At the Ocean Conference of the United Nations, Seas At Risk, supported by its 34 members and Mission Blue, BLOOM, the Deep Sea Mining Campaign and Earthworks, called on the international community to stop deep sea mining in its tracks.
Mr Smashing makes a comeback with a deep sea mining disco love song. Destroying the deep sea to get metals for our throw-away mobile phones and other e-devices? Seas At Risk thinks it is better to step up efforts on the circular economy – make devices repairable, re-usable, recyclable. Use mineral resources more efficiently and keep them in the economy loop instead of wasting them. In our leaflet ‘Deep sea mining? Stop and think!’ you can read why we think deep sea mining has no place in the world’s Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Let’s focus on creating a circular economy instead! http://www.seas-at-risk.org/images/pdf/Infographics/DSM-PDF-leaflet-light.pdf
Plans for the world's first deep sea mine are taking shape in the waters off Papua New Guinea. The ocean floor is rich in gold, copper and other minerals in big demand around the world. But some scientists warn that digging up the seabed will destroy marine life, and Sir David Attenborough is among those objecting. BBC News science editor David Shukman reports.
Brad Baker and his company Odyssey Marine Exploration, have found and recovered hundreds of millions of dollars of gold and silver from the deep sea. Beyond that, recent discoveries have lead to mining projects worldwide that will be environmentally better and provide resources for future generations. In this brief talk, he shares the excitement of exploration, as well as some of the promise. Mr. Baker serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors at Odyssey Marine Exploration (NASDAQ:OMEX), and also as CEO of Nexus Biometrics, Inc., a fingerprint biometrics company he founded in 2004.

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. While 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.

The world's first project to mine the seabed for minerals is expected to begin operations in Papua New Guinea in 2019. Experimental in nature, this mining ventured by Canadian company Nautilus Minerals is in charge of the Solwara 1 project located in the Bismarck Sea (approximately 30 kilometers from the coast of New Ireland and 50 kilometers from the coast of East New Britain. There have been reports of impacts from exploratory mining in the area affecting indigenous coastal communities of the Bismarck Sea. In this Voices from the Last Frontier documentary, His Eminence, Cardinal Sir John Ribat calls for a ban on experimental seabed mining in PNG and the Pacific. He challenges us to be responsible stewards to protect our common home. For more information about the Voices from the Last ...

PNG's 13th Mining and Petroleum Conference commenced this week in Sydney, Australia. This conference is aiming at not only showcasing existing opportunities for destructive investment, but also highlighting PNG’s status as the first country in the world to try the untested and potentially devastating industry of sea bed mining. A group of young protesters called Youngsolwarans in protest had this to share...
