Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an une...
Gold alone found on the sea floor is estimated to be worth $150 trn. But the cost to the planet of extracting it could be severe.

Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far ric...
Scientists fear that even before one of the last frontiers of exploration, the ocean deep, has been properly studied it will already have been exploited by commercial deep-sea mining looking for rare euronews knowledge brings you a fresh mix of the world's most interesting know-hows, directly from space and sci-tech experts.

The ocean has a wealth of resources. From food, to travel, to pharmaceutical needs, and to energy, the ocean has always provided for mankind. And now, mankind is turning to the ocean for minerals and metals needed for the technology we use in our everyday lives. An exploration into the emerging industry of deep sea mining leads to more questions than answers. Read more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/underwater-mining-pacific-ocean

Some spots keep giving! Back to the Sand-Bars I went with the mission of sniffing out the other deposits I felt were there. With the trusty Croc Fluid bed sluice, my Minlab pans and Grizzly in tow I quickly found a fresh deposit and begun the monumental task of moving all that overburden! That’s the thing about working sandbars, digging. So much digging! However, the results speak for themselves. Hit the right untouched bar and you can pull grams off the bedrock like I did a few days ago in a very short time. In other news I cover another of the prizes for Marchs fundraiser for Beyond Blue, I offer you a chance to win some gold, learn a new riddle (much harder than the last one) and all this other stuff below!

Subsea Tooling Services (STS), an Aberdeen-shire based company offering a diverse range of subsea equipment, recently completed final tests of their new Predator Subsea Dredger at our open-water site in Fort William. Watch video from the trial and read more about how the subsea tests were achieved. Proving the Predator Subsea Dredger Their main objective was to prove that the Predator Subsea Dredger was as efficient, if not better, than the other dredgers that are currently on the market. As this dredging system is a new concept in the world market, STS needed to prove its capabilities to their clients and confirm their development tests by filming the dredger in action in conditions such as it will be used in offshore. The subsea trials more than exceeded their expectations in terms o...
