Russian Imperial Navy ship found 113 years later

A Russian warship believed to hold $130-Billion in gold bullion and  coins was found off the coast of a South Korean island. The vessel sunk  113 years ago during the Russo-Japanese War.

South Korean, British and Canadian explorers found the wreckage from  the Dmitrii Donskoi over 1,400 feet below sea level off the coast of the  South Korean island of Ulleungdo, reports say.

The Russian Imperial Navy cruiser had a literal treasure chest  onboard. Explorers unearthed about 5,500 boxes of gold bars and coins  weighing some 200 tons. An agreement has reportedly been reached to  return half of the gold to the Russian government, with portions of the  remainder going towards business development in Asia. About 10% would be  set aside for tourism projects on Ulleungdo, including a museum  dedicated to the ship.
