IHC Mining Becomes World Ocean Council Member

IHC Mining, part of Royal IHC, has become a member of the World Ocean Council (WOC) to add to the growing global industry alliance for “corporate ocean responsibility”.

Using its expertise, IHC Mining is working towards reaching deepsea mineral deposits. This is being achieved with the support of a dedicated research and development programme, as well as through its position as a leader of the EU Blue Mining project. It is also demonstrating its commitment to understanding and addressing the environmental aspects of seabed mining through its participation in the EU Midas Project and other similar programmes, the company wrote in a press release.

IHC Mining’s Managing Director, Henk van Muijen, says, “IHC Mining is pleased to become a WOC member. With activities such as the recent Business Forum on Ocean Policy and Planning, it is creating valuable opportunities for ocean industry collaboration and leadership on issues critical to the future of seabed mining.”

Rodney Norman, IHC Deep Sea Mining Director, adds, “The WOC provides a unique forum that enables IHC Mining to work with other ocean industries on key challenges and opportunities related to the responsible, science-based development of ocean resources.”
