Experimental seabed mining

Group questions Namatanai MP’s stance

In the May 16th article, Walter Schnaubelt was reported to have said though too much remained unknown about the environmental impacts of seabed mining, ‘that doesn't mean that we just shut the door’.

Schnaubelt further said he was keeping an open mind on potential seabed mining, and he would maintain a neutral stand until adequate information on the benefits of the Solwara 1 project are made available to him.
