From first glance, oak similar to the hundreds of neighboring Islands located in the Bay of Mahon, off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. Cliffs, magnificent oak groves. However, there is this island special Money mine, treasure where you hunt for centuries. It was the basis of strange events and secrets that have made oak as the place where the perished countless treasure hunts.
It all began in 1795, when the boys Danil McGuinness, Anthony Vaughan and John Smith, played pirates on the southern tip of the island. Here they found the oak from which hung a ship’s block with a piece of rope. And under it the boys found the entrance to a mysterious mine, completely covered with earth.
Dug found her dark, going deep down the mine pits. And on rock Foundation found the simple inscription, which I settled the boys ‘ parents.
“Gold dipped at a distance of 160+180 feet away”
After the sensational finds, treasure hunters began to go into mine, once the probe struck something solid, but mine suddenly batopilas sea water.
Later it turned out that it is not so simple. Money mine is only part of a huge complex of tunnels associated with the Bay of a Smuggler in the Northern part of the island. Several branches managed to clog, after that, the surface raised the mysterious oak barrel. After that the first hunters seem to dissolve.
Only a few years later in London there is a new tycoon Anthony Vaughan. He never goes out and buys a huge house in Canada and England. His son, Samuel, once glimpsed at a local auction where the wife gets the jewelry for $ 200,000 and disappears.
A hundred years later, Jack Lindsay and Brandon Smart assemble a company of like-minded people with whom dug up the entire island. Two decades of excavations lasted.
And by 1865, there busybodies and interfere with each other for three hundred people.
At the head of the Syndicate of Truro becomes a William sellers. Under his leadership, quite illiterate, a campaign of deep drilling, as a result, people stumbled upon chests filled with some metal and the same day there was a collapse — chests fell into the abyss.
One summer night, 1865, all the workers suddenly took off and left the island. Police later found deep within the mine the corpse of the William Sellers.
Curiously, the beginning of XX century the group of treasure hunters (“the Company to search for lost treasures”), was the future President of the United States, Fraklin Delano Roosevelt. But, these guys found nothing.
Next tried to unravel the mystery of the island group called “the Alliance of Triton”. At the head of his flock, a certain Daniel Blakenship, managed to get to the new underwater caves. There with his camera, found the severed brush, a human skull and chests.
Next mystery: going down in the pit, Daniel found something that made him a bullet to pop up to the surface and caught the first ferry off the island. Two years later Blakenship was killed during a robbery of the store.
In 2013, a pair of brothers, Rick and Marty Lagin, continued the work begun a few centuries ago. Their search History channel did an entire documentary series.
It tells the story of the successes and failures of these enterprising hunters. While Lagina managed to find a Spanish coin, indicating that the gold on the island really is.
