Raw materials from the depths of the sea
The deep sea, i.e. regions with a water depth of more than 200 meters, accounts for about 65 percent of the entire earth's surface. And there is already a run on the deep sea. Autonomous robots and deep diving submarines could make it possible in the future to lift treasures such as nickel, cobalt, aluminium or copper. Products such as smartphones could be built with raw materials from the deep sea. But lead, gold and silver are also to be found.
India is planning to explore an area of 75,000 square kilometres in the Indian Ocean. Germany also has a licence to search for polymetallic sulphides and cobalt-rich crusts in the Atlantic. The license comes from the Seabed Authority ISA. In 2025 the commercial mining of raw materials is to begin. China searches the Pacific for minerals and Brazil is allowed to search the southern Atlantic.
The ambitions in the deep sea naturally call environmentalists on the plan. The richness of the species seems to be endangered for some. Finally, sediment drilling and deep mining are interventions that can disrupt or even destroy habitats.
It will be easier to mine the valuable raw materials using conventional mining methods, at least in the next few years. Like Panoro Minerals - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298773. With two advanced copper-gold projects in Peru, Cotabambas (copper, gold, silver) and Antilla (copper, molybdenum), as well as two early stage projects, Kusiorcco (copper) and Humamantata (copper), the course should be set for successful progress.
GoldMining - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298668 - also has a significant portfolio of gold and copper projects in Peru, Canada and Colombia. In addition, there are large gold projects in Brazil and a stake in a uranium project in Canada.
