Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001[edit | edit source]

Main article: An Antique Land

The purpose of Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001 was to determine whether sufficient deposits of natural gas were present on Point Lookout to make large-scale diggings viable. The company was aware that potential biogas reserves on the island would likely be a result of the mass burials during the American Civil War, a fact it sought to conceal even from its own leading expert, Caroline Saunders, as it was aware of her "liberal" leanings. Martin J. Roach was given the task to monitor her and when it became apparent that Saunders was starting to show interest in the gas deposits' origins, the execution of "Code Blue" protocols in order to destroy all evidence was ordered.
