    Here is the definition of the word crucible.

    cru穋i穊le

    a ceramic or metal container in which metals or other substances may be melted or subjected to very high temperatures.

    So yes maybe there has been parts of a crucible found on OI. Lots of ceramic has been found over the years... and if what Robot is saying is true whoever was doing it probably would have tried to hide/bury their workings of it and or just carry it off the island with them...Hence the "DUMP" I don't know if any of that is true but nothing you have said proves it didn't happen either..

    You mentioned there have only been traces of mercury found.. Of course years later there will only be traces left as while it does take a good while it will for the most part evaporate in the open air... Where you thinking it would just be a puddle of it laying around in the dirt? Back then they may not have fully known all the side effects of Mercury and would have probably just poured out what is not needed...

    Your and Robot's could be, maybe, what if proves absolutely nothing but just hopeful evidence to prove a pet theory.
    Those who found the flask shards said there was trace mercury residue, not I, and there is NO evidence that there ever was a crucible, gold coins, or any treasure on Oak Island, BUT there was evidence there was a "dump" with all manner of debris and garbage.
    Yet only these flask shards were mentioned by hearsay, and NEVER were verified of their actual existence.
    Like the 90 foot stone, these shards have disappeared, and neither were ever examined by an archaeologist or historian.

    well lets start there then. What all would there be uses for to have mercury around. Probably not too many Dr. on the island what could have been 300-400 years ago so doubt anyone was Dr. prescribed it for the runs...
    What else would it be used for ECS. Robot has given one reason though someone did say that gold would NOT dissolve in Mercury but apparently it will based on what I posted above from The Gold Rush Trading Post..
    One use I found was to be used as a detonator for dynamite..
    Some did believe it was a cure all for what ails ya... but how much would one little island need if nothing much ever happened there as some thing..

    Mercury was common and used for quite a few things back in the day.....providing a shine on hats....injecting into certain reproductive parts to "cure" venereal disease, and quite a few others.

    The presence of mercury does not prove a treasure beyond all compare was ever on hoax island...

    That's just it, there are very few facts either way. which means it could go either way.. and there is no way to have a decent convo about it anymore on here...

    Absolute facts have shown that the oak island treasure is just a myth perpetrated by hoaxers to fleece folks out of money...

    Where was it stated that a few of the those broken flask shards that contained a mercury residue were 300-400 years old?
    Robot did state that there was NO way to carbon date the shards or the mercury residue.
    Creating facts from fiction again, my friend n2mini?
    Up until the 1937 discovery of these broken flasks in a dump, how many people had lived/or lived of were part of a treasure hunting company that need to get rid of their everyday trash, garbage, etc?
    What is a purpose of a dump?

    Mercury was used in barometers on ships as well. We still describe atmospheric pressure in terms of "inches of mercury" or "Inches Hg". Need a tube that will hold at least 32" of it it for standard readings (30" is about "normal"). That's quite a bit of mercury by modern standards. They used it in the thermometers, too.

    In a few posts, both Robot and n2mini have provided examples on how "facts" are grown from embellished repetition of random information.
    Robot mentions that pure mercury was found on Oak Island based on a few flask shards with mercury residue.
    Then these few flask shards become a thousand that were involved with gold, and n2mini adds that a crucible used for melting made be broken into pieces in the dump where the flask shards were found, adding the 300-400 years ago dating to cover several theories, even though Robot mentioned that carbon dating could not be used to date the shards or mercury.
    All of this spun from what was a common garbage dump on Oak Island.
    Then again, the whole money pit story began with a depression in the ground that became a hole getting deeper and deeper with the telling.

    Especially when "fact" are grown from random information in support of one's pet theory.

    I found this interesting when looking at reports about the Mercury

    https://blockhouse124.rssing.com/cha...72/all_p2.html

    This article is from 2016 and it mentions the stone paved road being known about then. Which seems to suggest it was found years ago but just mentioned this season as they had run out of other things to talk about.

    Fred Nolan sold a souvenir map with the road labeled on it.
