  • Sustainable Seabed Mining: A New Concept For Atlantis II Deep

    Research on seabed exploitation and seabed mining is a complex transdisciplinary field that demands for further attention and development. Since the field links engineering, economics, environmental, legal and supply chain research, it demands for research from a systems point of view. This implies the application of a holistic sustainability framework of to analyse the feasibility of engineering systems. The research at hand aims to close this gap by developing such a framework and providing a review of seabed resources. Based on this review it identifies a significant potential for massive sulphides in inactive hydrothermal vents and sediments to solve global resource scarcities.

  • Lost at sea: Ecological assessment around a sunken shipping container

    Thousands of shipping containers are lost from cargo vessels each year. Many of these containers eventually sink to the deep seafloor. In 2004, researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) discovered a lost shipping container almost 1,300 meters (4,200 feet) below the surface of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. In the first ever survey of its kind, researchers from MBARI and the Sanctuary recently described how deep-sea animal communities on and around the container differed from those in surrounding areas. The red dots seen in some of the underwater footage are lasers mounted on the remotely operated submersible. The lasers are 29 cm apart and allow the scientists to estimate animal size.

Research on seabed exploitation and seabed mining is a complex transdisciplinary field that demands for further attention and development. Since the field links engineering, economics, environmental, legal and supply chain research, it demands for research from a systems point of view. This implies the application of a holistic sustainability framework of to analyse the feasibility of engineering systems. The research at hand aims to close this gap by developing such a framework and providing a review of seabed resources. Based on this review it identifies a significant potential for massive sulphides in inactive hydrothermal vents and sediments to solve global resource scarcities. The research aims to provide background on seabed exploitation and to apply a holistic systems engineering approach to develop general guidelines for sustainable seabed mining of polymetallic sulphides and a new concept and solutions for the Atlantis II Deep deposit in the Red Sea. The research methodology adpted will start with acquiring a broader academic and industrial view on sustainable seabed mining through online survey and expert interviews on seabed mining. The experts are chosen according to their knowledge in one or more of the dimensions of seabed mining introduced in the research framework. The Nautilus Minerals case is also reviewd for lessons learned for seabed mining and the presented concept in particular with identification of challaenges and issues. Therafter, a new concept and site specific assessment for Atlantis II Deep is developed. The research undertaken in this study provides a new perspective regarding the sustainable seabed mining. The main contributions of this research are the development of extensive guidelines for key issues in sustainable seabed mining as well as a new concept for seabed mining involving engineering systems, environmental impact, economical benefits, logistics chain supply and legal aspects.

Brazil is one of the world's largest producers of precious gems and thousands of stones are bought and sold - but how to spot the authentic from the fraudulent? A new gemological research laboratory in Rio de Janeiro claims it can spot the difference the priceless and the paste. As one of the world's largest producers of gemstones it's perhaps not surprising to find a jewellers at the summit of sugarloaf mountain in Rio de Janeiro. Brazil is renowned for the quantity and diversity of its coloured gemstones; from emeralds, aquamarines, tourmalines, topaz and amethyst. Tourists will often purchase jewels and gemstones while visiting Rio de Janeiro's sightseeing spots - even at these heady heights. Here an aquamarine necklace in the window is capturing the interest of passers-by, despite competing with the breathtaking views across the city and ocean. In the Ipanema district, a gemstone museum attracts groups of visitors. Here the original rocks are displayed alongside the cut and polished stones. A reproduction of an emerald mine from the Minas Geraes region is also an attraction. "These shafts are very primitive. They use small elevators to descend to between sixty and three, four hundred meters," says Daniel Sauer a gemologist and owner of Amsterdam Sauer jewellery. These two rings showcase two of Brazil's most famous gems. Daniel Sauer explains: "These are two very rare stones, rarer than diamond: the imperial topaz and the Paraiba tourmaline". The other most sought-after Brazilian gems are both related beryls:- the emerald and the aquamarine. "A precious stone is deemed 'precious' because of its extreme rarity, why? because it was formed hundreds of millions of years ago. For instance, Brazilian aquamarines are eight hundred to one million years old" explains Daniel Sauer. Some specimens of the raw stones were preserved for the museum by Sauer's father - an immigrant from Alsace on the French/German border, who became a gemstone prospector in 1939. But spotting a real gem from a laboratory reproduction is not always easy. "The imitation does not have the optical effect that is unique despite being very subtle," says Daniel Sauer while showing a large aquamarine mined in Brazil. Unfortunately, many of the gems bought by tourists turn out to be inauthentic. Still beautiful objects, but perhaps not worth the price they have paid. Here at this street market in Copacabana gems - of all colour and size - are sold to tourists The prices are very competitive but the origin is not always guaranteed. Downtown in Rio de Janeiro many stone cutters (or lapidaries) work at their trade far from view of the general public. Vily Pedroso has been cutting stones for 40 years. Many of his stones come from the mines of Minas Geraes, but others are manufactured at the jewellers' request using industrially produced gemstones. "Here amethyst, same story. It's a lab made stone, we cut it. I don't sell it as being natural, but many sell it as a natural gemstone," says Vily Pedroso. This is the campus of Rio's federal University - here the Gemological Research Laboratory (LAPEGE) was recently inaugurated its new facilities. It's the only lab of its kind in South America and is equipped with five different kinds of spectroscopes to determine the authenticity of all Brazilian gemstones. "The question is finding out whether this ruby is natural or synthetic and for that we perform a series of tests to confirm," says Jurgen Schnellrath, the senior researcher. The ruby is submitted to traditional testing. First a fluorescence test in a darkened room, then placed in the immersion gemological microscope. The curved streaks prove its industrial quality. This is not an authentic ruby.

Remember early 2008? Growth was great, resources looked scarce, and commodity prices were soaring. Scan the banter, and it almost seemed as if there were no new frontiers to tackle in the world economy. That worry actually spurred a search that ignited interest in new prospects. Colombia is a great example. It has advanced cities, a strong financial system and a growing consumer class, but it also has vast, untapped resources in very underdeveloped regions. As the world returns to growth, how is this 'new frontier' market likely to do? Prior to the global crisis, Colombia's growth numbers were impressive. From 2004-2007, economic activity increased at an average pace just shy of 6 per cent. It paused in 2008, but quickly resumed a decent clip, notching a 6.6 per cent gain in 2011, and back-to-back 4 per cent gains in the past two years. Real GDP now stands 24 per cent above the 2008 level, an enviable record. Colombia is already very much on the move, suggesting that higher world growth will only enhance its prospects. The potential is there, but securing future growth isn't guaranteed. Currently, the country's infra-structure is constraining growth, ranking 92nd in the world, according to the Global Competitiveness Index. Evidence suggests that it is 5 times more costly to transport goods inside the country than trans-ocean Asia-Colombia freight rates. Aware of this dilemma, the government has embarked on an aggressive, $27 billion infrastructure spending binge, awarding 40 concessions in a two-year time-frame. This activity is expected to boost near-term annual GDP growth by 1.5 per cent. Canada is already quite active in Colombia. Total merchandise exports to Colombia rose on average by 8.4 per cent annually from 2000 to 2012. However, the pace was actually weighed down by the primary goods sector. Higher-valued exports actually increased by 24 per cent annually in the same timeframe, rising from just 5 per cent of total merchandise exports in 2000 to 28 per cent by 2012. Exports suffered a setback in 2013, but it is expected to be temporary. Trade between Canada and Colombia is roughly balanced. Imports are concentrated in agriculture, coal and oil and gas products. Canadian investors are well-known in Colombia, particularly in the oil and gas sector. The crisis proved to be a setback to impressive investment activity, but it has since rebounded. Canadian direct investment in Colombia is now over 70 per cent higher than at the 2008 peak, at just under $1.8 billion. Thanks to the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, Canada's trade and investment activities in Colombia are expected to flourish in the upcoming global economic cycle. Operating in Colombia is not without its risks. Institutions are weak, in particular the regulatory process. Environmental and social permits can take up to 24 months to secure, and mining and oil and gas exploration activity continues to be stalled. Ongoing security issues and corruption are also key concerns, and social conflict is quickly rising to the top among business-inhibiting concerns, with demonstrations nipping up to 0.5 per cent away from annual GDP growth. Juxtaposed against the opportunities, these significant concerns can be daunting. However, risk-mitigating solutions are readily available. Given the huge potential and natural market advantages for Canadian firms, this week in Bogotá EDC officially opened its 16th international representation in order to serve the needs of current and future Canadian operations in this dynamic market. The bottom line? In a world of shrinking frontiers, Colombia presents a great opportunity for Canadian firms in a broad array of industries. With appropriate risk coverage, savvy traders and investors can do very well in the coming growth cycle in this very dynamic market.

In 2004, researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) discovered a lost shipping container almost 1,300 meters (4,200 feet) below the surface of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. In the first ever survey of its kind, researchers from MBARI and the Sanctuary recently described how deep-sea animal communities on and around the container differed from those in surrounding areas. The red dots seen in some of the underwater footage are lasers mounted on the remotely operated submersible. The lasers are 29 cm apart and allow the scientists to estimate animal size.
