Endurance Exploration Group (OTCQB:EXPL) is pleased to announce that it has completed a video survey of the shipwrecked paddle steamer Connaught and retrieved the first artifacts from the surrounding debris field. These artifacts, including bottles and chinaware, are currently undergoing conservation. Initial video footage of the site will be released soon.
“This represents the first big step as we begin the careful excavation of the shipwreck Connaught,” said Endurance CEO Micah Eldred. “Artifacts from the debris field are giving us an up-close look into the condition of the ships’ cargo after 155 year of submergence and fishing net strikes. This information is critical to our exploration of the Connaught’s interior as we work to locate her gold cargo.”
