    Nazi Gold Found On Sunken Ship

    Nazi Gold Found On Sunken Ship Could Be Worth $130 Million

    You could never accuse the Nazis of having hearts of gold — but a new discovery shows that when it comes to Nazi vessels, it’s a different story.

    Indeed, British treasure hunters have uncovered up to $130 million-worth of gold within the wreckage of the SS Minden, a Nazi cargo ship.

    As the Sun first reported, hunters from Advanced Marine Services (AMS) found the sunken goldmine 120 miles off the coast of Iceland, whose government approval the researchers must receive in order to open the chest.

    In spite of the ship’s massive historical — and now financial — value, it might be a bit difficult for the AMS crew to get Iceland’s government on board with their proposal to take the chest back to the UK, however. Back in April, the Iceland Coast Guard stopped the crew on another British vessel — the Seabed Constructor — for not having the necessary permits to conduct research in Iceland’s waterways.

    The Minden met its end early on in World War Two. While traveling from Brazil to Germany just after war broke out in September 1939, the vessel — carrying up to four tons of valuable metal — became surrounded by the Royal Navy’s HMS Calypso. Hitler reportedly ordered the ship’s sinking so enemy forces could not raid it.

    AMS’ discovery is just the latest in a series of Nazi artifactual finds. In June, a trove of Nazi relics were uncovered in a Buenos Aires, Argentina, home. Experts believe were brought to the South American country after the war ended.

    Good chance it may have been Trump as he seems to be the one who gets blamed for everything else these days.

    Sorry Nev, I did not discovered that. You know that I am only the "semi-illiterate European twat" (or was it East European?). And if I placed something like this I am also an "idiot" ... (wondering why it stepped on some people's toe?)


    It seems that if the "unrecognized Media" publicized it, it did not happen, but who cares?

    (After all, it is not about the Russian (Bolshevik's) Gold that has disappeared 100 years ago, when the Allied armies thanked the Russian armies for helping to win the WWI by the intervention war...)

    So you’re going to be following this developing story from 2017 then.

    Got any updates from 2019?

    Good grief, you're full of it . . . just say you didn't realise it was a story from 2017 and get on with your life

    A final search at the wreck was conducted over the period of three days in July 2018 by the vessel MV Seabed Worker.[8][9][10][11][12] Following these operations, AMS stated in a report to the Environment Agency of Iceland: "It was confirmed that no items of value were found".....

    A 'source' repeating a story that was in 'The Sun' in 2017 must be just too edgy for some, I guess.

    You really are a ridiculous tit.

    Yep, and the 'source' uses Blogger software. That should have been enough to make anyone look for an original source elsewhere.

    Anyway, the latest "news" from Klondyke's "unrecognized Media" is that George Washington has died. Glad I found that out today.

    webnewsys.com is a blog and not a news source.
    Since it is a blog you can not find who is behind it, there is no "about us", there is no "our history"
    They can fill their blog with whatever old stories they find suitable.

    You would have known that if you had done a quick fact check before copying that article to TD.

    So . . . it would have stopped you from looking like an utter plonker yet again - why keep justifying yourself. Admit that it's old, you messed up and move on.
