The research team evaluation on mineral source to 16 million tons. That will not only make Japan has plenty of mineral industry for their long only. But this is called a volume rocker to enter with the manufacturing sector. The world left hundreds of years can be called a “use unlimited”.
The next step, researchers explore to invent find the secret to dig out the minerals from the sea up take advantage of the truth. The ore extraction out of the mud to find ways to effectively.
