Synopsis: The head of the Geotech drilling company stops by to check on the progress. At this point they’ve drilled 44 holes. The hole that they are most interested in is H8. They want to drill a 50” hole at this location. Meanwhile, Paul Speed, an area historian meets with the team. He tells them that a way to mine under the ocean floor was discovered in England. He also tells about Sir Francis Drake and an Inca city that he raided. He feels that there is a vault that has multiple treasures in it, but that it was also forgotten and that is why it’s been untouched so long. He continues on to say he believes Sir Francis Drake is buried on Oak Island. Jack, Charles, Gary Drayton and Laird go back to lot 26 to metal detect. They find a wall, but it looks different than the rest of the walls they have found on the island. While exploring the area, they find a square shape in the ground. Laird tells them that a permit is required to dig on that lot. At St. Mary’s the scrap turns out to be parchment. There is also a piece of black leather. She states its parts of a book and book binding. They find another depression. The area gets cleared so Marty can bring in the backhoe to excavate. While digging they find concrete but Marty can’t dig any deeper. The team gets additional information on the bones. One is European and the other is Middle Eastern. At the money pit, the equipment is being brought in to drill H8.
