  • How a Canadian company will mine the sea bed near Papua New Guinea

    Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far ric...

Mike Johnston, chief executive of Nautilus Minerals told the BBC "that a temperature probe left in place for 18 months was found to have 'high grade copper all over it'." Nautilus announced in April that it had completed its bulk cutter, the first component of its Seafloor Production Tools system, which will be used to mine the seabed. Nautilus also approximately 500,000 square kilometres of "highly prospective exploration acreage" in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga, as well as in international waters in the eastern Pacific, the company said in a press release.

From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years.

Based on this review it identifies a significant potential for massive sulphides in inactive hydrothermal vents and sediments to solve global resource scarcities. The research aims to provide background on seabed exploitation and to apply a holistic systems engineering approach to develop general guidelines for sustainable seabed mining of polymetallic sulphides and a new concept and solutions for the Atlantis II Deep deposit in the Red Sea. The research methodology adpted will start with acquiring a broader academic and industrial view on sustainable seabed mining through online survey and expert interviews on seabed mining. The experts are chosen according to their knowledge in one or more of the dimensions of seabed mining introduced in the research framework. The Nautilus Minerals case is also reviewd for lessons learned for seabed mining and the presented concept in particular with identification of challaenges and issues. Therafter, a new concept and site specific assessment for Atlantis II Deep is developed. The research undertaken in this study provides a new perspective regarding the sustainable seabed mining. The main contributions of this research are the development of extensive guidelines for key issues in sustainable seabed mining as well as a new concept for seabed mining involving engineering systems, environmental impact, economical benefits, logistics chain supply and legal aspects.

Hughes told the media that the ship's purpose was to extract manganese nodules from the ocean floor. This marine geology cover story became surprisingly influential, spurring many others to examine the idea. But in sworn testimony in United States district court proceedings and in appearances before government agencies, Global Marine executives and others associated with Hughes Glomar Explorer project unanimously maintained that the ship could not be used in any economically viable ocean mineral operation.

To be sure, Nautilus Minerals (TSX:NUS) is one of the more interesting mining companies out there. It's project, Solwara 1, lies on the sea floor near Papua New Guinea, where the company is hoping to mine high grade copper and gold deposits. To find out a bit more about underwater mining, Resource Investing News had a chat with Mike Johnston, CEO of Nautilus, at the 2015 PDAC conference in Toronto. In the interview below, Johnston discusses what makes Solwara 1 so high grade, and speaks to questions about the environmental impacts of underwater mining. He also speaks about New Zealand's recent rejection of underwater mining projects, and about Nautilus's partnership with the Papua New Guinean government. Overall, it was interesting to get some insight into the world of underwater mining and how Nautilus intends for its project to work.

The ocean floor is the last great frontier for the resources sector. But what could be the world's first deep sea gold and copper mine is mired in controversy. The battlelines are drawn, one and a half kilometres under the Bismarck Sea off Papua New Guinea. Canadian miner Nautilus Minerals says risks are low but locals say it will pollute the water on which they they rely so heavily.

SAGRES Project is an innovative and disruptive approach developed by ISQ that focus on the conception and validation of an algorithm that supports decision to prospection and exploration (P&E) activities related with deep sea mineral (DSM) resources based on satellite information, and complemented by in-situ data, including CMEMS data. CMEMS model about the ocean physical, chemical and biological parameters together with other satellite and in-situ data are used. For instance, the provision of data on temperature, salinity, and concentration of oxygen, nitrate, phosphate and chlorophyll in sea water at several depth ranges and fairly high resolution grids are important to better constraint and enhance the forecast capability of the SAGRES Project algorithm.

The video shows scientific ocean drilling and coring technology. Scientific Deep Sea Drilling Vessel CHIKYU is the state-of-the-art research vessel exploring the deep earth by sampling, measuring and monitoring operated by JAMSTEC. The Earth deep below the seafloor contains a unique record of our planet's evolution and structure. Scientists study the sub-seafloor to better understand Earth's components, history, and phenomena. This research helps us answer questions about fundamental aspects of our planet such as the environment, the biosphere, solid earth cycles, and geodynamics. 00:00 The process of deep sea drilling 04:04 Rotary drilling 05:23 Riser drilling system 07:30 Coring procedure 10:38 Core sample processing More about the research vessel CHIKYU, http://www.jamstec.go.jp/chikyu/ (C) JAMSTEC
