Today I got some good news from the Department of Environment. The application was APPROVED and as of June 1st we can explore the sand mound and move it to uncover what lies beneath.

I have been in contact with a diver from Moncton for the past month. Danny actually called me and offered to help out with the search since he is moving to the area with his family this summer. I don't even know his last name yet but he is scheduled to come up next week to talk about summer search possibilities. We have had some very interesting discussions and ideas concerning the search
