Aussie exploration firm claims it may have found MH370 debris
An Australia based marine exploration company has reportedly claimed that it may have located the debris of the missing Malaysia Airline MH370, some 3,000 miles away from the target area.
The Adelaide-based company GeoResonance has implied that the authorities could be looking for the wreckage of the plane in the wrong place.
The company says its own private research has identified elements on the ocean floor in the Bay of Bengal consistent with material from a plane, Mirror reports.
Using images obtained from satellites and aircraft, GeoResonance's search covered 2million sq km of the possible crash site.
Scientists used more than 20 different technologies and directed their focus to north of MH370's last point of contact, to analyse the data including a nuclear reactor.
David Pope, the company's spokesperson said that the technology that it used was originally designed to find nuclear warheads, submarines, adding that the team in the Ukraine decided it should try and help.
Pope further said that the wreckage wasn't there prior to the disappearance of the MH370, adding that while the company is not deducing that the image is definitely that of the missing plane, it is a lead that should be followed up.
Meanwhile, another spokesman, Pavel Kursa, added that the company identified chemical elements and materials, including aluminium, titanium, copper, steel alloys among other materials that make up a Boeing 777, at the Bay of Bengal spot, the report adds.
The search for the missing Malaysia Airline plane has extended beyond six weeks and despite extensive searches in the Indian Ocean, no trace of the wreckage of the jetliner has been found as of yet.
