Fireside Chat: Deep Sea Mineral Collection, The New Frontier

About this Event

Register now to join this Fireside Chat to hear how changing regulations, new technology, and economic advantages are opening up what is potentially the world’s largest source of critical metals.  

Our expert panel includes:
  • Craig Shesky: CEO, The Metals Company
  • Emily King: Founder & CEO, Prospector Portal

The Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean has enough nickel, copper, cobalt, and manganese sitting on the seabed to support the electrification of 280 million EVs, equivalent to the entire U.S. passenger car fleet. All we have to do is collect rocks from the ocean floor.

The resource is in the form of polymetallic nodules, which sit unattached on top of the seafloor, so nodule collection requires no blasting, no drilling, and no digging. TMC has successfully concluded its own pilot collection trial, lifting 3,000 tons to the Hidden Gem vessel in Q4 2022. The company is ready to begin full scale harvesting operations once international regulations are finalized in 2024. Cantor Fitzgerald estimates they will achieve annual payable production of 103,000 tons of nickel, 68,000 tons of copper, and 6,000 tons of cobalt; enough to supply 1.2 MM EV batteries annually.

Register now to watch this fireside chat to hear how collecting resources from the ocean floor can solve the critical metals shortage and protect our national security.
