6 with the Money Pit has convinced them to keep looking for the coveted treasure!
