Dispute about 20 tons of gold buried in the seabed

A dispute has arisen over a large amount of gold believed to be buried in the seabed. According to reports, the gold, which is estimated to weigh around 20 tons, was lost during a shipwreck off the coast of the United States over 150 years ago.

The treasure is said to have been discovered by a salvage company, but now the ownership of the gold is being contested by both the company and the US government. The case has gone to court, with the outcome expected to have major implications for the future of maritime salvage and the rights of governments to lay claim to lost treasures.

The treasure in question is believed to have come from the SS Central America, a steamship that sank during a hurricane in 1857 while carrying a large amount of gold from the California Gold Rush. The ship was discovered in the 1980s, and over the years, several salvage attempts have been made to recover the treasure.

The current dispute centers around the ownership of the gold, with the salvage company claiming that it has the right to keep the treasure since it was found on the seabed. However, the US government has argued that the gold belongs to the country and that the treasure should be returned to the people.


The case is being closely watched by both the maritime salvage industry and the wider public, as the outcome could have major implications for the future of treasure hunting and the ownership of lost treasures. It’s unclear when a final decision will be reached, but many experts predict that the case could set an important precedent for years to come.

In the meantime, the search for lost treasure continues, with salvage companies and treasure hunters scouring the oceans in search of lost riches. While the outcome of this case may determine who has the right to claim these treasures, one thing is clear: the allure of lost gold and treasure remains as strong as ever.
