Silver recovered from shipwreck will go on display

Odyssey Marine Exploration, a pioneer in the fields of deep-ocean shipwreck and offshore mineral exploration, said the first public unveiling of silver recovered from the SS Gairsoppa shipwreck will be held when its multimedia traveling exhibit opens May 24 at Discovery Times Square in New York.

The exhibit — named Shipwreck! — features hundreds of authentic artifacts and historical treasures recovered from Odyssey’s deep-ocean projects from around the world. Odyssey’s world-class archaeological work is showcased through interactive elements, graphic displays and an enhanced theater experience.

Silver recovered from the World War II-era SS Gairsoppa shipwreck, which lies about 3 miles deep, will be on display. This is the first public showing of some of the 1,218 silver bars (about 48 tons) of silver recovered to date from the Gairsoppa, which is the heaviest and deepest recovery of precious metal from a shipwreck in history.
