Odyssey Marine Exploration, pioneers in the field of deep-ocean exploration, will be featured on Discovery Channel’s “Silver Rush,” a series premiering at 10 p.m. on Feb. 12.

Film crews for the Discovery Channel series were onboard Odyssey’s ships during 2012 operations and captured the record-breaking recovery of 48 tons of silver bullion from the Gairsoppa wreck site.

JWM Productions, the company that produced Discovery Channel’s “Treasure Quest,” that also featuring Odyssey, produced the three-part series that showcases Odyssey’s work on the Gairsoppa, Mantola and Victory during 2012.

“Part of our mission is to share the excitement of what we do with the general public. 2012 was a special year for our team as we set out to conduct recovery operations on a shipwreck that was over three miles deep – deeper than the Titanic and something that had never been accomplished before,” Odyssey president and COO Mark Gordon said
