Manganese nodules were first discovered on the ocean floor miles south-west of the Canary Islands on Febru , during the first complex oceano­ logical cruise of the Challenger. They surprised researchers by their unusual shape and also by their unusual chemical composition;Brand: Springer Netherlands. Ocean manganese nodules [Library of Congress.

Ocean manganese nodules. [James E Mielke; Library of Congress. Congressional Research Service.; United States. Congress. Senate. Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs.].   Manganese Nodules and Crusts in Modern Sediments. The world's largest deposit of manganese is found in modern deep-sea sediments. Pelagic ferromanganese nodules cover the ocean floor over large areas, particularly in the central Pacific, and many volcanic edifices are coated by Fe–Mn crusts built on the rock surfaces.

Deep sea mining is a mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents at 1, to 3, metres (4, to 12, ft) below the ocean’s surface. The vents create globular or massive sulfide deposits, which contain valuable metals such as silver, gold, copper.   Deep-ocean polymetallic nodules (also known as manganese nodules) are composed of iron and manganese oxides that accrete around a nucleus on Author: James R. Hein, Andrea Koschinsky, Thomas Kuhn.   He announced that he would build a huge ship to mine valuable manganese nodules from the floor of the Pacific Ocean. In reality, the CIA was working with Hughes to .   Manganese nodules are found scattered on the ocean floor. Though generally composed of manganese (hence the name), they can also be made of iron, nickel, copper, and other metals. This recently discovered batch, located several hundred miles east of Barbados, is the largest yet discovered in the Atlantic Ocean. 1.
