The international forum for deep sea mining professionals

As the international deep sea mining community move ever closer to mining the deep-ocean floor, industry stakeholders from developing island nations and ocean regulators, to commercial deep sea miners and subsea technology companies come together annually to meet at the world's first and premier Deep Sea Mining Summit.

It is through collaboration that developments have been made over the last 40 years. Advances in technology and the development of a legislative framework by the International Seabed Authority have made what was once thought of as impossible now a commercial reality.

The 2nd Annual Asia-Pacific Deep Sea Mining Summit will bring together a large array of solution providers, upcoming deep sea miners, members from the scientific community, and those within allied industries wanting to learn more about the opportunities within this emerging marketplace.

Thank you to all of our supporters and participants from previous summits, here’s a short preview.

Following the huge successes of the Deep Sea Mining Summit series in Europe, this year’s continued objective in Asia is “forming partnerships” and to build on existing relationships to develop framework agreements and environmental impact assessments, technological and technical know-how’s, and to focus on the real challenges which face a new breed of deep sea miners and industry providers. Case studies and real results will address these issues.

Key topics on the agenda include:

  • The economic landscape and growth for deep sea mining
  • Achieving sustainable seabed mining projects in harmony with nature
  • New exploration and mining projects underway, the latest frontline feedback
  • Regional opportunities to harvest Seafloor Massive Sulphides and Manganese Nodules
  • Working with nations through a regulatory framework, the opportunities and risks
  • Technological developments associated with commercializing deep sea mining

In addition the program will have a unique emphasis on networking and collaboration, including generating dialogue in applying useful technologies and solutions for adaptation in deep sea mining from offshore oil and gas. There will also be an opportunity to meet new investors from outside the market and to form collaborative partnerships in allied industries for mutual benefit.
