Rising demand for minerals has led to a resurgence of interest in exploration of mineral resources located on the seabed. Such resources normally refer to three different mineral resources: seafloor massive sulfides (SMS) around hydrothermal vents, cobalt-rich crusts (CRC) on the flanks of seamounts or fields of manganese polymetallic nodules on the abyssal plains. Each mineral type has its own characteristics such as water depth, topography, shape, abundance, grade etc., and requires different mining methods. This report summarizes the status of the technology development for mining of each mineral, and introduces the available technologies that are readily applicable to the deep sea mining.
