Few Poles actually know that their country has a sort of submarine plot located 500 miles southeast of Hawaii toward Mexico.
It has an area of 75,000 km2, which roughly equates to one quarter of Poland’s surface.
A Polish-based consortium has received permits from the International Seabed Authority to explore the zone. Will the country be able to start tapping into a vast well of underwater resources in the near future?
“I think [technically] we could be quite optimistic here. Perhaps the deep-sea mining project for polymetallic nodules might be a reality within just a couple of years,” said Tomasz Abramowski Director General of Interoceanmetal.
