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
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...

Scientists fear that even before one of the last frontiers of exploration, the ocean deep, has been properly studied it will already have been exploited by commercial deep-sea mining looking for rare metal and minerals on the ocean floor, leaving its unique ecosystems badly damaged.

Activists talk about the proposed deep sea mining operations by Nautilus.
This film documents Project Mohole, an ambitious attempt to drill through the Earth's crust into the Mohorovičić discontinuity, and to provide an Earth science complement to the high-profile Space Race. The project was initially led by the American Miscellaneous Society with funding from the National Science Foundation. The goal was to use technology developed for the petroleum industry to penetrate deeper into the Earth's crust than ever before. A converted U.S. Navy ship, CUSK ONE, was used in the program. Mohole inadvertently contributed to another project led by corporate sponsor Global Marine, the Jennifer Project in which the Glomar Explorer (a larger platform than Cusk) was used in an attempt to retrieve a Soviet submarine. Phase One was executed in spring 1961. Five holes were dr...
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.
