    One theory being floated, published in the Shipwreck Log today, is that the ore shifted, causing the vessel to lose balance and capsize.
    An oil slick detected 2300 miles off the coast indicated that the 1056-foot vessel had probably sunk, according to a statement issued by the Uruguayan Navy.
