It's never "good" to disturb Mother Nature.

This one is very visual on how and where they will dredge the underwater sand, over 20 miles from the coast: http://www.dondiego.mx/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/DD_NTSing_...

I just read what David posted and it "looks" like they did their research and it will not cause much harm. ( I just hope it's all true ) and if so good for them.
The need for phosphate is truly there.

The only problem is these mining companies always paint a rosey picture and are usually the worst abusers of the planet.:light:

Mining comes in different forms. Mining via dredge is different then some other types of surface mining. Science is good. I have read the report and this project has my stamp of approval. :saint::dudette:

this is horrible news....No good comes out of churning the ocean floor for phosphate. The plume of muck will travel and disturb an area bigger than they or we know.. The Bay of Uoloa is a very fragile environment that has been fished by local co-ops for years. Turtles in that area,,,,,done,,,,,Whales are yet to see what happens. The only thing that will stop this will be a big NW current pushing all the muck down the peninsula and affect the Cabo/todos region. If that happens then the pug will be puled. 10 years of persistent payoffs and they somehow got approval. They made a Mexican packed celebrity video speaking out against this project 3 years ago and it stopped it,,,,,$$$$$$ is stronger than words.....good luck mother ocean !

The link showed new tech on managing the plume so the situation tecatero described is not the case, so much. Naturally, any mining is not without consequences.
