Watch as 48 Tons of Lost Silver Bullion is Recovered From the Ocean Floor: Silver Rush on Discovery Channel

This past summer, Discovery Channel cameras rolled as the world’s best-known deep-sea recovery team, Odyssey Marine Exploration (OME), successfully recovered approximately 48 tons of silver bullion from the SS Gairsoppa – making it the deepest and heaviest cargo recovery in history.

SILVER RUSH, a new three-part series narrated by Mike Rowe, tells the story of one of the greatest deep-sea treasure quests of all time. The series will take viewers on board Odyssey’s flagship, the Odyssey Explorer, as it launches its most audacious operation ever — locate and excavate three shipwrecks worth as much as a billion dollars all in one season. But will they be able to complete the entire recovery effort in just 90 days before punishing storms roll in?

I was a fan of the earlier series about the Odyssey, “Treasure Quest” also produced by Discovery Channel. Phenomenal amounts of money spent to find treasures.
