  1. Nautilus, a Tonga based company I am very familiar with is involved with deep sea mining off of Papua New Guinea, said by one of its principles I am acquainted with to start this year. Their plan is to move on to the Tonga Trench, one of the deepest areas in the Pacific Ocean. The targets, or course, are rich mineral nodules. I doubt if this sort of thing will stop, or even be modified by UN, treaties, or the ISA. There is simply too much money involved. And in this modern world money rules.

  2. Since you brought it up, Richard, I found the following video about Nautilus on YouTube yesterday while trying to locate details on the project by OMCO Seabed Exploration.

    And this about the robot itself.
