has been discovered in Canadian waters. This shipwreck is unique in two respects:  its cargo of treasure has not been disturbed by previous generations of salvors and it has revealed information on a fascinating time in Canada’s and the world’s history. For 250 years the ship and her cargo has sat on the bottom of Aspry Bay. In one season the dive team found more than 1,700 coins of various denominations in both gold and silver. A number of them are quite rare with dates from the mid-1600s. For more information on the Auguste Expedition vsit www.northeastdiscoveries.com
