Marine Mining for Critical Minerals

Tuesday, 2 May
Technical / Poster Session
The mining of minerals from the sea floor will provide an important new source of critical minerals needed for the growing green economy. Marine mining for critical minerals has rapidly advanced in the last five years with pilot mining projects being undertaken at depth in the Pacific Clarion Clipperton Zone (CCZ). The United States is again looking at developing minerals within its EEZ while other countries are looking at massive sulfides deposits. These developments are helping to drive a new billion dollar offshore/onshore industry and are resulting in the development of new systems to explore, develop, monitor, power, and operate these dynamic operations. This session will focus on these systems.
