Canada based mining company Nautilus Mining has plans launch the world’s first deep-sea mining operation. The underwater mining business is starting to grow and the seas holds more than 2/3 of the world´s mineral resources (gold, copper, silver, zinc and other metals).
Deep Green resources plan to do deep-sea-mining outside Hawaii and Nordic Mining in Norway has plans to start mining outside Jan Mayen and Svalbard.
This is seriously threatening the ocean life thats why the mining companies work hard to convince the public that the environmental issues are being sufficiently addressed. The hope for the nature is to get the costal nations to protect the environment by strict restrictions.
Please stop the deep-sea-mining before it starts:
