On December 12 2001 the Cuban newspaper, "Granma" reported that during the previous summer, ADC had filmed ruins of a possible 'Lost City' submerged off the coast of the Guanahacabibes Peninsula, on the western tip of Cuba in the Yucatan Channel. It quoted ocean engineer, Paulina Zelitsky, of ADC as cautioning that the nature of their discovery
is not yet fully understood, and that they would return in January 2002 to conduct further investigations:
"It's a marvelous structure which could possibly have been a great urban center ... However, it would be
completely irresponsible to to say what it is, before having all the evidence."

"That footage confirms the presence of large blocks of granite in circular and perpendicular formations.
Most of the blocks, between two and five meters long, were not covered. Others were
covered with sediment and the area’s fine white sand."
One of the many 'sidescan sonar' images of part of the megalithic complex discovered by ADC. Using a growing array
of sophisticated underwater equipment, which includes the ROV, such images are facinating archæologists and
geologists around the world. As ADC's investigations progress, it will be interesting to see if any of the
roadways, or the axis orientation of any of the major structures, points in the direction of the 'Old North Pole', which during the last Ice Age was at 60° North, 73° West,
in the Hudson's Bay area ...
"We believe that much of the significant archaeology of the future will be discovered in the little-explored world's oceans and will greatly expand our understanding of the enormous antiquity of human civilization."
