NORI and Allseas Lift Over 3,000 Tonnes of Polymetallic Nodules to Surface from Planet's Largest Deposit of Battery Metals, as Leading Scientists and Marine Experts Continue Gathering Environmental Data

15.11.2022
The Metals Company, an explorer of the world’s largest estimated undeveloped source of critical battery metals, announced that its subsidiary NORI and offshore partner Allseas have successfully concluded the first integrated system test in the Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean since the 1970s, achieving all significant pilot milestones while collecting approximately 4,500 tonnes of seafloor polymetallic nodules. Over 3,000 tonnes were transported up a 4.3km-long riser system to the surface production vessel, Hidden Gem, while the additional 1,500 tonnes of nodules were purposely left behind on the seafloor as part of the trials.
