Hazards of Deep-Sea Mining. Critical metal resources in the deep sea include arsenic, copper, cobalt, nickel, lithium, platinum, tellurium, zinc, and many rare earth elements ().The exploitable resources of the potentially prolific, 40-million-km 2 deep-sea area could be worth $20 trillion to $30 trillion, considering current metal prices.However, these resources are not renewable,

Rare Earth Elements Around the Barakah Nuclear

Rare earth element (REE) contamination has major consequences for the environment and humans. Some forms of REEs have more serious environmental impacts than others. It is thus crucial to monitor their levels in areas where they are expected to be released. Concentrations of 13 REEs (La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu) around the Barakah
