  • Geologists strike Millions of tonnes of seabed gold in India that can change India

    Millions of tonnes of precious metal and minerals have been found in seabed surrounding India. It’s one of the biggest discoveries of such kind. The presence was first estimated in 2014. Since then, Geological Survey of India has generated 181,025 square kilometres of high-resolution seabed morphological data. It reported that, there is more than 10,000 million tonnes of lime mud. There is huge phosphate sediment off Mangaluru, Chennai ports, cobalt bearing ferro-manganese crust in Andaman sea, micro manganese nodules around Lakshadweep Sea. All these have huge industrial values. Scientists are hoping to find much more there.

    An American company has made what is being called the heaviest and deepest recovery of precious metals from a shipwreck. The Tampa, Fla.-based Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. announced Wednesday that it had recovered 48 tons of silver bullion from the SS Gairsoppa, a sunken British cargo ship in three miles of water off the coast of Ireland. Between the Gairsoppa, torpedoed by a German U-boat during World War II, and the SS Mantola, sunk by a German submarine during World War I, Odyssey said in a press release that about 240 tons of silver may be recovered by the end of the operation. The recovery is being made under a contract awarded by the U.K. government, which will keep 20 percent of the cargo's value, estimated to be in the tens of millions of dollars.

The odd-shaped object has fascinated mystery buffs since it was discovered in June 2011. The anomaly is a 70-metre long (210 feet) strangely-shaped feature that showed up on sonar laying 100 metres (300 feet) beneath the waves. Theories as to what the anomaly could be have ranged from the interesting to the outrageous, with the most crackpot claim to date that it could be part of fleet of crashed UFOs on ocean floor.

Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years.

The recovery is being made under a contract awarded by the U.K. government, which will keep 20 percent of the cargo's value, estimated to be in the tens of millions of dollars. The Gairsoppa became U.K. property after the government paid the owners of the ship an insurance sum of £325,000 in 1941. Records indicate the silver was valued at £600,000 in 1941. The initial recovery of 48 tons consists of 1,203 silver bars and has been transported to a secure facility in the United Kingdom, according to the company. "With the shipwreck lying approximately three miles below the surface of the North Atlantic, this was a complex operation," Odyssey CEO Greg Stemm said in Odyssey's release. Odyssey contracted JBR Recovery Ltd., a European silver recovery and precious metal processing company, to assist in refining and monetizing the recovered silver.

When two Swedish treasure hunters searched for champagne in shipwrecks, they came across something unusual, something they had never seen before. Our correspondent in Stockholm has more. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C When two Swedish treasure hunters went out in June this year searching for ancient bottles of champagne in shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea, they found more than they'd bargained for. Dennis Åsberg and Peter Lindberg didn't find any champagne, they found something else. A huge disc-shaped object showed up in their sonar pictures 197 feet in diameter, as big as a jumbo jet. [Peter Lindberg, Ocean Explorer]: "I magnified it, looked at it and realized that this is very unusual, in my years as a treasure hunter I have many hours in front of the sonar, I've never seen anything like it." On the sonar it looked like a point of impact, as though something had hit the ocean floor, continuing 4000 feet, creating a track before it came to a halt. It had dug into the sea bed making a sand bar on its right side. The object is about 275 feet deep, the Baltic sea floor is dead with no underwater currents to create such sandbars. Recently another object was found about 500 feet from the mysterious disc. According to Peter this object comes from the same direction as the disc and could be a part of it. Sonar shows the objects are made of hard material. It could be something like hard concrete, granite or of some kind of metals. The two explorers have been in contact with many experts around the world and no one can say what it is. But many speculate on things like a Russian ship from the World Wars, a meteorite or a UFO. [Dennis Åsberg, The ocean explorer team]: "We live in a universe that is gigantically big. It's not impossible that it is so. Well then we have found it, that's cool, but as I said, I believe more that it would be something that is dumped perhaps a submarine base that the Russians had or something like that" Dennis says that finding a financier for this project is not as easy as when they search for antique wine bottles or historic artifacts. For those who can afford it there will soon be a chance to follow the ocean explorer team in a submarine on their first trip down to the hidden mystery in May 2012. NTD News, Stockholm, Sweden.

Support Us On Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory We Are Also On Steemit: https://steemit.com/@mysteryhistory We previously covered an intriguing discovery, made within a forest in Oklahoma. Discovered by David Campbell and his wife while following up on a curious lead. This discovery, as previously discussed, is a compelling link to waffle rock, another anomalous relic we have previously covered. Embedded in the dirt where it struck the ground many years prior, numerous specialists have postulated that it could be a fragment of an artificial craft which disintegrated in the sky. What was astonishing regarding David’s discovery was the similar structure of the object which they discovered, also partially buried and scattered amongst the woods. Possibly the debris of this once enormous craft. Created using an intricate layering design of unknown metals, minerals and alloys. Although further studies of this compelling discovery have yet to be established, it is with understandable caution that those with knowledge of the area move forward. It must be noted that waffle rock, once a local landmark, had attracted a flurry of attention from geologists, scientists and UF-ologists, who had begun to ponder its unique and other worldly characteristics. That was until the United States government moved in and submerged the artefact under several metres of water, the entire town which had built up around this ancient object, were forced out to make way for a reservoir which flooded the entire area. We have therefore, undoubtedly been compelled to research further regarding David’s amazing discovery, also due to our extensive understanding of the studies undertaken upon waffle rock, and this sites similarities with such. And unsurprisingly, we have not been disappointed with what has been unearthed. It seems folks have been fully aware of the unusual quote “mineral deposits” within the Oklahoma area for quite some time, it seems possible that the entire area is an ancient crash site of a once enormous alien craft. Known as the Oklahoma mystery stones, could these unexplainable fragments have once been part of an ancient spaceship? Found throughout Oklahoma, they are often mistaken for manmade objects, this clearly being due to their artificial appearance. And Oklahoma is not the only place we feel there could indeed be fragments, of an ancient alien craft which crashed here on Earth. The founder of mystery history gained access to detailed sonographic imagery, showing the bottom of the Baltic sea late last year, and now, due to the findings which were chased up by main stream media outlets in early January, several other independent investigators surrounding ocean X’s discovery, have arrived at the same suspicions… We strongly feel, due to our research, that the Baltic sea anomaly is but a fragment of a much larger crash area which covers the sea bed. Many other fragmentary remnants are resting nearby, waiting to be investigated further, much smaller fragments, which if successfully retrieved, could quite possibly correlate with the materials being retrieved within Oklahoma. Could these two objects have been part of the same ancient event? It seems while trying to solve one mystery surrounding these anomalies, you will often be confronted with several more. Though thankfully, it seems we are one step closer to unravelling the origins of Oklahoma’s mystery stones, we are also now in possession of the whereabouts of a main debris site. And ultimately, and maybe most importantly, we are beginning to make head way in regards to public awareness of these wonderful mysteries.

THE mysterious Baltic Sea Anomaly is a 14,000 year-old ancient temple lost beneath the waves, it has extraordinarily been claimed. The odd-shaped object has fascinated mystery buffs since it was discovered in June 2011. The anomaly is a 70-metre long (210 feet) strangely-shaped feature that showed up on sonar laying 100 metres (300 feet) beneath the waves. Theories as to what the anomaly could be have ranged from the interesting to the outrageous, with the most crackpot claim to date that it could be part of fleet of crashed UFOs on ocean floor. Some conspiracy theorists even point out that it bears a striking resemblance to the Star Wars Millennium Falcon with a steel grey appearance. Others have claimed it could be the remains of a sunken city lost to the waves years ago. However, it has now been claimed it is a "monument built by highly-advanced civilisation built 14,000 years ago”. A video on YouTube shown on the Archeodoku channel has made the staggering claims. The narrator of the video, said to be produced by AD, says: "The stunning highly controversial… find has finally been identified as a submerged monumental construction from the Palaeolithic era. "Huge geometric symbols cast into the ancient cement building represent paleo stanford hieroglyphs of the global Atlantean culture." The video uses slick CGI images to show what it claims is a mock up of an investigation dive to discover exactly what it was. The video has been branded a "total hoax" by sceptics online. The narrater continues to describe various shapes seen on the anomaly. He adds: "The two metre hole with the square around it forms a sacred boat of ligature. "The square glyph represents a planet, while the dot represents a numeral, together reading 'Jupiter the One'. "The circular format of the entire temple and its singular dome represent the paleo stanford numeral one, used by Atlantean spiritual traditions to praise 'The One' the universal divine creative force. "The most conspicuous man-made geometric structure on this massive stepped platform monument is a large hemispherical dome feature that likely served to focus ultra and infrasonic waves into an hemispherical inner chamber accessed from the adjacent recessed corridor." The video has been trashed online as an out and out hoax. One YouTube user posted: "Atlanteans... in the Baltic Sea... doesn't compute." Another said: "Stop spewing this bullshit out onto the internet. It's not a man made structure." Despite the video being hoaxed, the mystery remains in some people's minds. Baffled oceanographers say despite the structure looking like a rock, it appears to be made of metal. The mystery deepens following claims electric and satellite diving equipment cuts out when near the Anomaly. The 9-metre (26ft) tall object was discovered by Swedish explorer Peter Lindberg and his Ocean X team of marine explorers during a dive searching for a shipwreck. Paranormal researcher Ryan Castledine, who runs the Mystery History channel on YouTube, believes the area surrounding the Anomaly, which appears to be formed of pieces of angular metal, could contain even more unidentified objects. He said: “My own opinions upon looking at the sonar scans of the surrounding area, is that I feel there is visual evidence of more unusual anomalies, with unnatural shapes, accompanied by scours in the sea bed, which I feel demand further analysis. “Reports have been made by the Ocean X team of problems with electric equipment when within a 200-metre radius the object, as if it is emitting a field that interferes with equipment. “Initial interest in the anomaly was sparked by its unnatural shape, numerous right angles, a dome structure on its top, and what appears to be stairs running down one side. “It’s on a raised surface of about six metres in height, as if it came to rest after carving into the Earth, a substantial area of what appears to be a scraped-out seabed is immediately to one side, which gives it the uncanny appearance of a crash-landed craft. “A sample recovered by divers was reportedly found to contain limonite and goethite. Israeli geologist Steve Weiner claimed that these materials are metals which nature could not reproduce itself." Other YouTube posters are fed up with the ongoing mystery and said it could easily be solved by sending a dive team down to record it. One posted: "If this is legit send some cameras down there and show it to us, we won't argue if what we see is real." Another posted: "Its a reef. It's in 90metres, stop talking and dive it." Yet, geologists believe it is just a natural feature. Swedish geologists Fredrik Klingberg and Martin Jakobsson say that the chemical composition of the sample resembles that of nodules, which can indeed be formed naturally. Geology professor Volker Brucherz said the structure could just have formed in the last Ice Age.

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com Ever since they were discovered in 1873, scientists have been trying to find out the origin of the millions of potato-sized metal balls that carpet the world's oceans. Known as manganese nodules, these lumps contain valuable metals that scientists someday hope to harvest from the sea floor. Now German scientists could be closer to solving the mystery of their origin after stumbling on the largest patch of manganese nodules ever found in the Atlantic.

The ocean is a deeply mystical , beautifully breathtaking, perfect place. But it does come with some downsides. Here are 12 Magnificent Deep Water Facts Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5.Wow, That’s Hot Because the seafloor lies on top of the layer in the Earth’s crust where magma is made, certain parts of it contain hydrothermal vents. Such vents are a scientific result of lava erupting from the sea floor, and they are typically found near underwater volcanoes. These vents aren’t like those of your typical jacuzzi tub vents- they can reach temperatures up to six hundred and sixty two degrees high- enough to melt led. These could create problems for deep water explorers, but oceanographers are able to get an idea of where the vents are located through the hot water plumes that arise into the sea. While it’s wondrous to think about these vents, it’s also fascinating to know that they play a part in keeping the ocean’s ecosystem healthy. The high temperatures of the water aid in removing chemical compounds from the water, like magnesium and sulfate. 4. Marine Mining An exciting type of robot has been developed in order to mine precious metals like gold, copper, manganese, and others from the bottom of the sea floor. There are both positive and negative effects to these seafloor mining robots, developed by Canadian Mining firm Nautilus Minerals. On the plus side, they could prevent us from continuing to deplete our natural resources and lead us to the development of more eco friendly technology. However, there is rising concern that they will disrupt ecosystems of the ocean. These things will definitely have no problem sinking to the ground, as they are reportedly 200 tons each and the size of a “small house”. Things like population growth have led analysts to believe that human society will have a vastly greater need for metals in future years, but environmentalists are fervently against it. Some scientists have even raised concerns that the mining vehicles may accidentally upturn dangerous deep sea floor sediments , and that harmful chemicals could end up in the waves of populated beaches. They aren’t set to launch until 2019, so if you are in favor or in protest, speak now or forever hold your peace! 3.Gold Rush Maybe the idea of mining at the bottom of the ocean isn’t such a bad idea after all. Research by the National Ocean Service may just hold more than twenty million tons of dissolved and undissolved gold. They added that if all the gold in the world’s oceans was successfully mined, every one would have nine whole pounds of gold. That seems pretty insane, but it may not be worth it. The gold is so diluted that for every litre of seawater, there is thirteen billionths of gold in it. Pretty tiny, wouldn’t you agree? Miners would have to travel two miles underwater, and on top of that, dig even deeper into the rocks of the ocean floor. 2.Embrace the Darkness Because the light of the sun can “only penetrate about three hundred thirty feet” into the surface of the ocean, much of the remains in total darkness. And, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, sunlight can only travel down as deep as six hundred feet. As a result, our twelve thousand and four hundred feet deep oceans are in a state of sort of terrifying darkness. As in, there are “definitely no light bulbs or candles to light down there darkness”. Which basically means that most of our planet is actually dark all of the time. One of the darkest zones of the ocean is the aphotic, of “midnight” zone. It lies only three thousand two hundred and eighty feet below sea level, which really doesn’t seem like that much, because it’s around equal to a sixth of a mile. We hope you’ve enjoyed- swimming- around in all this ocean knowledge, but we really enjoy your comments! Here are just a few from today. We’ll keep -fishing- for them…. 1.Watch Out For That Water The ocean is a deeply mystical , beautifully breathtaking, perfect place. But it does come with some downsides. Every year, tons and tons of human waste gets dumped into the ocean. Containments of this waste range anywhere from empty bottles to infected needles-ew! What’s more, is that cruise ships are responsible for dumping over one BILLION gallons of sewage into the ocean every year. The fact of the matter is, is that the ocean is FILLED with millions of disease causing microbes and bacteria. How much bacteria, may you ask? Er, just a tinge- if you consider 10 to 100 million viruses per teaspoon of ocean water a tinge. Although the ocean’s ecosystem has a natural way of cleansing itself, studies have shown more and more disease causing agents are in our Earth’s water. Such things can contaminate fish, which can eventually harm humans if consumed. The point is, we should all work to keep our oceans clean and safe!

When two Swedish treasure hunters searched for champagne in shipwrecks, they came across something unusual, something they had never seen before. Our correspondent in Stockholm has more. When two Swedish treasure hunters went out in June this year searching for ancient bottles of champagne in shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea, they found more than they'd bargained for. Dennis Åsberg and Peter Lindberg didn't find any champagne, they found something else. A huge disc-shaped object showed up in their sonar pictures 197 feet in diameter, as big as a jumbo jet. [Peter Lindberg, Ocean Explorer]: "I magnified it, looked at it and realized that this is very unusual, in my years as a treasure hunter I have many hours in front of the sonar, I've never seen anything like it." On the sonar it looked like a point of impact, as though something had hit the ocean floor, continuing 4000 feet, creating a track before it came to a halt. It had dug into the sea bed making a sand bar on its right side. The object is about 275 feet deep, the Baltic sea floor is dead with no underwater currents to create such sandbars. Recently another object was found about 500 feet from the mysterious disc. According to Peter this object comes from the same direction as the disc and could be a part of it. Sonar shows the objects are made of hard material. It could be something like hard concrete, granite or of some kind of metals. The two explorers have been in contact with many experts around the world and no one can say what it is. But many speculate on things like a Russian ship from the World Wars, a meteorite or a UFO. [Dennis Åsberg, The ocean explorer team]: "We live in a universe that is gigantically big. It's not impossible that it is so. Well then we have found it, that's cool, but as I said, I believe more that it would be something that is dumped perhaps a submarine base that the Russians had or something like that" Dennis says that finding a financier for this project is not as easy as when they search for antique wine bottles or historic artifacts. For those who can afford it there will soon be a chance to follow the ocean explorer team in a submarine on their first trip down to the hidden mystery in May 2012.

Seas At Risk thinks it is better to step up efforts on the circular economy – make devices repairable, re-usable, recyclable. Use mineral resources more efficiently and keep them in the economy loop instead of wasting them. In our leaflet ‘Deep sea mining? Stop and think!’ you can read why we think deep sea mining has no place in the world’s Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Let’s focus on creating a circular economy instead! http://www.seas-at-risk.org/images/pdf/Infographics/DSM-PDF-leaflet-light.pdf

Costa Concordia: Ship Heaved Off Rocky Seabed Efforts to right the Costa Concordia are taking longer than expected, officials involved in the recovery of the crippled cruise liner have said. Italy's civil protection chief Franco Gabrielli said the salvage operation - one of the most complex and costly ever undertaken - would continue "into the night". The lift, off the Italian island of Giglio where the vessel capsized 20 months ago, had been due to last only 12 hours. However, officials said they were confident the 600 million euros (£503m) "parbuckling" operation would be wrapped up by dawn on Tuesday, at which time the vessel is expected to be back in an upright position. The Costa Concordia capsized in shallow water after smashing into rocks, causing the chaotic evacuation of 4,200 passengers and crew and the deaths of 32 people. The bodies of two of those who died are still missing. The recovery of the 114,000-ton ship was put back by three hours because of bad weather, and was further delayed when four of the 56 cables being used to haul the ship upright became loose. Salvage workers scrambled onto the floatation tanks welded to the side of ship to tighten the cables, allowing work to resume. The Parbuckling method has been used to raise capsized vessels before, most notably by the US military to right the USS Oklahoma in 1943 after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. However, the Concordia is thought to be the largest cruise ship ever to require the rotation. Engineers are using remote controls to control a synchronised system of pulleys, counterweights and huge chains looped under the ship's hull to delicately lift the ship upright. Graphic explaining the operation to re-float the Costa Concordia cruise liner. The ship wreck has begun emerging ... The large tanks attached to the exposed side of the ship will then touch the water, providing buoyancy. About 29,000 tons of water, as well as residual fuels, heavy metals and rotten food, will pour out of the ship as it is pulled upright, although officials say the risk of an environmental damage is limited. More than three tons of melon, eight tons of beef and 18,000 bottles of wine are among the items on board. The Concordia's captain Francesco Schettino is on trial for alleged manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning the ship during the evacuation. He claimed the reef was not on the nautical charts for the liner's week-long Mediterranean cruise.
