COROLLA, N.C. (WAVY) – It’s common for beachgoers to go mining for treasures… but rarely do they find an actual mine!

Corolla Beach Music posted pictures on its Facebook page showing the unusual discovery made in Corolla Monday morning. According to the post, the Navy said it is a training mine and is not active. Apparently officials have already been to the beach to pick it up.

WAVY TV also reached out to the Navy to find out more about the mine and how it may have ended up on the Outer Banks beach. We’ll let you know when we hear back.
