Only three months ago Paul Lynch thought the chances of successfully mining the manganese nodules that cover a large area of his country’s seabed was ‘virtually’ impossible.  He does not think so anymore.

Mr. Lynch, is a Cook Islands lawyer and the Senior Legal advisor to the Office of the Minister of Minerals and Natural Resources. He was in Fiji recently attending the SPC SOPAC Division Deep Sea Minerals Meeting, funded by the EU, on behalf of his Minister, the Honourable Tom Marsters.
