Mexico Hosts Sensitization Seminar on Deep Seabed Mining Opportunities

The Sensitization Seminar on Mexico’s Opportunities for Deep Seabed Mining was convened last month

in Mexico City.

The two-day Seminar aimed at increasing public awareness of the nature of mineral resources in marine areas beyond the limits of national jurisdiction (“the Area”).

The seminar was opened by Secretary-General Nii Allotey Odunton of the Authority; Dr. José Antonio Meade Kuribreña, Secretario de Relaciones Exteriores; Ildefonso Guajardo Villareal, Secretario de Economía; Dr. José Narro Robles, Rector de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México; and Dr. Enrique Cabrero, Director General del Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología.

Presentations were made by the International Seabed Authority and experts from various scientific institutions on the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea institutions, the legal framework for activities in the Area, member State responsibilities on supporting entities carrying out activities in the seabed and rare metals and rare earth minerals from the seabed.

Mexico will also make presentations on marine scientific research programmes, training and sponsoring opportunities for Mexican entities in the exploration for mineral resources in the Area.

The seminar in Mexico was the 6th in the series of sensitization seminars to be held by the ISA and the 2nd to be held in South America.
