Polymetallic sulfides have attracted more attentions, which are regarded as one of the potential seabed mineral resources for their high grade of precious metal elements such as Cu, Zn, Pb, Au, and Ag. Since 2007, there are four China dayang cruises (CDCs) with eight legs totally, which have been carried out to investigate polymetallic sulfides on the southwest Indian ridge (SWIR), and eight hydrothermal vents have been found. In 2011, the China Ocean Mineral Resources Research and Development… CONTINUE READING
