EXPL is a publicly traded company with the stock ticker symbol of EXPL, and is in the business of researching and recovering historic shipwrecks and their cargos lost across various historical periods. Among other ongoing projects, EXPL is currently working on the salvage of the Steamship Pulaski off the coast of North Carolina. The Steamship Pulaski was built by the Savannah and Charleston Steam Packet Company to safely and quickly carry cargo and passengers from Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina, to Baltimore, Maryland. On her last voyage, on the night of June 14, 1838, after she left Charleston for Baltimore with many prominent passengers, including a Congressman, the starboard boiler exploded and the vessel quickly capsized and was lost. Of the approximately 150 passengers and 37 crew members, there were only 59 survivors. The remaining crew and passengers, together with the passenger valuables, estimated at $150,000 face value at the time of the loss, and estimated to be worth millions of dollars today, sank with the ship. To date EXPL has recovered dozens of silver and gold coins, dishware, and components of the vessel.
