FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION...
At the bottom of the oceans, lies an estimated £145 billion of gold, owned by the British Government. A group of private investors have raised funds to enable a salvage operation which has now started. You can be part of this exciting operation and get your share of the potential profit. Check out the full details on this page...
During World Wars 1 & 2 the British Government shipped gold bullion to pay for critical war supplies. It was the greatest physical movement of gold in history. It's well documented that during both World Wars, more than 7,500 British merchant ships (half of all British ships) were sunk by enemy fire.
Exclusive research has identified more than 700 of those ships were designated as "official gold carriers", carrying gold and other high value cargo out of the UK to pay for war supplies such as food and munitions. The estimated present day value of the gold and silver contained in those sunken ships is around £145,000,000,000 pounds.
25 years ago amongst a box of wills of deceased sailors, a document was found that was written by an adviser to the wartime UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, Reginald McKenna.
The document clearly indicated secret gold movements made on behalf of the government on requisitioned merchant liners. The document identified the names of the Liners and the value of gold each were carrying.
This discovery resulted in a small team of international researchers to spend the next 25 years systematically investigating maritime and financial institution archives, both in the UK and overseas for more details. The team collated a database of unique intelligence, giving wreck location and cargo content on over 700 merchant liners that were used to transport gold and other precious materials from the UK. A total of 8 million pages of information has been compiled, giving documented evidence of the names and locations of shipwrecks plus details of the cargo they contain.
Having the information on where the high value shipwrecks are located is one thing, but having the skills, equipment and the finance to carry out the salvage is a different matter. The wrecks in the Atlantic are too deep for "normal" divers which means salvage operations need to be carried out using remote operated vehicles (ROV), sophisticated cameras and advanced cutting technology.
The UK government would not be in a position to spend public money on such a high risk and expensive operation. The only way to fund a project of this complexity and cost was through private finance.
Late in 2016, the founder of a small investor Club (The Angel Business Club) hosted a private dinner party for a few close friends. One of the people sat at the table mentioned a friend who was attempting to crowdfund for a gold salvage operation. During 2017 and 2018, The Angel Business Club asked their network of investors if they wished to invest and the Club duly raised around £8 million - the funds necessary to start the salvage project. A business was formed (Britannia's Gold Ltd) consisting of a team of top marine salvage experts.
Research had identified 5 specific target wrecks believed to contain high value cargo in the North Atlantic. In 2018, the salvage team carried out a detailed survey. The purpose of the survey was two fold. Firstly, to verify beyond reasonable doubt the positive identification of the correct shipwrecks and secondly to check the condition of the wrecks.
The survey was a huge success and of the 5 shipwrecks surveyed, 3 were deemed ready for salvage. Watch the brief highlights from the 2018 survey of wrecks (click the video below)
From one of the wrecks a silver plate was retrieved (see photo). The makers hallmark, Elkington, can clearly be seen, but more importantly, the shipping company’s logo was also verifiable (see photo). This gave the team 100% confidence the correct shipwreck had been found. These "easy to reach" items also indicated that no other salvage attempt had been made, giving further confidence the gold and silver is still there to be collected.
Items of particular high value (e.g. gold, silver), will be buried deep within the cargo holds (heaviest items are loaded low in the hold) and will be recovered during the full salvage operation has now started (full salvage commenced in late March 2019)
The survey in 2018 also gave excellent visual identification of other desirable cargoes being carried by the ships. For example, a large volume of tin (sn) (see photos below).
Further cargo identified during the survey included zinc ingots (Zn), complete with the manufacturers stamp still visible, (see photos below). Tin and Zinc are still in high demand in today's metals markets and given the considerable volume on the wrecks, the salvage team plan to recover these metals at the same time as the gold and silver.
The funds to pay for the survey and salvage operation (c. £8 million) were raised by private investors during 2017 and 2018 and the full salvage is now underway on the first target. 3 shipwrecks are included in the first salvage operation and the first salvage is likely to be completed any day now.
The UK's leading newspapers have also published articles relating to this project. Here are some of the press clippings:

The Angel Business Club is a savings and investment Club with around 2,000 active members around the world. The Club invests in high risk/high reward opportunities such as Britannia's Gold.
All the gold and other valuables recovered during the salvage operation will be shared between the UK government who are the official owners (c. 40%), shareholders of Britannia's Gold Ltd (c. 50%) and war charities (c. 10%).
The Angel Business Club owns a significant stake in Britannia's Gold Ltd and will be paying out its share of the gold dividends to members of The Club according to how many Britannia's Gold Dividend Units ("Gold Units") each member has.
Join the Angel Business Club in April and you will receive Gold Units as part of your share allocation. Each Gold Unit qualifies you for a cash dividend from this and all future salvage operations.
It's unlikely Gold Units will be issued beyond 30th April 2019. Secure as many Gold Units as you can by joining The Angel Business Club today.
By joining the Angel Business Club today, not only will you receive Gold Units in this exciting salvage project but every month you will also receive free shares in early stage businesses.
