Salvage of century-old Russian warship could unearth billions of dollars in gold

A South Korean exploration startup says it has a Russian armored cruiser ship that sank more than a century ago and rumored to have a fortune in gold encased in her hull. The Shinil Group said it found the 6,200-ton Dmitrii Donskoi on July 14 deep in waters off South Korea's eastern Ulleung Island.
