ATLANTA, GEORGIA--September 20, 2004-- RMS Titanic, Inc. (SOST-OTC: BB) today announced the completion of its seventh research and recovery expedition that rescued over 75 important historic artifacts from the Titanic wreck-site. The Company will continue its recovery work by planning future expeditions to the Titanic wreck-site as it intends to maintain its sole and exclusive rights as Salvor-in Possession as ordered by the U.S. Federal District Court.

Expedition 2004 departed from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on August 25, 2004 and for the first time allowed the Company to rely exclusively on a deep ocean Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) that permitted the expedition to utilize round-the-clock underwater operations.

The mission objectives for Expedition 2004, in addition to recovering important historical objects and identifying artifacts for future recovery, were to inspect the wreck-site for alleged harm caused by previous visitors and, if necessary, the Company would establish guidelines for future visitation.

Arnie Geller, Expedition Leader and Company President said, “I am pleased to report that Expedition 2004 accomplished all of its objectives in addition to discovering a new debris field where remnants of the First Class A la Carte Restaurant were found. As a result, several important artifacts were located and those rescued will certainly fascinate visitors attending the Company’s public exhibition program.”

RMS Titanic, Inc. is the only company permitted by law to recover objects from the wreck of the Titanic. The Company was granted salvor-in-possession rights to the wreck of the Titanic by a United States federal court in 1994 and has conducted seven research and recovery expeditions to the Titanic wreck site and recovered approximately 6000 artifacts.
