Colombia treasure-laden San Jose galleon 'is found'

The wreck of a Spanish boat laden with treasure that sank more than 300 years ago near the Colombian city of Cartagena has been found, President Juan Manuel Santos has announced.

"Great news! We have found the San Jose galleon," the president tweeted.

The San Jose has been described as the holy grail of shipwrecks, carrying one of the largest amounts of valuables ever to have been lost at sea.

Lots of value involved too, that will cause some wrangling over who gets it I bet... from the OP

The Colombian government's announcement on Friday that it had found the San Jose did not mention its long-running quarrel with US-based salvage company Sea Search Armada (SSA) over claims to the treasure - estimated to be worth between $4bn and $17bn (£2.6bn-£11bn; €3.7bn-€15.6bn).

$4 to $17 billion. That's a $16,999,999,996 gap in estimates.

No, it a $13 billion dollar gap.

Actually, it was my understanding that while a US salvage team was involved, Colombia was by a US court awarded the loot.

Yeah I was being a smart ass because of the way it was worded.
