Sunken Russian Warship With $130 Billion in Gold Has Been Found: A treasure-hunting company says fifty percent of an estimated $130 billion worth of gold bullion and coins they located on a sunken Russian warship that sank 113 years ago during the Russo-Japanese war off a South Korean island, will be returned to the Russian government.
Gee, are they sure this isn’t really Jeff Bezos' boat - trying to make off with all that Amazon Prime Day booty he raked in over the past few days? But come on - $130 billion in pure gold? I mean, Mr. T could make one helava necklace out of that.
So the treasure-hunters promised to give “half” the loot back to the Russians? Don’t be surprised if in the next few days - you read about a bunch of treasure hunters who were found dead from nerve gas poisoning.
One thing’s for sure, with that kind of dough, Russia can throw itself one helava party. They’ll be “Putin on the Ritz” so to speak. Ironically, gold prices “sank” after news about the discovery surfaced.
