BLUE WATER VENTURES INTERNATIONAL, INC AND PROJECT PARTNER ENDURANCE EXPLORATION GROUP, INC ANNOUNCE PREPARATIONS FOR 2019 OPERATIONS

March 28, 2019 — Blue Water Ventures International, Inc. (OTCPK:BWVI) and Endurance Exploration Group, Inc (OTCPK:EXPL) announced today that preparations for field operations for 2019 are well under way. Multiple vessels with technical personnel and dive teams will be deployed to the Carolina’s in the 2ndQuarter which coincides with the return of good weather to the region.

Initial field operations will include a thorough archeological study of the area in and around the site of the SS North Carolina, a paddle wheeler steamship that was lost in 1840.  The SS North Carolina is similar in many respects to the SS Pulaski, they were both built around the same time, sank only two years apart, were both involved in the packet trade, they traveled the same routes, serviced the same types and classes of clientele, and would have carried similar cargoes of age and quality. 

Keith Webb, CEO of BWVI, states “These are very exciting times and we are looking forward to a successful season.”

In addition, BWVI will launch an intense survey on 12 wrecksite locations the Company purchased GPS coordinates on several years ago. These surveys will include side scan and magnetometer sensing in mid-April and will be completed by mid-May, weather permitting.

A Portion of Pulaski Shipwreck Coin Collection Has Sold

February 13, 2019  

St Petersburg, FL – Endurance Exploration Group (OTC: EXPL) and expedition partner, Blue Water Ventures International (OTC: BWVI), are pleased to announce that they have sold a portion of the rare coins recovered from the SB Pulaski wreck site during the 2018 dive season. The joint venture partners have retained certain coins, as well as unique and valuable artifacts for monetization at a later date, and will provide the opportunity for display, academic study, and public viewing.

The proceeds from the sale of these coins was sufficient to recoup the costs of salvage efforts in 2018 and will provide sufficient working capital for the upcoming 2019 salvage season. The coin sales will allow the expedition partners to continue excavating the 1838 SB Pulaski wreck site, which is estimated to still contain 98% of its coins, precious metals, and additional valuable artifacts. The JV Partners estimate that they have only recovered approximately 2% of the valuable cargo from the shipwreck and are eager to commence the 2019 dive season and continue the potentially lucrative salvage effort.

Further, the proceeds from the coin sales will provide additional working capital to commence salvage operations on additional wreck sites, such as the recently arrested 1840 loss of steamship, ‘North Carolina’, which was once owned by the Vanderbilt shipping line.

Selected coins were sold to one of the world’s largest coin distribution companies, Asset Marketing Services (AMS) who is making selected coins available to their numismatic collecting clients.   Collectors interested in acquiring coins from the Pulaksi shipwreck may contact AMS at Govmint.com

AMS CEO, Bill Gale, commented “At the time the SS Pulaski sailed, Americans carried both foreign and U.S. coins in their pockets and they made no distinction between the two in daily commerce. This changed in 1857, when foreign coins were no longer considered U.S. legal tender, but the Pulaski treasure offers a fascinating glimpse into how Americans viewed their money during our first 80 years as a country. Another thing that impressed me was the high quality of the U.S. coins recovered from the wreck. Even though the coins were lost at sea over 180 years ago, many of the recovered coins are in astonishingly good condition.”

Blue Water Ventures CEO, Keith Webb, commented “To see these coins come to life after almost 200 years underwater, is a site to behold.  We are thrilled that Asset Marketing Services will be able to share these special coins with the public.”

OPERATIONS ARE BEING EXPANDED TO INCLUDE THE WRECK BELIEVED TO BE THE SS NORTH CAROLINA

October 23, 2018 -Jacksonville, Florida – Blue Water Ventures International, Inc. (OTCPK:BWVI) and project partner Endurance Exploration Group, Inc (OTC:EXPL) will expand its operations to what is believed to be the wreck of the SS North Carolina.  Endurance Exploration operating under it’s joint venture Swordfish Partners, has been granted a custodianship of the vessel, by the Middle District Court of Florida.

The SS North Carolina is of interest to our venture because of its similarity to the Pulaski. It sank in 1840, only two years after the Pulaski. It was of similar size and design and operated along the same routes along the East coast of the United States.  Operations will begin by conducting a thorough archeological study and survey of the area, using advanced underwater sensing technology.  We believe likely discoveries similar to those being made on the Pulaski will also be found on the North Carolina.

UPDATE PULASKI RECOVERY PROJECT, COINS AND ARTIFACTS

September 26, 2018 -Jacksonville, Florida – Project partners Blue Water Ventures International, (OTCPK:BWVI) and Endurance Exploration Group, (OTC:EXPL) offer our heartfelt thoughts and well wishes to our friends and neighbors in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, NC. during the continued recovery efforts from Hurricane Florence.

In other developments, the US Courts have awarded title to more than 50 rare coins that were recovered during our winter operations from the Steamboat Pulaski, which sank in 1838. More than 500 gold and silver coins have been recovered from the wreck. All are currently being conserved by Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS) and graded by their affiliate, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). NCS and NGC are world leaders in expert coin conservation and grading, respectively.

A number of the coins recovered from the wreck are extremely rare and are highly valued by collectors. After conservation by NCS and grading by NGC, they will be securely encapsulated in tamper-evident NGC holders with labels bearing their descriptions, conditions and historic pedigree.
“NCS and NGC are honored to have been selected to conserve, grade and protect these coins,” says Mark Salzberg, chairman of NCS and NGC. “Their history and provenance, coupled with their rarity and condition, will make them prized by collectors.”

In addition to the coins, several beautiful and ornate pocket watches have been recovered. These watches display the meticulous detail and painstaking precision of the craftsmen of the day. One watch chain and fob has been fabricated from fine stippled gold and ends with an intricately designed hand wrought wire charm. “We’ve just scratched the surface on the Pulaski recovery, we expected the rare coins, but the pocket watches have been a total surprise. Each trip to the site reveals a little more of the Pulaski secrets.” States Keith Webb of Blue Water Ventures (BWVI)

Endurance Exploration Group (EXPL) operating through its JV Partnership Sword Fish Partners expects the Federal Admiralty Court to adjudicate title to the additional recoveries within the coming days. Micah Eldred, President of Endurance Exploration Group adds, “We have been very pleased with the project success to date, our partnership has performed well, the court process has been timely and smooth, and we look forward to additional Pulaski finds and recoveries in the coming months”
