Seabed Mining

Seabed Mining

Seabed Mining (SBM) is a growing industrial field that involves extracting submerged minerals and deposits from the sea floor. To date, mining for sand, tin and diamonds has been generally limited to shallow coastal waters. Seabed Mining (SBM) should be distinguish from Deep Sea Mining (DSM) that occurs at a depth of 200 meters and greater.
