Workshop on Mining of CRFCs and PSDs – Technological and Economic Considerations

31 Jul 2006 - 4 Aug 2006

Kingston, Jamaica


Agenda | Participants | Summary | Proceedings

The International Seabed Authority has scheduled a workshop on technical and economic considerations for mining cobalt rich ferromanganese crusts (CRFCs) and polymetallic sulphides (PSDs) resources of the international seabed area (“the Area”) in Kingston, Jamaica, from 31 July to 4 August 2006.

The background document incorporates relevant excerpts from workshop papers on cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts occurrences and deposits together with relevant prospecting and exploration maps extracted from data held by the Authority’s central data repository.

Because of its relatively large size, it is suggested that the background document be downloaded to your hard-drive first. (right click on the link and select Save Target As)
