Designed by Marin Teknikk and built by Kleven Verft, Norway, the US$157 million vessel will enable Debmarine Namibia, a 50/50 joint venture between the Government of the Republic of Namibia and De Beers Group, to explore diamond deposits and secure diamond supply in the country well into the future
Gold alone found on the sea floor is estimated to be worth $150 trn. But the cost to the planet of extracting it could be severe.

Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an une...

Marine diamond mining vessel Peace in Africa The Mafuta is a diamond-mining ship owned and operated by De Beers in the western coast of South Africa. A diamond rush is a period of feverish migration of workers to an area that has had a discovery of diamonds. Major diamond rushes took place in the late 19th . Ship channel:youtube channel for ships.

The ocean has a wealth of resources. From food, to travel, to pharmaceutical needs, and to energy, the ocean has always provided for mankind. And now, mankind is turning to the ocean for minerals and metals needed for the technology we use in our everyday lives. An exploration into the emerging industry of deep sea mining leads to more questions than answers. Read more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/underwater-mining-pacific-ocean
Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far ric...
Diamonds are Namibia's biggest source of income -- but the number of precious stones under the Namib desert is dwindling. Now, diamond mining giant De Beers has developed a pioneering diamond boat, that can pluck the stones from under the Atlantic Ocean.
In recognition of a substantial contribution to technical progress and the betterment of society, the MARL SubSea Drill revolutionized offshore subsea drilling with an ability to obtain core samples at depths as great as 3,000 metres. MARL Technologies Inc. built the drill for Gregg Drilling and Testing Inc., making use of existing robotics and telemetry from Schilling Robotics. It marks the first time a high-functioning robotic arm has been used on a sea-bottom coring drill.
Plans for the world's first deep sea mine are taking shape in the waters off Papua New Guinea. The ocean floor is rich in gold, copper and other minerals in big demand around the world. But some scientists warn that digging up the seabed will destroy marine life, and Sir David Attenborough is among those objecting. BBC News science editor David Shukman reports.
Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

Minefinders owns and operates the multi million ounce Dolores gold and silver mine located in northern Mexico. Opportunities for the continued growth of the Company are driven by a pipeline of advanced and grass-roots exploration properties and the development expertise to bring a new mine into production. The company is also focused on finding potential acquisitions that would be accretive to its shareholders.
Nissan’s Around View Monitor (AVM) technology, a building block of its autonomous drive technology is helping remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) search for natural resources in the Earth’s oceans. The joint development with the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) and Topy Industries, Ltd., a pioneer in underwater crawler robots, aims to uncover mysteries of the ocean and further aid in deep sea research.
