Deep Blue Marine, Inc. Receives Go Ahead for Recovery on Permitted Site

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - September 2, 2010) - Deep Blue Marine, Inc., (PINKSHEETS: DPBE), announced today that the company has received the requested recovery authorization on the sites it is currently contracted. Deep Blue Marine, Inc. previously signed an agreement to provide services in the area of survey and recovery of artifacts for an undisclosed permitted area on the north shore and has been doing so under the auspices and as specified in its contract with the Government of the Dominican Republic, and working under the supervision of the Marina de Guerra Dominicana and an inspector from the Oficina Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural Subacuatico. This recovery authorization has been awarded as the result of major historical finds in the contract area. 

The location of the find will not be released to the public at this time, but company vessels will be onsite until the recovery is deemed completed.

Wilf Blum, President and CEO, stated, "Captain Billy and his crew are to be commended for the professional manner in which they have conducted this survey and the recovery so far. To date the divers have recovered more than 120 silver coins, silver discs varying in size from two pounds to twelve pounds, ship's fittings and some gold jewelry pieces. Artifacts date to the early colonial period and are now being turned over to the government. Although this looks like a very promising site, and all indications are pointing to a very successful recovery of substantial and important artifacts, we are not yet prepared to name the ship or even the origin as we have found links to three possible countries of origin. Shareholders are advised that a recovery site has now been opened, however no major structure has been found. We have found well over 220 artifacts including ships fittings, weapons, and coins, but no structure. Even though we are highly encouraged by these finds, there is no definitive proof that there is a shipwreck structure in this area. The authorization allows us to now excavate the entire area and recover whatever artifacts we find. The recovery is under the direction of Alejandro Selmi, our senior staff archaeologist."

Mr. Blum went on to say, "As always, investing in this type of venture is very risky and no one should invest in this type of venture if they cannot safely tolerate that risk."
