  • Polymetallic Nodules : Latest Current Affairs and News

    02/09/2019· Polymetallic nodules (also called as manganese nodules) are small potato-sized (from millimetres to tens of centimetres in diameter) lumps of minerals found in deep sea. They contain nickel, copper, cobalt, lead, cadmium, vanadium, molybdenum, titanium in various proportions of which nickel, cobalt and copper are considered to be of economic and strategic importance. They are found in

  • Manganese nodules « World Ocean Review

    The international Law of the Sea precisely regulates who can mine manganese nodules or massive sulphide and cobalt crusts in the future. If the resources are located within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of a country, the so-called 200 nautical mile zone, this country has the sole right to mine them or to award mining licences to foreign companies. This is the case, for example, in a part

  • Manganese Ore Distribution across India & World PMF IAS

    Manganese Manganese is not found as a free element in nature. It is often found in combination with iron. The most important manganese ore is pyrolusite. Manganese is primarily used in iron and steel industry. It is the basic raw material for manufacturing steel alloys. 6 kilograms of manganese ore is required for manufacturing one tonne of steel.

  • how did India get the right to mine manganese nodules

    All the countries have to take rights from the ISA (International Seabed Authorities) to varry out exploration activities outside the exclusive economic zone. The ISA was formed under the United Nations Law Of Sea. India has earlier applied for these earlier. So in this way India get the right of mining manganese nodules from the area beyond exclusive economic zone.

  • Indian Manganese Mines IndiaNetzone

    Deep-sea nodules of manganese and other metals are scattered on the ocean floor. They form when the hot waters from hot springs (called black smokers) on the ocean bottom meet the cold, deep ocean water. However, manganese crystals have yet to be found in nature and therefore it is technically not a mineral, although laboratory grown specimens can look like a natural stone. The element
