Seminar: The emerging â€œGolden Eraâ€ of mineral development in the PacificFebruary 20, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Honolulu Campus, 1601 East-West Road, John A. Burns Hall, Room 3121/3125 (3rd floor)
The discovery of deep-sea gold deposits (black smokers) in the south Pacific, a renewed interest in the manganese nodules of the mid-pacific and major advances in deep-sea mining may foretell a â€œgolden eraâ€ of deep ocean mineral development. However, here are significant environmental issues, such as â€œCasper the Ghostâ€ and others, that need to be addressed. The real potential may be in the industrial and pharmaceutical value of hydrothermal vents.
