China seeks cooperation with India for sea mining. May 07 2015With quickening oceanic development and increasing mineral exploration in the Indian Ocean China is eager to cooperate with India on deep seabed mining according to the China Ocean Mineral Resource R D Association China and India are both developing countries and contractors with the International Seabed Authority so we have a lot in
Deep sea mining is a mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean floor. Ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents at 1,400 to 3,700 metres (4,600 to 12,100 ft) below the ocean’s surface.
In 2016, it completed China's first sea trial of a deep-sea mining system. It has made an active effort to apply for exploration and mining rights of international seabed. This is the first time for China to obtain an international seabed mining contract through an enterprise.
18/10/2019· NC: What contributions has China made to international research on seabed exploration? LF: I want to highlight China’s self-motivated contributions, in particular on environmental preservation aspects for seabed mining exploration. Through the ISA platform, China has proposed quite a number of constructive suggestions, some of which have been
Seabed Mining () is an experimental industrial field which involves extracting submerged minerals and deposits from the sea floor. There are interests both for and against seabed mining, however, the science around the environmental impact of is incomplete and unproven.
No commercial-scale deep-ocean mining has yet taken place, but the following developments point to current significant global activity: As of February 2018, the International Seabed Authority (ISA) had approved 26 contracts for exploration on the international seabed.
As part of GSR’s efforts to explore the feasibility of deep sea polymetallic nodule mining, GSR recently submitted the prior EIS to the International Seabed Authority (ISA) and has decided to publish the assessment in the interests of stakeholder transparency. The ISA is holding its key council meeting this week in Jamaica.
• Ocean cannot be shifted elsewhere for easy access to seabed minerals. • Significant distance (i.e. water depth) separates the mineral deposit from the mining platform. • Need to develop robust seabed mining tools including the ore lifting system to ensure environmentally sound mining practice. • Mining and hoisting processes will
The mining support vessel follows the mining route of the seafloor mining tools, picking up the about potato-sized nodules from the seafloor. By the time the International Seabed Authority was in place in 1994, interest in the extraction of nodules waned. Three

Deep sea mineral exploration is one of the most tightly regulated activities in the ocean. Under international law, exploration, as distinct from marine scientific research (which is open to all States), may only be undertaken under a contract with the International Seabed Authority (ISA), an intergovernmental organization based in Jamaica and established by the 1982 United Nations
The international legal framework for deep sea mining: a primer . In a radical departure from the tradition of open access and freedom of the high seas, the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) declared the seabed area beyond national jurisdiction (the Area) and its mineral resources as the “common heritage of mankind”, to be administered for the benefit of mankind
Because the CCZ is outside national jurisdiction, deep-sea mining in this region is regulated by the International Seabed Authority . Currently, contracts for mining exploration in the CCZ have been granted to 16 deep-sea mining contractors, with exploration areas covering approximately 1 million square kilometers (400,000 square miles).
