Facts: Valuable cargo, rescued from the deepest depth

At the very beginning of World War II, a British ship sank near Ireland with 200 tons of silver on board. The crash place was discovered only 70 years later, but the remains of the ship lay at the depth of more than 4,700 meters. Modern technologies have made it possible to lift from the sea bottom more than 55 tons of precious metal with the total value of $ 210 million. At the moment this is the deepest depth from which the sunken cargo was rescued.
