"Silver Rush" Premieres February 12 at 10pm ET



Odyssey Marine  Exploration, Inc. (Nasdaq:OMEX) will be featured on Discovery Channel's Silver Rush, a  series premiering on February 12 at 10 PM ET.



Film crews for the Discovery Channel series were onboard Odyssey's ships during 2012 operations and captured the record-breaking recovery of 48 tons of silver bullion from the Gairsoppa site. JWM Productions, the company that produced Discovery Channel's Treasure Quest also featuring Odyssey, produced the three-part series that showcases Odyssey's work on the Gairsoppa, Mantola and Victory during 2012.


 

"Part of our mission is to share the excitement of what we do with the  general public. 2012 was a special year for our team as we set out to  conduct recovery operations on a shipwreck that was over three miles  deep -- deeper than the Titanic and something that had never been accomplished before," said Mark Gordon, Odyssey President and COO.  "Our team successfully accomplished the record-breaking recovery of 48  tons of silver bullion - the heaviest and deepest recovery of precious  metals in history."
 

 

"Seeking and discovering shipwrecks is fascinating and challenging so to witness the trials and triumphs of the crew hundreds of miles off shore makes gripping television. Silver Rush will give viewers a first-hand look at the planning, precise maneuvering of advanced robotics three miles deep, and the ingenuity of the team," said JWM President Jason Williams. "Finding the shipwreck was a sensational news story, but the story of this team's 'never give up' attitude to carry out the operation that took place this year is what I think will really captivate the audience."
