    The full story can be found on Discovery News.

    Here is a snippet.
    Laying deeper than the Titanic, the wreck is believed to hold the largest haul of precious metal lost at sea.

    According to U.S. underwater archaeology and salvage company Odyssey Marine Exploration Inc, up to 240 tons of silver, valued at more than $200 million, could be retrieved by next spring.

    "We've accomplished the first phase of this project -- the location and identification of the target shipwreck -- and now we're hard at work planning for the recovery phase," Andrew Craig, Odyssey Senior Project Manager, said in a statement.

    Re: 200 Tons of Silver Found on WWII Ship

    Looks like my nearby neighbors have struck pay dirt again. They must've been pretty pissed about the recent decision to allow Spain to claim the loot from the Spanish ship they (Odyssey Marine Exploration) found a few years back.... Anger can be a phenomenal motivator on the way to success!
    This recent find of a WWII era ship laden with treasure reminds me of a movie starring Charles Bronson called 'Cabo Blanco'. Some decent movie entertainment for those of you out there hard up for some.
