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.

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 richer in gold and copper than ores found on land. 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. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Deep down, way deep down, there's something stirring - something very, very valuable. It's a race to the bottom - to the bottom of the oceans. It is Deep Sea Mining.

In the 1870 Jules Verne classic "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", underwater explorer Captain Nemo predicted the mining of the ocean floor's mineral bounty - zinc, iron, silver and gold. India is catching up with that only now, as it prepares to unearth treasures down below, aiming to boost its economy. The floor of the world's seas is scattered with vast beds of black potato-shaped polymetallic nodules comprising copper, nickel, cobalt, manganese, iron and rare earth elements. These natural goodies are key to making modern gadgets, from smartphones and laptops to pacemakers, hybrid cars and solar panels. As expanding technology and infrastructure fuel global demand for these resources - whose supply is dwindling fast onshore - more and more countries, including manufacturing powerhouses India and China, are eyeing the ocean.

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.

Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "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. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems?

The world's oceans belong to all of us, but we aren't protecting to them. The minerals sitting around on the bottom of the sea could help us to build the world's next generation of electric cars and solar panels. Managed properly, there could be more than enough fish to feed us forever. But if we carry on the way we have in recent years, there is an alternative future - one where sea levels rise, causing untold costs; where fish stocks run out; where coral reefs die and the ocean's capacity to keep absorbing our carbon dioxide diminishes.

International momentum and attention from businesses and government have spurred this move, Currently, there are many countries looking at programs for exploitation. New Zealand holds the 5th largest marine estate in the world, Up to 200 Nautical Miles away from the land is marked as it's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) Accounting for roughly 1% of the planet's surface, So the potential mining interests and associated risks are voluminous to say the least. New Zealand isn't the first country to "OK" Seabed mining, In the case of Papua New Guinea, The Community didn’t know about it, Until AFTER they’d already consented.

Several Pacific Island nations are eagerly eyeing up the potential economic benefits from valuable deep sea mineral resources that have been discovered within their maritime territories. With a recent surge in commercial interest the Pacific has now become the centre of an international debate over whether the sustainable economic benefits for Pacific Islanders will outweigh the environmental risks of harvesting these precious metals from the bottom of the sea. This short film examines the issue from a number of key perspectives including; anti-deep sea mining NGO's; politicians; government agencies; deep sea mining companies and; the Secretariat of the Pacific Community.

Lots of people on certain parts of continents don’t have access to fresh water from rivers or lakes, and this crisis is getting more and more serious each year. Every 7th person on the planet suffers from a lack of access to clean drinkable water right now. And some experts say that as the world population doubles by 2030, that statistic will skyrocket to one-half! Actually, 97% of all the water on the planet has always been briny, and you can safely assume that it’s this way for a reason. …So magically pushing a button to make it fresh water in this hypothetical situation would be devastating for life on this planet. And here's why. Other videos you might like: What If Megalodon Sharks Didn't Go Extinct? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh6pVbaEJTw& What If You Were the Last Person on Earth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uGAINMAiL0& What If You Poured Some Water On The Sun? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GOPAxEBDro TIMESTAMPS: Why the ocean is salty 1:44 Was seawater originally fresh? 3:08 Food chains would be destroyed 4:15 How the climate would change 5:36 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Rivers constantly bring fresh water to the oceans. You’d think these sources would dilute the sea and decrease the salt content. But in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Water in rivers is also brackish – it’s just 70 times less salty than in the ocean. - Each year 4 billion tons of salt are carried into the ocean just from rivers alone. If you keep doing that for the billions of years this planet has been in existence, you can imagine how much salt would gather there. - Sea salt derives from a hydrochloric acid, while river salts are from carbonic acid. More scientists today believe that the oceans have been salty from the start because of volcanic activity. - The most obvious consequence is that the innumerable forms of marine life can only exist in briny water – they wouldn’t survive in fresh water. - Without them, we’d lose this source of food, which would have a serious impact on not only the countries that are highly dependent on their fishery sectors, but also those they export to! - Like animals, algae are capable of feeding on organic material in their environment. Like plants, they take part in photosynthesis. They play a huge role in sustaining life because of this. - Ocean currents make the climate on earth a lot more tolerable and suitable for living. Take salt from the oceans, and the currents will disappear. Salt water has a much lower freezing temperature too. Without the salt, bigger parts of the oceans would turn to ice during the winter. - Plus, all that salt would eventually start appearing right back in the oceans! Minerals from the Earth’s crust would start dissolving into the sea again, and oceanic floor vents would also pump minerals into the water.

More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

Watch the latest in the Ocean series - This is the most over-fished sea in the world: https://youtu.be/oaW2rqJjXvs 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.

Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu is keen on exploring the minerals within the Philippine Rise. He has instructed the Mines and Geological Bureau to fast track this exploration. The Philippine Rise is a 25 million shallow continental shelf east of the main island of Luzon. The Dept. of Environment under Secretary Cimatu is keen on knowing what minerals and rocks can be found in the Philippine Rise formerly known as Benham Rise. Of particular interst to DENR is the exploration of polymetallic sulphide. (The Mines and Geosciences Bureau is now getting ready to conduct further exploration and surveys at the Philippine Rise, this time to look for manganese nodules and sulphides like gold and copper. The Bureau is also looking for possible rare earths and methane ice at the Rise. A long-term survey program is now in the works using the Bureau’s research vessel, the RPS Explorer. The new Mines and Geological Bureau Survey Division OIC Chief is Dr. Yolanda Aguilar. The DENR has requested Dr. Aguilar to prepare a program proposal to find out if the RPS Explorer is fit to conduct the necessary explorations which could cover 150-250 nautical miles. There is also the question of funding for these explorations which the Mines Bureau must now face. The MGB has proposed to the Dept. of Budget and Management to conduct offshore mineral exploration work, sedimentation and fossil studies in the area by April 2018.

China’s unmanned submarine vehicle Qianlong III, pictured, could help to drive a subsea exploration programme and herald the arrival of an AI colony on the South China Sea bed, Chinese scientists and officials say The trench reaches a depth of 17,716 ft (5,400m) and one of the world’s biggest quake zones. Share this article Share 14 shares President Xi Jinping, pictured, claims that China will make the world's first ever underwater Artificial Intelligence colony on the South China sea bed. The base has been described as a 'deep sea Atlantis' and will be used for unmanned submarine science and defence operations. Chinese officials and scientists familiar with the plans say that the deep sea station will analyse samples from the sea bed and send reports to the surface.

Artificial Intelligence in the South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- by Jonathan Hall , December 28, 2018 The South China Sea is host to a number of countries vying for control in the area. Attempting to develop new tactics and technologies to swing the balance in its favor, China may have found its key advantage – artificial intelligence (AI). Described as an “enabling” technology, in the same way as the combustion engine or electricity, applications range from deep-sea exploration and international investment, to cybersecurity and combat operations. Deep-Sea Operations Chinese scientists are currently developing plans for the first-ever AI-run colony on Earth. Designed for unmanned submarine science and defense operations, the project started at the Chinese Academy of Sciences following a visit from President Xi Jinping in April to the deep-sea research institute in Sanya, Hainan province. Costing taxpayers roughly $160 million, a location under review is the Manila Trench, the only place in the South China Sea with a depth exceeding 5,000 meters. Located near the Scarborough Shoal, where China and the Philippines nearly sparked conflict two years ago, the base provides China with a humanitarian pretext for placing strategically useful assets in the region. Resting along the meeting point between the Eurasian and Pacific continental plates, the trench is a prime target for recording seismic activity. In one of the largest quake zones in the world, China can likely push their agenda under the guise of a “win-win” scenario. The ability to monitor potential earthquakes and tsunamis would be to the benefit of emergency planners in each country. However, China’s ability to launch antagonistic operations and track foreign vessels – would not. Maritime Drones Following the president’s April visit, in July the Chinese Academy of Sciences began pursuing plans for a fleet of unmanned autonomous underwater submarines, or “Extra Large Underwat... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
