Deep Sea Mining

Deep sea mining is a process, retrieval of minerals from the floor of ocean. For full scale operations there are two type of mineral extraction techniques are there: continuous line bucket system (CLB) and hydraulic suction system. The preferable way to collect the nodule is continuous line bucket system (CLB). The sites of ocean mining are very large areas of poly-metallic nodules and the hydrothermal vents below the ocean surface is about 1,400-3,700 m. The vents retrieving the Sulphide deposits which contain the metals like gold, silver, copper, cobalt, manganese and zinc.
