Abstract

Deep-sea mining is seen as a potential way to provide future secure metal supply to global markets. The
current rush to the seafloor in areas beyond national jurisdiction indicates that sound knowledge of the
geological characteritics of the various commodities, a realistic resource assessment, and a social and
political discussion about the cons and pros of their exploitation that is based on facts, not myths, is
required. This contribution provides the most recent information on global deep-sea mineral resources and
sets the stage for detailed talks in this session.
