The lost island in Gulf of México

Bermeja is name of mystery. For centuries, the word is written in maps and navigation of the Gulf of Mexico near a small island, narrow and long, off the coast of Yucatan. But since 12 years ago no one can find.
A scientific expedition of the National Autonomous University of Mexico last week to search the sea where, at the beginning of the sixteenth century, was sighted a rock color of fire, which put the name of Vermeja (Red).
The technical Mexicans used aircraft and ships with probes to photograph the seabed at a depth of over 1500 meters, but the verdict was disturbing: there is no island or traces of it in 223 square kilometers of the area examined. And no one seems to have existed in the past five-thousand and three hundred years.
The mystery in itself sufficient to raise the curiosity. But for the Mexican Government, that island has a missing value more tangible. Bermeja allow Mexico to claim sovereignty over a further 30 miles (55 kilometers) of sea and become, almost exclusively, with the royalties from the Dona Hoyos, one of the most important oil reserves in the world.
In June 2000, Mexico and the U.S. signed a treaty in which they undertook to maintain closed the tap of the black gold in that area that is subject of dispute between the two countries. But the moratorium ends in 2010. Without the island Bermeja, the last the border of Mexico are the islands of Alacranes, and Hoyos de Dona, which are 22.5 billion barrels of crude oil to remove, are under the American flag. |notícia|Menu
