DATELINE: Oak Island Trifecta
If you thought Gary Drayton changed the show since he came into his own, he made yet again another major discovery—as big as his Templar Cross of three years earlier. Curse of Oak Island is on the verge of a treasure trove of winning: a trifecta.
His insights, his luck, and his attitude, makes him a compelling figure. Gary went a long way to make Oak Island’s series the so-called #1 show on cable.
It is Gary who finds “bloody silver,” what the treasure hunters have always wanted: the most brazen evidence yet.
Three sites simultaneous digs meant to receive permits and going into the swamp foremost to dredge out water to show a 1200 AD structure.
They also now seem to have found the original Money Pit that was flooded first in 1805. That was not a factor in the 21stcentury where there is an arrogance that the flood tunnels can be shut off.
What this all means is that there could be three treasures on Oak island. It gels with the theories that different people, at different times, came to the island to do major excavation to hide mysterious historical treasures.
Metallurgist Dr. Christa Brousseau tells them that the tag is not silver, but it is impure lead. It was deliberately created possibly a thousand years ago.
Over in the swamp Dr. Ian Spooner is back, which is a sign that he is on hand for anticipation of something big.
Fred Nolan’s son believes they are looking at vindication of the surveyor’s lifelong hope.
Another metallurgist reveals in the War Room that this tag of impure lead is from an area well-known to the Knights Templar and may even be of similar origin.
The big payoff may be, however, undermined by Hurricane Dorian that is on the horizon.
