    still can have devastating effects on ecosystems, especially the seafloor. “Because of the high demand for minerals and metals for making technological items, this new way of mining has gathered a lot of attention in the last five years. Three forms of deep-sea mineral resources have been considered thus far for commercial exploitation: manganese nodule mining on abyssal plains, cobalt-rich crusts on seamounts, and massive polymetallic sulfide deposits at sites of hydrothermal venting” (). Manganese, the most favorable metal, is located on the seafloor of abyssal plains in the form of nodules, polymetallic sulfide deposits are collected near hydrothermal vents, and cobalt-rich crust deposits are located on seamounts, underwater mounts that do not reach the surface of the water.…

    we can see that the correct enzyme has been successfully purified. Considering the SDS-PAGE results we can confidently say that the purification steps were effective at removing a large proportion of E.Coli proteins. However, not all E.Coli proteins have been removed as shown by the SDS-PAGE gel photo and further purification steps would be needed to have a pure Arginase protein. The increase in specific activity was also shown in the SDS-PAGE gel as the band in sample C was much thicker than in…

The mined materials, combined with seawater, will be brought to the surface (most likely through hydraulics) by a riser system and transported to a surface support vessel. There the ore will be separated from the seawater…
