The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11 Episode 9: A Quick Recap!
This season has been the most fruitful on The Curse Of Oak Island so far. After delving deeper into the Money Pit, the Lagina brothers have found several hidden artifacts and evidence that could help them get closer to the legendary treasure. Despite receiving good news, the team encountered another obstacle. Back to The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11 Episode 8, the Garden Shaft met problems after the massive flood drowned the tunnel. Before this catastrophic event, Marty and Rick Lagina were informed about the Garden Shaft by Roger Fortin, Dumas Mining Ltd. He informed them about the miner’s progress and ensured they could reach the bottom of the tunnel soon.
Unfortunately, an unprecedented hurricane reached Nova Scotia and Oak Island, submerging the Garden Shaft. It further created havoc there. Because of this havoc, the shaft depth increased, and now it is 87 feet deep, which was roughly 82 feet initially. Although Roger was confident that his team could fight against the storm, they faced a grim fate. The expanding foam appeared useless, and the Garden Shaft was soon submerged in 30 feet of water. But it left everyone surprised by the origin of such a massive amount of water.
If you remember, the shaft was “bone dry” just a year ago! Thus, it stood uncertain how such a huge amount of water could have appeared from nowhere. But just then, the Onslow Company discovered that it could be one of the old booby traps – famous as flood tunnels. In the 19th century, it was used to protect important artifacts. And it was believed that the team had encountered one of the booby traps.
Although it was frustrating to learn that their efforts were gone in vain, they had discovered something more about the Garden Shaft. Perhaps the Laginas team had accidently dug the flood tunnels at a depth of 90 feet. Unfortunately, it put a hold on their excavation project. Even Dumas’s team didn’t know how long it would take to restart their investigation because of the undetermined water source. Later, Dr. Ian Spooner, along with Drs. Fred Michel and Matt Lukeman joined the War Room
While the team still reeled over this sudden appearance of water, the experts suggested broadening their study. They had been working on finding the evidence of gold and silver in the Money Pit. However, the team now believes they should also focus on organic materials like wood. This was because it could help them figure out more about the treasure.
The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11 Episode 9: Had They Solved The Mishap?
No doubt, the Lagina team had met with a setback after the outburst of water in the Garden Shaft. Now, the tunnel stood 87 feet, which was once 82 feet deep. However, The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11 Episode 9, “Filling The Cavities,” hinted that these flood tunnels were a massive discovery by the team. It also proved to be an important source to solve the mystery surrounding the cursed island. The team discovered there could be more booby traps. And now they had to prepare for the worst as well. Despite that, the team was confident in solving this problem.
They also devised a brilliant idea to stop the water using advanced techniques. However, it could turn dangerous as well. This was because the flood water could increase the depth of the tunnel even more. Amid this, the experts decided to use techniques they hadn’t yet used. While the team was more concerned about stopping the water from pouring into Garden Shaft, the experts found a mysterious connection. The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11 Episode 9 revealed a peculiar connection between Oak Island, The Knights Templar, and Captain Phipps
While Garden Shaft remained the center of the investigation, the experts also focused on Aladdin’s Cave and Money Pit. A group of men discovered wood in Aladdin’s Cave, hinting at the existence of man-made constructions. Hence, the subterranean cave also possesses many secrets that remain uncovered. On the other hand, Dr. Ian was more interested in learning about Money Pit in The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11 Episode 9.
With such a huge discovery, the team is now determined to unearth this mystery as soon as possible. Can they find the treasure in The Curse Of Oak Island Season 11? Comment down your thoughts below.
