Blue Water Ventures International, Inc. (BWVI) has acquired shipwreck location data in international waters off the coast ofthe United States.

The data, which BWVI has purchased from Cobalt Blue Exploration, LLC (CBE), was collected during CBE's 30 years of commercial fishing enterprise.

BWVI plans an initial assessment of four of the sites, with preliminary dives and archaeological reviews launching in July under Chief Archaeologist James Sinclair, MA.

BWVI President Keith Webb commented that the Cobalt Blue Exploration research documents show modern and historic targets which fall in line with the Company's Phase II business model to conduct recovery operations in deep waters.

The intrinsic antique value of coins, bullion and other forms of shipwreck treasure is never easy to determine. In the final analysis, sunken treasure like all other antiques is only worth what a collector is willing to pay for it.

Professional appraisals are usually based upon the previous record of sales prices which comparative objects have realized. Widespread publicity from documentary films, traveling exhibits, high-profile magazine articles and professional publications always helps to enhance the collector's value of any shipwreck treasure.
