SAN DIEGO, Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Dragon Resources, Inc. (OTC:EARH) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Project X, Inc., have launched a strategic plan to locate and recover refined metals from cargo ships, numbering in the thousands, lost at sea throughout the world's oceans during World Wars One and Two. Present estimates of the value of these lost shipments of metals exceed $100 billion.
Earth Dragon Resources has done extensive research and identified this as a highly viable and advantageous opportunity. The evolution in technology has made it increasingly possible to identify and access these shipwrecks globally. The relatively short term return on investment for the Company is very lucrative, in striking contrast to a typical mining operation which requires years of development in a highly regulated sector with enormous capital demands.
Refined metals from these wrecks can be easily located, and readily recuperated within a few months' time. For a small fraction of the total value of the recovered metals, the reclamation effort can be completed yielding a potential rate of return on capital investment from a potential range of 300% to as high as 5000%, contingent on the metals being recovered.
The Company has positioned itself to be a leader in this niche industry. The Global Recovery Initiative recently launched combines personnel highly skilled in marine operations and specialists in the latest cutting edge technology combined with a comprehensive program designed to research all ships lost during Wartimes to determine the most lucrative candidates for a successful and profitable recovery.
Research reveals that hundreds of thousands of tons of valuable metals lie within ships scattered across the ocean floor awaiting discovery and recovery using today's advanced technology. At the time these cargos were lost, gold was $20 - $35 an ounce with copper valued at only a few pennies a pound, and platinum considered just another industrial metal. The last 30 years have seen the prices for all these metals increase in value many times. What was once a $10 million gold shipment to pay for war supplies is now cargo valued over $700 million. A common shipment of 5000 tons of copper is now worth over $35 million. An equal amount of nickel is worth over $70 million while tin would be more than $100 million.
The Surge in demand in the Gold market is evidently exploding on a worldwide basis as investors increasingly take flight to the safe haven of Gold and other precious metal investments, as they endeavor to protect their reserves through safer means than the faltering system of fiat based investments.
Over the past decade, gold has experienced an unprecedented incline in value. Contending fiercely with the top movers of the past decade, gold has risen in value from within the range of $250 per ounce in early 2000 to in the range of $1700 as of the last quarter of this past year, soaring upward near the range of a 700% increase.
Due to technological advancements making it simple to locate these vessels in collaboration with the continual rise in the value of precious metals, it is increasingly apparent that this is a robust opportunity prepared to be fully materialized.
