There is another “Gold Rush” underway in the waters off Nome, Alaska. The well-known placer gold deposits extend into the sea where the commercial mining backhoes are limited to 30 ft. water depth.
Meanwhile, port and harbor dredging costs are skyrocketing worldwide while conventional dredging technology lags in adopting established remotely operated vehicle (ROV) technology and best practices from the telecom, oil and gas and renewable energy industries. 

The Tech
IP Subsea’s remotely operated dredge is a versatile 1000hp platform to perform subsea mining and dredging as well as additional survey and imaging services. The unique design offers precise vehicle positioning and control while working submerged for long durations to continuously dredge through various seabed conditions.
