SMD Mineral Extraction Solutions

We are committed to investing in technology to unlock value for this emerging market

Through ground-breaking innovation and elegant design, deep water mineral extraction technology is set to unlock the ore deposits of the world's oceans in a sustainable and environmentally balanced process.

Through experience we understand the importance of focussing our effort on developing tools and processes which offer the most environmentally friendly and efficient solution for the subsea environment. Without this type of solution we don’t see how subsea mineral extraction can be commercially viable.

In 2016 we delivered the world’s first commercial deep sea mineral extraction vehicles for use in deep water massive sulphide extraction. Our expertise in underwater mineral extraction continues the exploration of technology for use in inland wet mining markets. Inland mineral extraction technology will unlock rich and rare ore pipes in proven but inaccessible flooded mines.
