Subsea Mining Moves to Continental Shelf

Mining in the deep sea is technically very challenging and at present not economically feasible. However, deposits in coastal areas beneath the shallow, more accessible continental shelf could help to meet the growing demand for mineral resources. This is the conclusion of a group of researchers from GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany, in a contribution in the internationally renowned magazine 'Nature Geoscience'. The demand for raw materials is rising continuously, forcing mining companies to use lower-grade ores and to explore at greater depths. This could lead to a decline in production in the coming decades. Many industrialised... (read more)
