  • 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...

It is strewn with deposits rich in gold, copper, manganese, cobalt, and other resources that supply our electronics, green technology, and other vital tools like medical imaging machines. Since no one has tried mining the seafloor yet, much remains uncertain about how it will work — or how much it will disturb the creatures that make their homes at the bottom of the ocean. http://www.nbcnews.com/mach/innovation/these-fearsome-robots-will-bring-mining-deep-ocean-n724901?cid=public-rss_20170227 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

"What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. 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.

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.

Koyo USA has created new technology to gently filter out the excess sea salt, while maintaining the essential minerals to produce this pure and exhilarating drinking water. The Deep Sea Water used for MaHaLo bottled drinking water is very old. It takes between 1,200 and 2,000 years for the water to travel from the North Atlantic Ocean through the freezing Arctic currents, under the vast glaciers of Greenland, where it gathers ancient minerals that leach down from the ice. Then it flows around and back down toward the deep channels of the Pacific Ocean. It is there, at the Water Rejuvenation Zone just off the coast of Kona, Hawaii, that the water is at its very purest. This is why Koyo USA placed its processing and bottling plants on the island of Hawaii. MaHaLo Hawaii Deep Sea® Water is drawn from 3,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

The ocean is a deeply mystical , beautifully breathtaking, perfect place. But it does come with some downsides. Here are 12 Magnificent Deep Water Facts Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5.Wow, That’s Hot Because the seafloor lies on top of the layer in the Earth’s crust where magma is made, certain parts of it contain hydrothermal vents. Such vents are a scientific result of lava erupting from the sea floor, and they are typically found near underwater volcanoes. These vents aren’t like those of your typical jacuzzi tub vents- they can reach temperatures up to six hundred and sixty two degrees high- enough to melt led. These could create problems for deep water explorers, but oceanographers are able to get an idea of where the vents are located through the hot water plumes that arise into the sea. While it’s wondrous to think about these vents, it’s also fascinating to know that they play a part in keeping the ocean’s ecosystem healthy. The high temperatures of the water aid in removing chemical compounds from the water, like magnesium and sulfate. 4. Marine Mining An exciting type of robot has been developed in order to mine precious metals like gold, copper, manganese, and others from the bottom of the sea floor. There are both positive and negative effects to these seafloor mining robots, developed by Canadian Mining firm Nautilus Minerals. On the plus side, they could prevent us from continuing to deplete our natural resources and lead us to the development of more eco friendly technology. However, there is rising concern that they will disrupt ecosystems of the ocean. These things will definitely have no problem sinking to the ground, as they are reportedly 200 tons each and the size of a “small house”. Things like population growth have led analysts to believe that human society will have a vastly greater need for metals in future years, but environmentalists are fervently against it. Some scientists have even raised concerns that the mining vehicles may accidentally upturn dangerous deep sea floor sediments , and that harmful chemicals could end up in the waves of populated beaches. They aren’t set to launch until 2019, so if you are in favor or in protest, speak now or forever hold your peace! 3.Gold Rush Maybe the idea of mining at the bottom of the ocean isn’t such a bad idea after all. Research by the National Ocean Service may just hold more than twenty million tons of dissolved and undissolved gold. They added that if all the gold in the world’s oceans was successfully mined, every one would have nine whole pounds of gold. That seems pretty insane, but it may not be worth it. The gold is so diluted that for every litre of seawater, there is thirteen billionths of gold in it. Pretty tiny, wouldn’t you agree? Miners would have to travel two miles underwater, and on top of that, dig even deeper into the rocks of the ocean floor. 2.Embrace the Darkness Because the light of the sun can “only penetrate about three hundred thirty feet” into the surface of the ocean, much of the remains in total darkness. And, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, sunlight can only travel down as deep as six hundred feet. As a result, our twelve thousand and four hundred feet deep oceans are in a state of sort of terrifying darkness. As in, there are “definitely no light bulbs or candles to light down there darkness”. Which basically means that most of our planet is actually dark all of the time. One of the darkest zones of the ocean is the aphotic, of “midnight” zone. It lies only three thousand two hundred and eighty feet below sea level, which really doesn’t seem like that much, because it’s around equal to a sixth of a mile. We hope you’ve enjoyed- swimming- around in all this ocean knowledge, but we really enjoy your comments! Here are just a few from today. We’ll keep -fishing- for them…. 1.Watch Out For That Water The ocean is a deeply mystical , beautifully breathtaking, perfect place. But it does come with some downsides. Every year, tons and tons of human waste gets dumped into the ocean. Containments of this waste range anywhere from empty bottles to infected needles-ew! What’s more, is that cruise ships are responsible for dumping over one BILLION gallons of sewage into the ocean every year. The fact of the matter is, is that the ocean is FILLED with millions of disease causing microbes and bacteria. How much bacteria, may you ask? Er, just a tinge- if you consider 10 to 100 million viruses per teaspoon of ocean water a tinge. Although the ocean’s ecosystem has a natural way of cleansing itself, studies have shown more and more disease causing agents are in our Earth’s water. Such things can contaminate fish, which can eventually harm humans if consumed. The point is, we should all work to keep our oceans clean and safe!

Not too long ago, scientists studying the ocean made a fascinating discovery that has helped us better understand our planet Earth. Down in the deep and dark waters, they found hot springs on the ocean floor releasing warm and mineral-rich fluids – these are called hydrothermal vents.

We're depleting many of our land-based stores of minerals, and remote though it is, the bottom of the ocean is a likelier source of precious minerals than asteroids. It is strewn with deposits rich in gold, copper, manganese, cobalt, and other resources that supply our electronics, green technology, and other vital tools like medical imaging machines. Since no one has tried mining the seafloor yet, much remains uncertain about how it will work — or how much it will disturb the creatures that make their homes at the bottom of the ocean. http://www.nbcnews.com/mach/innovation/these-fearsome-robots-will-bring-mining-deep-ocean-n724901?cid=public-rss_20170227 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
