Does anybody have any current information in regard to Spain building a treasure hunting ship? Hopefully they are building it to go out and recover all the mercury they lost at sea before all of it turns into methyl mercury and gets into the food chain!

They appear to be moving toward recovery on both land and sea and developing search technology plus strategies, interacting with treasure hunters/archaeologists in Spanish speaking countries.

I don't know the name, sure looks they want try exploration searches. It should already be out there doing search operations now.

The vessel will be equipped with remotely operated underwater robots and specialised sonar equipment that can help marine archaeologists to locate wrecks.
The ship will also help rescue stricken submarines and the bodies of fallen crews for humanitarian reasons.

“This ship could help us in finding and, if necessary, recover wrecks. The last time the Spanish navy helped us in this way was when we located ships lost in the Battle of Trafalgar, but their current ship is very old and outdated,” said Carlos Leon, a marine archaeologist who works with the Spanish government.
