Deep-Seabed Mining is the Next Frontier in the Environmental Plunder of Planet Earth

'Deep sea explorers continue to discover new forms of sea life in the depths of the world’s ocean, but our oceans are being pursued by mining companies as a huge potential market for minerals extraction.

“The next frontier of mining is going to be in the ocean, because there’s a lot of these rare earth elements and minerals in the sea.” [Source]


The seabed contains potentially trillions of dollars worth of gold alone, as well as copper, cobalt, and many other minerals useful in the production of technology and consumer items. The process is highly controversial, and activists have been working for years to stop this before it starts. Essentially, giant remote-operated equipment is sent to the sea floor to grind up and disintegrate the bed, and material is pumped to containment vessels at the surface.

Considering that the first 10-15 centimeters of the ocean floor is where the vast majority of deep-sea life lives, processes like this on an industrial scale would spell disaster for life there. While deep-sea mining has been of interest to mining companies for decades, since 2000 a small number of exploration contracts have been permitted around the world, but the first actual operating license is about to be granted for mining the seas in Papua New Guinea. This would signal the beginning of a race to carve out mining contracts for states and companies, dividing up an enormous portion of the earth which has until now been relatively untouched.'
