ORRV Announces New Three-Pronged Recovery Project

LINDON, UT--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - Oceanic Research and Recovery Inc. (ORRV) (PINKSHEETS: ORRV), a marine salvage and exploration company, today announced a new project launch, code-named "Triton."

This project encompasses three different Colonial-era shipwrecks, which were lost at the same time in the same general area. Each ship is confirmed to have carried large quantities of silver and gold coins and bullion.

This project falls within the company's current operational capabilities. No significant capital expenditures for a salvage ship, survey instrumentation or recovery equipment will be required to move this project forward.

"One of these ships was located and partially salvaged by contemporary salvors," said Scott Heimdal, President of RS Operations, ORRV's deep-water division. "The other two were located but were too deep to be salvaged, so the historical research is quite detailed and very specific on their locations."

RS Operations (RSOPS) and ORRV announced earlier this week that a merger between the two companies had been completed. The two marine salvage companies merged their assets and management teams. The company intends to continue shallow-water activities while expanding its deep-water salvage capabilities.
