Keith Jessop is the most successful treasure hunter and salvage diver in history,a man who has made - and lost - millions rescuing treasure from the deep. The illegitimate son of a penniless Yorkshire mill-girl,heleft school without a single qualification and,to make endsmeet,he started salvaging scrap metal from shallow water wrecks off the coast of Scotland using the inner tube of a tractor tyre with a basket fixed in the centre as a vessel. Always ready to embrace danger,he learned to deep dive during a series of spectacularly risky recoveries in ever more treacherous waters working on the salvage divers' harsh principle of 'No Cure,No Pay'. It was only with advances in technology,allowing longer and deeper dives that his dream of recovering the HMS Edinburgh's gold began inching towards reality. . . . GOLDFINDER is the extraordinary true story of Keith's progress from aquatic Steptoe and Son to salvaging the richest prize of all - over $100 million of Russian gold - from the bottom of the Arctic Ocean. GOLDFINDER is a compelling adventure story of the discovery of untold riches against the backdrop of piracy,big business,government conspiracy,treachery and betrayal and even the alleged involvement of a leading member of theRoyal Family,encompassing the thrills and terror of deep sea diving and the awesome,unforgiving power of the ocean., LONDON.SIMON & SCHUSTER,1998.

ID: 6583491

As a young boy, Keith Jessop dreamed of leaving the Yorkshire, England, mill town of Keighley behind to sail the seas in search of treasure. Four decades later, he found his chest of gold: 431 gold bars, to be exact, from the HMS Edinburgh, 800 feet down in the Arctic Sea. Jessop tells his rags-to-riches story in Goldfinder. From his first snorkel dives as a Royal Marine commando and his first scuba dive--when he could very easily have died--Jessop was hooked. He began collecting equipment and spending every nonworking moment either in the water or heading to and from it. He quit his job--much to the consternation of his long-suffering wife, Mildred--and began working as a salvage diver going after nonferrous metal fittings from shipwrecks. Working his first wreck, the SS. Pollux II, "brought back memories of my childhood fantasies to me, but this was the real thing, almost as good as diving on a galleon full of pieces of eight." Later, he and his partners recovered over 200 tons of copper from the Johanna Thorden, earning themselves the nickname "The Copper Kings" in the process. Between wrecks Jessop turned to saturation diving (where divers stay in a pressurized environment for days on end) on offshore oil platforms. Time not spent in the water was spent doing research, using both alcohol ("the research often involved nothing more than buying the local lobstermen a pint. They'd point out sites where they'd lost lobster pots, a good indic antiques and collectibles,biographies,biographies,crafts and hobbies,europe,history,jewelry,precious metals,russia,scuba Water Sports, Simon & Schuster Ltd
