Some lucky pirates made off with a huge stash of loot, as a Russian ship carrying 700 tons of gold ore has gone missing on its trip from Neral to Feklistov Island in the Sea of Okhotsk.

The company that hired the vessel, Polymetal, refused to estimate the value of the missing gold ore.

The ship, along with its nine-man crew, went missing shortly after a distress call put out on Sunday.

There are reports that the ship’s captain has sold the gold on board, but these are unconfirmed.
