NEWS Nodules Mineral Resources the Seabed

ploiting the nodules is still uncertain. (Mining and processing will be the sub-ject of a second article.) Nor is the resource unlimited. Although nodules occur on the seabed in many parts of the world, they are unevenly distrib-uted. Only a few areas have nodules with a high metallic content in sufficient abundance to make mining feasible.

Global Marine Mineral Resources - USGS

2021-7-1  Over millions of years, spheroidal rocks called manganese nodules (or polymetallic nodules) form atop sediment covering the abyssal plains of the global ocean. These nodules form by the accretion of iron and manganese oxides around a tiny nucleus, such as a large grain of sand, a shark tooth, or older nodule fragment.
