Korean deep-seabed mining exploration. J.-W. Moon, K.-H. Kim and K.-Y. Lee. Sea Technol., December 1997, 38(12), 29--35.
Attention is drawn to the Korean 10-year programme for exploration in the Clarion Clipperton fracture zone as well as an environmental study for commercial mining. Three stages of the deep-seabed exploration programme are tabulated and discussed. Exploration technology is outlined and exploration for manganese nodule assessment is also considered.
