How a Canadian company will mine the sea bed near Papua New Guinea
 
01:12
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 richer in gold and copper than ores found on land. Mike Johnston, chief executive of Nautilus Minerals told the BBC "that a temperature probe left in place for 18 months was found to have 'high grade copper all over it'." Nautilus announced in April that it had completed its bulk cutter, the first component of its Seafloor Production Tools system, which will be used to mine the seabed. Nautilus also approximately 500,000 square kilometres of "highly prospective exploration acreage" in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga, as well as in international waters in the eastern Pacific, the company said in a press release. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

TechKnow - Deep sea gold rush
 
23:43
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 unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems?

Follow us: Website: http://inhabitants-tv.org/ Facebook: facebook.com/inhabitantstv/ YouTube: youtube.com/channel/UCt0fB6C18nwzRwdudiC8sGg instagram: inhabitants_tv #inhabitants Written by anthropologist Stefan Helmreich, What is Deep Sea Mining? Episode 2: Deep Frontiers is a brief history about knowledge of the deep sea and its resources. It highlights the ambiguity of this history, as depictions of the deep changed throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Today, this knowledge informs discussions about the commercialization of biological and geological resources, with the deep sea fast becoming a zone of international dispute, opening up a debate about sustainable practices at sea. What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode web series dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This web series addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied. Stefan Helmreich is Professor of Anthropology at MIT. He is the author of Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas, and, most recently, of Sounding the Limits of Life: Essays in the Anthropology of Biology and Beyond (Princeton University Press, 2016). His essays have appeared in Critical Inquiry, Representations, American Anthropologist, Cabinet, and The Wire. What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining.

Experimental Seabed Mining - Coming to a Coastline Near YOU!

Donate: http://actnowpng.org/donate Share on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1l93esG Share on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1l93kk6 Papua New Guinea has already suffered some of the worlds worst mining disasters . Foreign companies have polluted our rivers, destroyed communities and caused a violent civil war. Now Nautilus Minerals wants to dig up the seafloor in a new experimental mining operation. But, as the government has already acknowledged, communities all across PNG are saying they do not want to be part of this experiment. But this issue is of much wider significance than just Solwara 1 and Papua New Guinea. There is already exploration for similar mines all across the Pacific region and in the Indian ocean. Numerous countries have sanctioned the exploration without understanding the full potential environmental impacts and how it could impact on local communities. NGOs and communities are calling for a moratorium on this type of mining, like that already in place in Vanuatu, until there are proper studies on the environmental and social costs. The timing of the video is very poignant as the PNG government struggles with the issue of whether to put $118 million of tax payers money into the Solwara 1 mine: money the NGOs say could be better spent on improving health and education facilities for communities in PNG. Governments needs to do the right thing for their people rather than looking after these foreign companies that destroy and impoverish us. Governments must reject seabed mining and invest instead in health, education and agriculture for the long-term benefit of our communities.

Copper Mining Moves From Land to Sea
 
05:27
Nautilus Minerals is borrowing a page from the oil and gas industry’s playbook, and is looking to expand into deep sea mining for minerals like copper. Nautilus Minerals is hoping to become the first deep sea mining company, using technology that is similar to that used by the energy industry. CEO Mike Johnston said minerals from the seafloor are of much higher grade than they are on land. ‘The high grades make it a very competitive operation, in terms of cost, ‘ said Johnston. ‘The grade for copper is ten times what it is on average on land so it’s the grade that makes the whole thing work. It allows you to have a tight very compact footprint from an environmental point of view that’s great because we have lower CO2 emissions and we have almost no waste,’ he added. Johnston said copper would be shipped directly to China, where demand is high. Johnston said China is the largest consumer of copper in the world, accounting for about 40% of all consumption. He says he’s not worried about any potential economic slowdown in China and says the company currently has a contract with China’s largest copper producer. Nautilus’ mine is scheduled to be up and running in the first quarter of 2018. At the moment, the company is building the mining vessel in China, which will then be brought to Papua New Guinea, where the mining will take place.

THE LAST FRONTIER
 
07:31
The Last Frontier, a documentary series focusing on experimental seabed mining, an imminent venture in the Pacific. This documentary presents the situation in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Despite the experimental nature and a dearth of knowledge about hydrothermal vents and deep sea ecosystems, Nautilus Minerals Inc. is already prospecting PNG’s Bismarck Sea with an aim to begin mining as early as 2019. This film highlights a general failure by authorities to incorporate sufficient environmental protections, as well as the norm of free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC) for indigenous peoples of the Bismarck Sea. These are the voices of the guardians protecting the Last Frontier.

24:47
Papua New Guinea’s National Forest Authority has big plans to develop forest plantation. It seems an ambitious plan – 800, 000 hectares of commercial tree species by 2050. Is this achievable? And what obstacles are there, that may hinder fulfilling this target? Also on this episode, PNG has been a leader in the extractive industry, and this has been evident in recent years. The world’s first deep sea mining project, Solwara 1, being developed by Nautilus Minerals off the coast of East New Britain and New Ireland Provinces, has been in the spotlight right from the very start, and now, the Pacific Council of Churches has weighed in on that issue. - visit us at http://www.emtv.com.pg/ for the latest news...

NZ Government Seabed Mining Agenda Exposed! Phil McCabe http://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/show-archives/nz-government-seabed-mining-agenda-exposed-phil-mccabe Phil McGabe www.kasm.org.nz After opening up New Zealand's regional parks for mining, The government realised that harvesting minerals from the sea floor is the new game in town. International momentum and attention from businesses and government have spurred this move, Currently, there are many countries looking at programs for exploitation. New Zealand holds the 5th largest marine estate in the world, Up to 200 Nautical Miles away from the land is marked as it's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) Accounting for roughly 1% of the planet's surface, So the potential mining interests and associated risks are voluminous to say the least. New Zealand isn't the first country to "OK" Seabed mining, In the case of Papua New Guinea, The Community didn’t know about it, Until AFTER they’d already consented. And the process for approval here, isn't exactly above water either, so to speak.

NO Experimenting on us
 
04:20
If this will cost us our lives, our children's and our children's children's lives and so on, is it still called development to you? The people of Karkar Island, the biggest Island in the Madang Province of Papua New Guinea want to know why the PNG Government is choosing money over their lives by allowing the Canadian-owned company 'Nautilus' to turn the sea bed upside down. The people are pissed and want the Mining Minister Byron Chan, who received more than 24, 000 signatures from around the country petitioned to the government against Experimental Seabed Mining to answer. Of the 24, 000, more than 9, 000 signatures are the Karkar Islanders'.

Forced 'Eviction' by Nautilus
 
03:30
The Danu people of the West Coast of New Ireland Province in Papua New Guinea are currently being forced to move out of their village by the Canadian-owned company, Nautilus. The people said, around 15 men came to the village in the 'night' and forced them to sign some papers, regardless of questions posed at them by most of the elderly people about what those papers are about and what their signatures would mean. "They said the company (Nautilus) sent them, and if we don't sign then we'll loose our chances of getting the benefits from the project. We didn't agreed to this Experimental Seabed Mining to happen, what makes them think we'll agree to move away from our village that we've lived in for centuries?" said a Danu Village Clan Leader.
