During Chapter three's Video clips Both the Captain & Talbot talk to Sam about searching for "Black Rock"
So Is Talbot looking for a ship wreck of "The Black Rock"
Or could he be looking for "Magnetite" ? (also known as "Black Rock")
Magnetite is the most magnetic of all the naturally occurring minerals on Earth.
Could Talbots 'Special Equipment' (that the captian had to install) be to search for large magnetic readings ?
If so, It could be Talbots cover story for the captain that hes searching for "Black Rock"
If there are large ammounts of Magnetite in the area maybe it could effect Compass barings ?
Thanks to MikeNY for this extra Information on magnetite
So what is Talbot really looking for ?
A ship wreck, Magnetite, or could he be looking for the Island ?
And if Talbot is looking for the Island, is he working for Penny Widmore ?
