After the Third Canadian Edition came off the presses, O'brien awoke in the middle of the night, stunned by a very important memory that had not come forth as he was writing all three editions. That led to his quickly drafting a supplementary article that was condensed by Jack Sorenson for a joint presentation at a March 2018 meeting of the Lunenburg County Unity Group.

There now are New and Expanded Editions of the book, Oak Island Unearthed:

  • April 2017: Second International Edition (USA)
  • April 2017: Second International Edition (Metric)
  • May 2017: Third Canadian Edition (Metric/Imperial)

The main purpose of the following article is to explore the implications of the fact that in Nova Scotia's Mahone Bay there are two other shafts like that at Oak Island. All three shafts obviously were originally meant to facilitate underground mining. And that mining in Mahone Bay was for a rare type of clay. With respect for O'Brien's remarkable book, I have entitled my contribution Mahone Bay Unearthed.

If you are a thinking reader, Mahone Bay Unearthed may help open your mind to John O. O'Brien's "mining-for-clay" hypothesis. As a son of two mining geologists, I grew up in a major mining town in north Idaho, and I have linked easily with both O'Brien's thinking and his ways. At age 79, researching and writing this presentation was not easy, but I offer it to you with a strong sense of its validity. Plunge ahead!
