Red Sea Treasure Hunt To Begin

The Sudan Tribune is reporting that Sudan and Saudi Arabia have signed a deal for the joint exploration of the Red Sea in hopes of finding a treasure of gold, silver and other precious metals believed to be deposited there. The new deal revives a prior agreement dating back to 1974 under which Sudan had the lead role in pursuing the treasure. Since then the project has languished but this new agreement signals a renewed interest by the two Nations to spur private investment in an exploration and recovery mission in the Red Sea. If only Moses were still around, this job would be an easy one. Arrrrgh.
