New seafloor mining exploration voyage in Solomon Islands
#1

A major seafloor mining exploration voyage is due to get under way in Solomon Islands at the end of the month.

Nautilus Minerals is set to become the first company in the world to start commercial seafloor mining when its operations begin in Papua New Guinea in 2018.

It's now set to look for copper and gold in massive sulphide deposits around seafloor hot vents in waters off San Cristobel and the Santa Cruz islands.

It will also be doing more exploration in Tonga later in the year.
