On July 8th, COE Resources, in collaboration with Trinomics and IHC Mining, organized a breakfast session, entitled “Deep Sea Mining: Hitting the Bottom or Taking Off?” The session was well attended by representatives from industry, government, civil society and knowledge institutes.

Deep sea mining is on the move. After years of talking, exploitation legislation is now being put in place and the first projects are on the verge of becoming operational. In the session, participants discussed the strategic relevance and economic potential of deep sea mining, the geopolitical context, legal constraints as well as the environmental concerns.
