The wreck of the USS Helena (who will incidentally be joining WoWs soon (tm)) has been found at a depth of 860m near the Solomons.


She sank during the Battle of Kula Gulf in 1943 where she was hit by Japanese long lances, but not before expending a huge amount of shells and sinking the destroyer Niizuki in the same battle. 168 US sailors died with her.

860m is good.

 

Too deep for scrounging operations to get at the low-background steel.
