The company Ocean Infinity, the same that allowed to locate the Argentine submarine ARA San Juan, made the discovery.

The French authorities confirmed the finding of “La Minerve”, a submarine that disappeared in 1968 with its 52 occupants on board and whose trail was completely lost until Monday.

The maritime vehicle was found split in three off the coast of France, being a milestone for family members and managers of Gauls maritime teams.

Florence Parly, Minister of the Armed Forces of France, called the event “a success, a relief and a technical feat. I think of the families that have been waiting for this moment for so long.”

Those in charge of finding the remains were workers of the Ocean Infinity company, which allowed the location of the Argentine submarine ARA San Juan.

The French ship was 2,370 meters deep and even maintained characteristics of the moment in which it undertook its journey by the sea.

It was record that the submarine sank on January 27, 1968,  in just four minutes, starting a long search that just ended this week.

Regarding the possible causes of the outcome, the authorities indicated that an accident would be the main reason.
