Some are still fairly intact and some have failed to break loose from their anchors.
After the Second World War, Canada and Britain declared much of their chemical and biological stockpiles as surplus and dumped them both inland and in the ocean. There is an estimated one billion pounds of mustard gas and related chemical weapons munitions at the bottom of the world's oceans, but more insidiously, there is a large number of dumpsites that were never officially recorded.

Its my understanding that on the whole that those mines still intact are also inactive, given the degradation of the components/explosives?
