A Mini Sub Uncovered A Mysterious Object From Lake Ontario

A team of real-life treasure hunters recently set out to uncover something that had been lost years ago. Their goal? Unearth something that had been lost since the Cold War. Back in the 1950s, the Canadian government eagerly sought to destroy any trace of this object’s existence. Despite their attempts, the item was found still intact, sitting at the bottom of Lake Ontario. This is the story of the object and the people who found it.

They Didn’t Know If They’d Find It

In August 2017, a team of Canadian researchers at OEX Recovery Group Incorporated decided to go look for something they’d heard might have been lost years ago in Lake Ontario. Project Raise the Arrow was born, its purpose being to find whatever valuables lay at the bottom of Lake Ontario.

The plan was to search some areas that were likely to have the object in question. With a lot of money on the line, the team gambled losing their funding if they couldn’t recover it in time.
