With a recently acquired treasure trove licence that is good until the end of the year, Oak Island owner Dan Blankenship and his four American partners are taking another run at solving the centuries-old mystery of whether there is treasure to be found.
Blankenship, 87, who was first spellbound by the Oak Island mystery in 1965 and moved to Nova Scotia from the United States in the 1970s, has not lost his passion for the project, despite a lack of success to date.
He recently spoke to The Chronicle Herald about his team’s search for the illusive treasure trove.
Oak Island Treasure - the world's greatest treasure hunt - Let the treasure hunt begin - again

Dan Blankenship, who shares ownership of the island, confirmed that drilling had resumed for a short time recently.
"We've already done some exploratory drilling," he said.
...
For the time being Mr. Blankenship said he plans on playing his cards close when it comes to any new work.
"Whatever results we have we're going to keep to ourselves for now," he said. "We're going to wait until we've got a bird in the hand [before we make any announcements]."
There are plans for drilling to resume this summer, but Mr. Blankenship couldn't say exactly when that would be.
An on-line forum out of the United Kingdom dedicated to the Oak Island treasure hunt (http://www.oakislandtreasure.co.uk) claiming to have inside information suggests the "new drilling efforts are concentrated further north than the original Money Pit as three holes have been dug - one to 160 feet and two more to a huge depth of 300 feet."
Mr. Blankenship, a native of Delaware, Ohio, began his hunt for the Oak Island treasure in 1965. In the past four decades he has found artifacts and groundwork he believes are key to unlocking the island's secrets.

Four investors from Michigan (namely: Marty Lagina, Craig Tester, Rick Lagina, Alan Kostrzewa) have teamed up with long-time treasure seeker Dan Blankenship in hopes of unlocking the Oak Island mystery.

Dan Blankenship, the President of Oak Island Tours, is the driving force behind the search, and he is responsible for developing the future exploration plans.
Oak Island Treasure - the world's greatest treasure hunt - Oak Island 'legal minefield'
www.oakislandtreasure.co.uk, 25 Feb 2006 [cached]
The department issued three treasure-trove licenses in April, with the rights to explore the Borehole 10X lot going to Oak Island Explorations Ltd. - a company Mr. Blankenship used to direct with fellow treasure hunter David Tobias.
...
The two parted ways when Mr. Blankenship's interest in Borehole 10X grew, while Mr. Tobias remained focused on the famed money pit site.
...
"They never got that far with the money pit, with any of the shafts," Mr. Blankenship said in a phone interview earlier this week, adding that Borehole 10X revealed more positive evidence in two centuries of searching than any other shaft on the island.
"There was a conflicting application submitted by Mr. Blankenship, which covered area held by Oak Island Explorations," explained Rick Ratcliffe, the province's registrar of mineral and petroleum titles.
...
Mr. Ratcliffe explained that the property owners must give permission to treasure-trove applicants - Oak Island Tours gave permission to Oak Island Explorations, not to Mr. Blankenship.
...
But Mr. Blankenship said he's frustrated because, although he is no longer a partner in Oak Island Explorations, he is vice-president of Oak Island Tours - which owns a large chunk of the 32-hectare island, including the Borehole 10X property.
Mr. Blankenship said he and Mr. Tobias combined own 23 lots on Oak Island.
"And they still saw fit to give the new treasure-trove license to my partner.
"Mr. Tobias cannot unilaterally give permission," Mr. Blankenship said.
...
"The president has the casting vote at a meeting, but no meeting has been held," Mr. Blankenship said.
