4 - Governing deep seabed mining
=== Abstract === Deep-sea mining is the process of retrieving mineral deposits from the deep seabed, the area of the seabed below 200m. Whilst there has been interest in the deep seabed since the 1970s, there has been growing interest in recent years due to the depleting deposits from terrestrial sources of metals such as manganese, coupled with the increasing demand for the same metals in green technologies such as wind turbines. Each resource type will have specific challenges, solutions, technologies and mining techniques. In essence, all will require seafloor vehicles to crush and collect the material which will then be fed to the support vessel. However, as the deep sea remains understudied and poorly understood, there are many gaps in our understanding of its biodiversity and ecosystems. This makes it difficult to thoroughly assess the potential impacts of deep-sea mining and to put in place adequate safeguards to protect the marine environment. As there are likely to be impacts beyond our current knowledge, the International Seabed Authority (ISA) is operating a dual mandate of promoting the development of deep-sea minerals whilst ensuring that this development is not harmful to the environment. As such, they are currently going through the process of consultation with the international community (government representatives, scientific community, private contractors etc.) to ensure that the marine life is adequately protected. This presentation will discuss why deep seabed mining is gaining traction and review the governance to date looking at what is already in place and where the gaps are. === Speaker: David Carlin, Ocean Governance SIG - https://www.imarest.org/special-interest-groups/ocean-governance === David is the Science Director at CEFAS, and has worked primarily on science, evidence and advice in support of the regulation of activities in the marine environment.

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth | The Economist
Watch the latest in the Ocean series - How sea cucumbers can help the ocean: https://youtu.be/VCsD7NcQV1w The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

Experimental Seabed Mining - Coming to a Coastline Near YOU!
Donate: http://actnowpng.org/donate Share on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1l93esG Share on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1l93kk6 Papua New Guinea has already suffered some of the worlds worst mining disasters . Foreign companies have polluted our rivers, destroyed communities and caused a violent civil war. Now Nautilus Minerals wants to dig up the seafloor in a new experimental mining operation. But, as the government has already acknowledged, communities all across PNG are saying they do not want to be part of this experiment. But this issue is of much wider significance than just Solwara 1 and Papua New Guinea. There is already exploration for similar mines all across the Pacific region and in the Indian ocean. Numerous countries have sanctioned the exploration without understanding the full potential environmental impacts and how it could impact on local communities. NGOs and communities are calling for a moratorium on this type of mining, like that already in place in Vanuatu, until there are proper studies on the environmental and social costs. The timing of the video is very poignant as the PNG government struggles with the issue of whether to put $118 million of tax payers money into the Solwara 1 mine: money the NGOs say could be better spent on improving health and education facilities for communities in PNG. Governments needs to do the right thing for their people rather than looking after these foreign companies that destroy and impoverish us. Governments must reject seabed mining and invest instead in health, education and agriculture for the long-term benefit of our communities.

Researchers have returned with more than 5000 samples and footage of never-before-seen undersea volcanoes after a three-week voyage in waters off the Bay of Plenty and northeast along the Kermadec Ridge. The NIWA scientists studied four different undersea habitats - seamounts, hydrothermal vents, continental slope and canyons within a 10,000sqkm area. The work is being done to improve understanding of the vulnerability of deep-sea communities to human activities such as seabed drilling, fishing and mining. Voyage leader Dr Malcolm Clark said the trip confirmed that environments in the different deep sea habitats varied in their characteristics, with communities of fauna differing even from other communities that were nearby. "The implication is that the exploitation of one seamount could have an effect that is not the same as the seamount close by," he said. The specimens collected almost certainly included something new, as typically almost 10 per cent of samples caught in the deep sea were new to science or new to New Zealand. Canyons which had not been surveyed before had also been sampled extensively, and it was expected many new discoveries would be made once the samples and photographic data were analysed. The seamounts investigated included Tangaroa, about 200km northeast of Whakatane and part of the Kermadec Ridge. It comes to within about 900 metres of the surface of the ocean, starting from a depth below sea level of about 2000 metres. Specimens including barnacles, mussels, and shrimps taken from Tangaroa seamount were specific to sites with hydrothermal venting, proving the seamount was an active volcano, Clark said. Fifty submarine volcanoes stretch along the Kermadec Ridge, which extends almost 1500km to the edge of the New Zealand EEZ, northeast of the Kermadec Islands. The most southerly of the large seamounts along the ridge is about 100km northeast of Whakatane. Clark said the community on Tangaroa seamount was not unique, but differed from those found on some neighbouring seamounts. Some seamounts had been trawled for orange roughy, and there was also interest in the possibility of mining seamounts in the Kermadec Ridge for a mineral resource called seafloor massive sulphides, which contained high concentrations of copper and zinc, along with gold and silver. Life was plentiful on the seamounts, particularly around the hydrothermal vents, Clark said. The seamounts were hard, rocky places, elevated from the seafloor. The faster currents moving around them brought food particles for animals to eat. In the canyons, which came out from Tauranga and Whakatane, samples had been taken down to around 1500 metres. The canyons could be 200 to 300 metres deeper than the surrounding seafloor and 2km to 3km wide. "They are quite narrow and they channel a lot of water and soft sediment which comes off the land and near-shore coastal areas. They act as almost undersea rivers," Clark said. Little life was seen on the surface of the soft sediment on the seafloor of the canyons, but within the sediment were large numbers and many different types of worms. Samples were collected from the canyon floor using a corer which fired tubes up to 50cm into the seafloor. The tubes were then sealed and returned to the surface. The aim was to have analysis of the samples brought back from the trip, along with those from a survey carried out on the Hikurangi Margin near Cook Strait in 2010, completed within the year.

NIOZ-STW: Study on the possible consequences of Deep Sea Mining on the ecosystem near the Azores
(Nederlandse tekst na Engels) Can valuable mineral resources on the ocean floor be responsibly mined? To answer this question, we need to know much more about the deep-sea environments where these minerals occur in high concentrations. In April 2015, an international team of marine scientists sailed with the Dutch research vessel 'Pelagia' of Royal NIOZ to a site southwest of the Azores. Their mission: to collect data and perform experiments around a deep-sea hydrothermal vent field located on the Mid Atlantic Ridge. Sulfide minerals precipitating from the hydrothermal exhausts locally form massive sulfide deposits at the seafloor. In places where hydrothermal activity has ceased, these mineral deposits may become economically viable mining sites. Scientific understanding of the key geological, oceanographic and biological processes at those sites is of pivotal importance for policy makers to weigh the potential gain of valuable minerals against the potential environmental risks of deep sea mining. NL: Kunnen waardevolle mineralen op de bodem van de oceaan op een verantwoorde manier gewonnen worden? Om deze vraag te kunnen beantwoorden moeten we eerst veel meer te weten komen over de diepzeemilieus waar deze mineralen gevonden worden. In april 2015 vertrok een internationaal team van wetenschappers met het NIOZ onderzoeksschip 'Pelagia' naar een gebied ten zuidwesten van de Azoren. Hun missie: data verzamelen en experimenten uitvoeren rond diepzee-heetwaterbronnen op de Mid Atlantische Rug. Rondom de heetwaterbronnen zijn in de loop van de tijd metaalrijke mineraalafzettingen gevormd met potentieel economische waarde, maar ook wordt er een uniek ecosysteem aangetroffen met bijzondere levensvormen die aangepast zijn aan het extreme milieu. Afgraven van mineralen rond actieve heetwaterbronnen lijkt daarom vanuit milieu-oogpunt een onverantwoorde keuze, maar zou mogelijk wel plaats kunnen vinden op plaatsen waar de hydrothermale activiteit is uitgedoofd. Voor een verantwoorde beleidsafweging van economisch voordeel en mogelijke schade aan het diepzeemilieu is een goed begrip van de fysische, chemische, biologische en geologische sleutelprocessen absoluut onmisbaar.

This video is mirrored from http://www.youtube.com/user/nautilusnoel Thanks for the great info mate. We get one chance at this,.. In October 2012, the United States based Anadarko Petroleum Corporation in partnership with Australian based Origin Energy intend to start deep-sea oil-drilling in the Canterbury Basin (exploration permit PEP 38262), about 60 km off the coast of Dunedin. Anadarko had a 25% share in the project that caused the Deepwater Horizon (BP) oil spill, Gulf of Mexico in 2010, spilling over 600,000 tonnes of oil into the sea. Deep-sea oil-drilling is of major concern in the Otago region (and New Zealand) because of the alarming environmental and economic risks that face our people, land and sea. Global oil giants are not welcome to drill in our coastal waters. There are currently no adequate protection measures in place to protect our environment from a deep sea oil disaster. New Zealand will lose 95% of the profits gained from drilling our seabed, yet we will bear 100% of the cost when something goes wrong. History tells us that it is only a matter of time before we pay the price. Surely it's not worth taking such a risk? What do we risk by allowing these oil companies to drill thousands of kilometers into our seabed? 1) Our wildlife - The Otago marine environment includes many unique and fragile ecosystems, and is home to many species, including seabirds, shorebirds, whales, dolphins, fur seals and sea lions. A deep sea oil disaster will leave our local marine flora and fauna vulnerable to the toxic effects of oil. 2) Our fishing industry - Commercial seafood exports consistently rank as New Zealand's fourth or fifth largest export earner, while recreational fishing is one New Zealand's most popular activities. A deep sea oil disaster will directly impact our local fisheries resulting in both the loss of valuable fish stocks and the loss of industry jobs. 3) Our tourism industry - The pristine coastlines and unique wildlife of Otago attract tens of thousands of international tourists annually, injecting an economic boost into the region. A deep sea oil disaster will have a pivotal role in tourists' decisions to visit the Otago region. 4) Our recreational water sports - Otago offers unparalleled opportunities for ocean sports such as surfing, kayaking, wind surfing, jet skiing, diving and boating. A deep sea oil disaster will invariably impact many local businesses, organisations, and individuals who enjoy Otago's waters. 5) Our assets - We should be protecting our national assets, not selling them off to be exploited by foreign corporations, or endangering them by oil drilling without adequate safety measures. 6) Our climate - The climate change impacts of fossil fuels are disastrous. New Zealand should be investing in clean energy solutions instead of investing in extracting the last drops of oil from the ends of the earth. We should be climate pioneers not fossil fools. 7) Our coastal way of life - This is a fundamental part of being a kiwi, and we must protect it for ourselves, and for generations to come.

Perhaps politics might actually catch on if Gannaway were doing the singing [OP-ED], instead of John Ashcroft's barbershop quartet. It's a thought. But until the Republican or Democratic National Convention is converted into a Broadway musical, we'll have to make do with Daniel. And that's going to be just fine for fans of indie folk pop with a message." - Indie-Music "...The great aspect of the album [SUMMER STORM] is that each song's arrangement maintains a minimalistic nature, which shows a discipline and a depth of understanding on Gannaway's part. Underneath the ukulele, the cruising drums and harmonic supporting bass grooves provide an all around easy and easily recommendable listen..." - NZ Musician Magazine "...Down to earth and laid back, it has none of the musical tension of trying too hard or the injection of false emotions. Suburban folky and bohemian chic, it [darling one year] ties up agreeably layered and distorted vocals into an angst-ridden, quirky pop as catchy as The Strokes but easily as mysteriously engaging as James Keenan Maynard..." - Indie-Music "...[Bound and Suburban] like walking alone on the beach at night and seeing Jim Morrison and Jeff Buckley strumming and singing at the water's edge..." - Indie-Music "...Herein lies the essence of Bootlegged at the Temple: simply an audience, a musician, and a quiet venue... - no hype... In context with Daniel's previous two albums - FINE BY ME and flashback* - and subsequent release 'Bound and Suburban', 'Bootlegged' is a departure, which provides the listener a greater perspective on all of his work. Bootlegged is a great live album, which, over time, becomes as much a voyage of discovery and inspiration for the listener as for the musician himself." - Justin Walsh
