• 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...

  • Deep Sea Ocean Mining - HUGHES GLOMAR EXPLORER Project Azorian 21050

    This historic film shows techniques used to conduct deep ocean mining of the sea floor, which were pioneered in the 1960s. The potential for this type of mining (particularly of manganese nodules) was never fully realized. Ironically, the program did end up providing the cover for the USNS Hughes Glomar Explorer (T-AG-193), a deep-sea drillship platform built for the United States Central Intelligence Agency Special Activities Division secret operation Project Azorian to recover the sunken Soviet submarine K-129, lost in April 1968. Hughes Glomar Explorer (HGE), as the ship was called at the time, was built between 1973 and 1974, by Sun Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. for more than US$350 million at the direction of Howard Hughes for use by his company, Global Marine Development Inc.[4] This ...

  • Copper Mining Moves From Land to Sea

    Nautilus Minerals is borrowing a page from the oil and gas industry’s playbook, and is looking to expand into deep sea mining for minerals like copper. Nautilus Minerals is hoping to become the first deep sea mining company, using technology that is similar to that used by the energy industry. CEO Mike Johnston said minerals from the seafloor are of much higher grade than they are on land. ‘The high grades make it a very competitive operation, in terms of cost, ‘ said Johnston. ‘The grade for copper is ten times what it is on average on land so it’s the grade that makes the whole thing work. It allows you to have a tight very compact footprint from an environmental point of view that’s great because we have lower CO2 emissions and we have almost no waste,’ he added.

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 richer in gold and copper than ores found on land. 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.

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.

The timing of the video is very poignant as the PNG government struggles with the issue of whether to put $118 million of tax payers money into the Solwara 1 mine: money the NGOs say could be better spent on improving health and education facilities for communities in PNG. Governments needs to do the right thing for their people rather than looking after these foreign companies that destroy and impoverish us. Governments must reject seabed mining and invest instead in health, education and agriculture for the long-term benefit of our communities.

Since the field links engineering, economics, environmental, legal and supply chain research, it demands for research from a systems point of view. This implies the application of a holistic sustainability framework of to analyse the feasibility of engineering systems. The research at hand aims to close this gap by developing such a framework and providing a review of seabed resources. 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.

Nautilus Minerals is borrowing a page from the oil and gas industry’s playbook, and is looking to expand into deep sea mining for minerals like copper. Nautilus Minerals is hoping to become the first deep sea mining company, using technology that is similar to that used by the energy industry. CEO Mike Johnston said minerals from the seafloor are of much higher grade than they are on land. ‘The high grades make it a very competitive operation, in terms of cost, ‘ said Johnston. ‘The grade for copper is ten times what it is on average on land so it’s the grade that makes the whole thing work. It allows you to have a tight very compact footprint from an environmental point of view that’s great because we have lower CO2 emissions and we have almost no waste,’ he added. Johnston said copper would be shipped directly to China, where demand is high. Johnston said China is the largest consumer of copper in the world, accounting for about 40% of all consumption. He says he’s not worried about any potential economic slowdown in China and says the company currently has a contract with China’s largest copper producer. Nautilus’ mine is scheduled to be up and running in the first quarter of 2018. At the moment, the company is building the mining vessel in China, which will then be brought to Papua New Guinea, where the mining will take place.

The world’s first ever deep sea mining operation is scheduled to begin offshore from the Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea in early 2018. In this short film we explore how the two Pacific Island nations of Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu are working together with their communities to manage the future opportunities and impacts associated with this emerging industry. W​hile deep sea minerals could provide much needed revenue for several Pacific Island nations, questions remain about the impacts of mining on the marine environment and the many communities that depend on it for their livelihoods.
