    • The gold was believed to be headed to Germany when the ship sank in 1939
    • Advanced Marine Services hopes to cut a hole in the ship to remove the box

    The SS Minden was scuttled - or purposefully sunken - approximately 120 miles southeast of Iceland in September 1939

    Advanced Marine Services has applied to the Icelandic government in hopes of gaining permission to cut a hole in the ship to remove the box.

    The treasure hunters, who believe the haul belongs to the finder of the box, want to bring the contents back to Britain, according to The Sun.

    Earlier this year, the group was accused of looking for the wreckage of the German cargo ship without proper licensing.


    Authorities became aware of the firm after a stationary Norwegian research boat Seabed Constructor, rented by the firm, was spotted in Icelandic waters.

    According to Iceland Monitor, when the coastguard asked the crew why they were there, they gave 'vague and different explanations', prompting the coastguard to instruct them to dock at a pier Reykjavik before sending in police to question the crew.

    Georg Lárusson, director of the Icelandic Coastguard, told the website they did not have a permit to search in Icelandic waters.

    When the Minden was spotted by British cruisers HMS Calypso (pictured) and HMS Dunedin, Adolf Hitler ordered Minden's captain to scuttle - or deliberately sink - the ship so the Royal Navy wouldn't seize the cargo.
