Currently we have numerous projects and agreements that will be announced in the near future, including board members and management. We intend to become the largest sunken treasure recovery company in the world. While our primary focus will be on ancient cargo wrecks (prior to 1800 wrecks), such as galleons transporting gold, silver and jewels from the new world to Europe, we also will target proven and claimed areas for more modern 19th century wrecks that can contain very valuable and unique cargoes, including rare intricate artifacts, jewelry, furnishings, arms, coinage, and other items.
