Benham Rise has great value - Atienza
MetadataShow full item record
Benham Rise is of great economic value to future generations of Filipinos, based on the massive deposits of metal-bearing nodules found around the extinct volcano ridge, House senior deputy minority leader and Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza said on Sunday. “The sea floor around Benham is covered with metal-rich chunks – manganese nodules that also contain nickel, copper, cobalt and other minerals,” Atienza, a former Environment secretary, said. The National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (Namria) previously explored Benham and found exceptionally high concentrations of manganese nodules on the seabed, he said.
