    Chemical analyses have been made of samples of Mn nodules from about stations in the Pacific Ocean. Within a local area, the composition of the nodules is quite uniform. Over the whole of the Pacific Ocean, the chemical composition of the nodules varies markedly. Compositional regions of the nodules in this ocean have been by:   In article titled “Manganese nodules and the age of the ocean floor,” published in the Journal of Creation, Patrick wrote that “according to paleontological and radiometric dating methods, the nodules are supposedly multi-millions of years old, the result of extremely slow growth rates of just millimeters per million years. However Author: Johnthomas Didymus.

    Life in the manganese nodule fields. If manganese nodules were to be mined in the future it would be a severe intrusion into the deep-sea biological environment because the harvesting machines would plough up large areas of the sea floor. It is very difficult to assess precisely how and to what extent the deep-sea ecosystem would be impacted. Manganese Nodules: Dimensions and Perspectives.

    The existence of manganese (Mn) nodules (Figure 1) has been known since the late s when they were collected during the Challenger expedition of – However, it was not until after WWII that nodules were further studied in detail for their ability to adsorb metals from seawater. Many of the early studies did not distinguish Mn nodules from Mn crusts.   A vast resource of essential metals — nickel, copper, cobalt and manganese — are contained in polymetallic nodules that sit four to five miles deep on the ocean floor in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ) of the Pacific Ocean.

Manganese nodules occur in many marine regions. They are found in significant abundances in four regions of the ocean: CLARION-CLIPPERTON ZONE (CCZ): With an area of around 9 million square kilometres, approximately the size of Europe, this is the world‘s largest manganese nodule region.

The CCZ is located in the Pacific, extending from the. Manganese nodules, together with micronodules and encrustations, are ferromanganese oxide deposits which contain variable amounts of other elements (Table 1).They occur throughout the oceans, although the economically interesting varieties have a much more restricted distribution.

Manganese nodules are spherical to oblate in shape and range in size from less than 1 cm in diameter up to 10 cm.

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.

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.

An attempt is made to outline a satisfactory general theory for the formation of Pacific deep-sea manganese nodules based on a consideration of the time of initiation of formation of the nodules, a mechanism of maintenance of the nodules at the sediment surface and the role of biological productivity of the surface waters in influencing nodule by:   Many secular scientists extrapolate current seafloor sediment deposit rates.

Marine manganese nodules, those strange, fist-sized metallic clusters that cover about 30% of the ocean floor, have been known for over a hundred years.

On sediment-starved deep ocean floors, generally 4 to kilometres deep, concretions rich in manganese, cobalt and nickel can form around small fragments of debris and organic material. The nodules concentrate minerals from siliceous oozes and from the water column.
