About

As the need for critical minerals is now expected to be greater than the supply from the mining industry and recycling, Norway is in an excellent position to become a leader in the exploration for deep-sea minerals. The race has started, and at this conference, we will address challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

For whom?

Industry professionals, environmental groups, policymakers, the geoscience community, and other stakeholders who are eager to learn more about an emerging global industry and how Norway is preparing for the 1st licensing round for deep-sea minerals.

 

Why?

The need for additional mineral resources makes the deep sea an exciting new arena for exploration. We create a meeting place for all interested partners to exchange knowledge and make new acquaintances.

DEEP SEA MINING - STATE OF THE ART

Moderated by Anette Broch Mathisen Tvedt, CEO and Co-Founder at Adepth Minerals

Vast quantities of metal-rich mineral deposits have been found in areas of the deep sea. This has catalysed the development of technologies to extract resources necessary for The Green Shift. While the International Seabed Authority (ISA) has granted exploration licenses in various locations, in particular in the Pacific Ocean, several countries are planning to initiate exploration within their own jurisdiction. Norway being one of them.

DEEP SEA DEPOSITS

Moderated by Alden Denny, Senior Geologist at Adepth Minerals

There are three broad types of deep sea areas where metal-rich mineral deposits are found: 1) Abyssal plains with extensive deposits of manganese nodules or polymetallic nodules, 2) Seamounts with rock surfaces on which cobalt and other metals have accumulated over tens of millions of years, and 3) Mid-ocean ridges with chimney-shaped ore deposits with significant concentrations of metals including gold, silver, copper and zinc.

Moderated by Lars Kullerud at GRID Arendal

Scientists have uncovered a previously unknown wealth of life in the dark depths of the ocean. Cold-water corals, sponge fields and a multitude of other ecosystems are home to mysterious creatures found nowhere else on Earth. At the same time, land mining is under attack due to the social cost experienced in many countries.
