Positioned at the forefront of the seafloor minerals industry, and with a world-class team in place, DeepGreen is on track to become a leading producer of base and strategic metals obtained from vast high-grade seafloor polymetallic nodule deposits containing nickel, manganese, copper and cobalt.
DeepGreen's early mover advantage and patented processing technology position the Company to set the pace in this industry and offer a rare entry into a new supply of key raw materials to disrupt the current supply chain. The Company's leading achievements have already drawn attention from miner and metal trader Glencore, which has contracted to buy a percentage of the nickel and copper produced from a DeepGreen processing plant. Glencore has also made an investment in DeepGreen.
Large, long-life and high-grade mineral deposits on land are becoming scarce, yet global metal demand continues to rise and the mining industry is being increasingly constrained by environmental and land access issues making it harder to extract and process minerals on land.
With the convergence of exponential advancements in deep-sea Oil & Gas technology, along with declining ore grades and ore quality on land, the time has now come to unlock the value of mineral resources in the other 70% of the planet that is covered by water.
