In December 2018, a team from the Silentworld Foundation and the Australian National Maritime Museum located a mystery shipwreck at Boot Reef off Australia's far north-east coast. Archival research narrowed its possible identity to one of a small handful of wrecks from the early 19th century - foremost among them a site first reported in 1891, which, according to legend, contained a hoard of silver coins that came to be known as the 'Jardine Treasure'. Authors Kieran Hosty, Dr James Hunter, Irini Malliaros and Paul Hundley were members of the expedition.
