Here in Papua New Guinea, one well-financed, first-mover company is
about to pioneer deep sea mining. And that will mean dispatching a
fleet of giant remote-operated robotic miners 5,000 feet below the
surface to harvest the riches scattered across ocean floor. These
mammoth underwater vehicles look like they’ve been hauled off the set
of a sci-fi film—think Avatar meets The Abyss. And they'll be dredging
up ... manganese nodules—metal-rich clumps—awaiting extraction in
near-limitless supply.
