Discover how you can get your share of the greatest gold salvage operation, ever!

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 series of salvage operations which have already started. You can be part of this exciting operation and get your share of the potential bounty.

Why is there GOLD at the bottom of the ocean?

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. 

A secret DOCUMENT found by chance...

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.

25 years of RESEARCH

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.

Gold salvage is expensive

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. 

Private finance was the only option

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.  

The Dinner Party that changed everything

Late in 2016, a dinner party was held by an adviser to a small business investment club, called The Angel Business Club. One of the people sat at the table mentioned a project of one of their friends who had attempted to crowdfund for a gold salvage operation but had failed. 

The Angel Business Club stepped in and asked their network of investors if they wished to invest in such a project. A new business was formed (Britannia's Gold Ltd) consisting of a team of top marine salvage experts and the funds were raised to start the project.

Stage 1: Survey completed

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 any doubt the positive identification of the shipwrecks and secondly to check the condition of the wrecks to determine they were viable for salvage.

huge success

The survey was a huge success and of the 5 shipwrecks surveyed, 3 were deemed viable 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 verified  (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 was still there to be collected.

More than just GOLD

Items of particular high value (e.g. gold, silver), will be buried deep within the cargo holds (heaviest items are loaded first for balance) and will be recovered during the full salvage operation.

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 also.

GOLD SALVAGE - It's happening now!

The funds to pay for the survey and salvage operation (c. £8 million) were raised by private investors, most of whom are members of The Angel Business Club and salvage operations have already commenced.
