Ruby Mining Company Confirms Two Shipwrecks
ATLANTA, April 12, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Ruby Mining Company (OTCBB:RUBM), conducting operations through its subsidiary, Admiralty Corporation (Admiralty), announced today that its ship, the New World Legacy, has sailed into Christobal, Panama to release crew members that must return home. The Corazon Grande sailed to Honduras. Christobal will be our homeport during recovery operations. Initial objectives, to confirm the shipwreck thought to be from the sixteenth or seventeenth century and to film and document items that can be seen on the ocean floor, have been exceeded. While we were able to examine only a relatively small portion of our 30 square mile arrested area, we located a second historical shipwreck, which we believe to be from the early 1800s. Also located were at least three more modern wrecks (fiberglass hulls). In addition to the wrecks located, many artifacts were collected.
