Seabed Mining: The 30 People Who Could Decide the Fate of ...

Sep 06, 2017 · The HMS Challenger dredged up polymetallic nodules during an expedition nearly 150 years ago, but it wasn't until 1977 that scientists discovered hydrothermal vents on the Pacific seabed. Vent fields spew superheated sulfide-laded fluids that, over the eons, have laid down deposits of copper, gold, iron, silver and zinc on the sea floor.

Will 2020 Be The Year For Subsea Mining?

Polymetallic Nodules were the first of the seafloor minerals to be discovered. These nodules are of commercial interest for their high manganese content. In one area of the North Pacific Ocean seabed known as the Clarion Clipper Zone, the International Seabed Authority (ISA) estimates there are over 20 billion tons of these nodules.

Commercial-scale mining for polymetallic nodules could have a major impact on the deep-sea environment, but the effects of these mining activities on deep-sea ecosystems are very poorly known. The first commercial test mining for polymetallic nodules was carried out in 1970. Since then a number of small-scale commercial test mining or scientific disturbance studies have been carried out. Here ...
