The international forum for deep sea mining professionals. As we move into an era of mining the deep-ocean floor, the world’s most remote environment, mining companies are working on overcoming the perceived challenges and developing island nations are watching with interest. The centre has drawn up a five-year plan with a cost of ₹ crore to mining, researching and studying about the ocean floor that can help in forming solid decision on climate change and develop a desalination plant, powered by tidal energy and a submersible vehicle that can explore depths of at least 6, m (20, ft).Minister responsible: Dr. Harsh Vardhan. Ferromanganese nodules/crusts and seafloor massive sulfides are a unique feature of the deep-ocean seafloor. These deep-ocean mineral deposits are windows into Earth's processes, revealing clues to the evolution of seawater and ancient ore-forming processes.

    Seafloor massive sulfide deposits or SMS deposits, are modern equivalents of ancient volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits or VMS deposits. The term has been coined by mineral explorers to differentiate the modern deposit from the ancient. SMS deposits were first recognized during the exploration of the deep oceans and the mid ocean ridge spreading centers in the .

Deep sea mining is a mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents at 1, to 3, metres (4, to 12, ft) below the ocean’s surface.

The vents create globular or massive sulfide deposits, which contain valuable metals such as silver, gold. Mining operations in deeper waters have led to a very different results: When investors tried about 40 years ago to retrieve potato-sized manganese nodules scattered on the ocean floor, almost half a billion dollars worth of prospecting couldn’t make their efforts profitable.

There are significant benefits gained from ocean floor mining, especially when the practice is compared to land-based mining operations, said Nautilus Minerals. The company’s Solwara 1 project, located off the shores of Papua New Guinea, recently received approval for the project after several years of disputes with the Papua New Guinea.
