South Koreans to carry out seabed mineral study in Tonga


A South Korean research vessel is to carry out scientific studies on seabed minerals in Tongan waters over the next several months.

A ship, provided by the Korean Ocean Research and Development Institute, or KORDI, arrived last week to begin investigations of the extent of deposits such as copper, silver and gold on the ocean floor within Tonga’s exclusive economic zone.
