Potential Deep-Sea Mining of Seafloor Massive Sulfides: A ...

Placer Dome’s interest of deep-sea mining of seafloor massive sulfides is focused on the eastern part of the Bismarck Sea, specifically in the eastern Manus Basin, which is tectonically classified as a back-arc basin (Figure 2-1). These basins are usually formed behind island arcs, which in turn are formed along active plate margins.
