    Logs...The whole Province is covered in Logs...Why would anybody waist their time...Harvesting Logs... on an Island of roughly 145 acres...With the difficulty of removing them!

    I have a Wood Lot of the same dimension in Northern BC...I would consider it Small Potatoes...In Canada!

    There was a saw mill there once. Also people would have to move logs to clear the property to build on. As well as that they have already found theses parts of logging poles on the island before.

    J.Steele believes the island was used to make naval stores in her book This would of had heaps of logs/trees being moved about.

    On a related point the map shows the sawmill seems to be where they found those rocks with the holes in them.

    Mr. Clarence Beamish built the saw mill in the early 1900's, using reinforced steel to strengthen the concrete pillars.
    This would probably explain the rocks with the holes and spikes in them as well.

    Only question I have that I can not answer myself is who moved the large stones some of 10 or 20 tons in their exact locations to form Nolan's Cross or the Tree of Life. How did they do that? And why did they do that. Obviously someone cut stones on the Island but for what purpose? Are they the stones that are in the swamp covering an entrance into a vast tunnel system? Someone help me out with these questions? I need answers?

    If the rocks are still there...It could not have been much of...A Sawmill!

    I was thinking they may have been braces for lifting trees up (Ie cables attached to stabalise something) etc... But I know nothing about sawmills..

    Where's the sawmill tokens? There would be a treasure.

    My guess is that Nolan put them there, He had surveyed the island in the early 60's for other searchers/land owners with no mention of a cross made .The cross wasnt made public until much later when he owned the lots the boulders are on ... He was also a searcher and seeking funding.

    Naw, he removed one with a bulldozer and found treasure under it. He did not place them perfectly on exact measurements with perfect alignments. Was Nolan a mastermason?

    It appears to be a piece of an older style gigging spear. There where probably 3 or more of those on the end of a pole and are used by divers or people wading in low water gigging for lobsters or eels. Could be another piece of homemade ingenuity from the islander that made the cross shaped sinkers.

    Its very likely that someone that lives there now knows of the the resident that did all the fishing. This of course will not be shared.

    Are you suggesting this is not a Templar Artifact? Drayton was pretty sure it was Templar.
    Archie Laird doesn't have a good poker face so they try not to show him too much.
    Was watching Digging Deeper last night as nothing else was on and I like when Marty asked "Well don't most Crossbolts have wooden shafts?"

    I like gigging spear... sounds cool. If it was Templar and hundreds of years old, certianlly did good buried on a beach in salt water for HUNDREDS of years.

    Yep.. He was. He also raised money/partners for his treasure searches so it could not be ruled out that he moved some rocks to make the Cross... J.Steele believes in her book it was the Jesuit's who made the cross. Here theory is the naval store operation was owned and run by the Jesuits using slave labour. The cross was there as some type of religious ceremony/meeting place or some thing that they slaves were made to build...
