Abstract : Any international regime established to regulate the exploitation of deep ocean mineral resources will be shaped greatly by the effect this exploitation may have on the world economy. Many deep ocean mineral deposits are potentially available, but manganese modules will probably be the first to be exploited. The exploitation of manganese nodules could be detrimental to the economies of specific developing countries with manganese, nickel or cobalt mining industries. (Author)
