Deep Pacific Box Corers utilized for assessment of ocean mining

Deep Pacific Box Corer

The Deep Pacific group, in collaboration with Ocean Instruments, provided five box corers for three campaigns to assess the environmental impacts and viability of deep-sea mining claims in the Clarion Clipperton Zone. The BX-650 and BX-750 box corer units are key tools for the testing of sediments on the seafloor. Their industry-standard status makes them the most accepted tool for both deep ocean benthic and geotechnical surveys both in the commercial and academic communities.
