Found remains of a British boat

A U.S. company specializing in the recovery of shipwrecks said he found the remains of a British ship believed to be carrying a huge load of money when it was torpedoed during the First World War.

What remains of the SS Mantola is sunk about two thousand meters in the North Atlantic, off the coast of Ireland.

The papers suggest that silver is now worth aboard some 19 million dollars.

It is the second important finding in the area for the salvage company Odyssey Marine Exploration. Last month he found a wreck of the Second World War, which is believed to contain 200 tons of silver, worth more than one hundred million dollars.
