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.
Join us as we highlight our sea floor production vessels and show and describe how our first location, Solwara1, will work. This video is full of information and explores in's and out's of how all of our equipment will work together to mine the sea floor.
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...

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

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.

Activists talk about the proposed deep sea mining operations by Nautilus.
To be sure, Nautilus Minerals (TSX:NUS) is one of the more interesting mining companies out there. It's project, Solwara 1, lies on the sea floor near Papua New Guinea, where the company is hoping to mine high grade copper and gold deposits. To find out a bit more about underwater mining, Resource Investing News had a chat with Mike Johnston, CEO of Nautilus, at the 2015 PDAC conference in Toronto. In the interview below, Johnston discusses what makes Solwara 1 so high grade, and speaks to questions about the environmental impacts of underwater mining. He also speaks about New Zealand's recent rejection of underwater mining projects, and about Nautilus's partnership with the Papua New Guinean government. Overall, it was interesting to get some insight into the world of underwater mining ...

Sitting with Kitco News at the BMO Metals & Mining Conference, New Gold chairman Randall Oliphant said he thinks the revival in gold is ‘real’ this time. Focusing on central bank gold buying, he said he thinks this will help move gold prices higher, driven by the People’s Bank of China’s affinity for the yellow metal. ‘China is still hugely underweight gold,’ he noted. ‘Central banks have now been buying for 7 straight years and they keep buying. We seem to be firing on all cylinders.’ Don’t forget to sign up for Kitco News’ Weekly Roundup – comes out every Friday to recap the hottest stories & videos of the week: http://www.kitco.com/newsletter Join the conversation @ The Kitco Forums and be part of the premier online community for precious metals investors: http://kitcomm.com -- Or jo...
