And silver is down to about 29.50 per ounce... hmm, let's see... 200x2,000x16x$25=a hell of a lot of money minus expenses...

Silver, unlike gold is fairly reactive chemically. It all depends on how it was stored originally and how it sunk, but I'd suspect that some 10% may have been chemically altered. It can be refined back into silver, unless it was changed into soluble salts - many silver salts are. Anyway, there is at least 150 -180 million dollars worth of silver after costs. Now, if it were gold, they really have struck it big!
