TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Seafarer Exploration Corp. (OTCQB:SFRX) ), a company focused on the archaeologically-sensitive exploration, research, and recovery of historic shipwrecks, announced today that the Board of Trustees of the State of Florida has granted them a 5 year Sovereignty Submerged Lands Cultural Resource Recovery Easement for excavation of a shipwreck site located off of Juno Beach, FL. This important announcement completes the fourth and final requirement for Seafarer to continue its testing, exploration, and recovery work of the very promising shipwreck excavation at the Juno Beach site.
"I want to start by expressing my sincere gratitude to Ms. Sue Jones and others at the Bureau of Public Land Administration for their diligent and prompt delivery of the easement instrument," said Kyle Kennedy, CEO of Seafarer. "We are very encouraged by some of the materials we uncovered from the Juno Beach Site last week including some jade, ballast stones, musket balls and cannon balls. With the state's help, we also continue to pursue our permit for another site located along the coast of Florida and we continue to research and target site number 4."
Seafarer also received eligibility from the Depository Trust Co. (DTC) for Deposit Withdrawal At Custodian (DWAC) for its common stock. Mr. Kennedy stated, "We are very pleased with both of these important advances to our infrastructure and growth. I am especially proud of the hard work of our transfer agent ClearTrust LLC and specifically Kyla Kennedy who never gave up on us to get this approval."
Kara Kennedy, founder of ClearTrust LLC, added, "We are pleased with Seafarer's acceptance into the DWAC program and thank DTC for their time and consideration during the evaluation process. We are glad we could be instrumental in procuring this upgrade. The improvement for Seafarer's common stock will mean faster deposit time, less expensive broker deposit fees, and a wider range of brokers to choose from; all good for Seafarer shareholders."
