Information that at least three vessels were deliberately sunk near Whyalla has not been verified. Although no specific details or documentation have yet been located it has been suggested that a barge was sunk 7.7 miles from shore, an unknown vessel was sunk 13.8 miles from Black Point and the tug Leeton was deliberately sunk in 22m of water, 6.6 miles offshore.

Further research and survey work is necessary to identify and document vessel remains near Whyalla.
