From www.uboat.net (still up and running)

U-864 to undergo further research before possible raising
Posted on: 6 Mar 2010 at 20:52.

The U-864, sunk 9 Feb, 1945 in the North Sea west of Bergen, Norway while carrying massive amounts of toxic Mercury, is to undergo further research before it will be raised as the former research was deemed not good enough.

The new target for possible raising of the wreck is 2012.

Mercury is used in a lot of processes and products, including thermometers and thermostats.
