“Eureka 1” is an innovative underwater drone that can collect rare minerals from the seafloor without causing too much damage to the ecosystem.

Impossible Metals has announced in a press release that “Eureka 1,” its first autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), has finished its first field test by carefully choosing pebbles to collect in an aquatic environment. This is a big step for the company, which wants to move toward a green economy by finding better ways to mine essential minerals.

This will be important because the demand for these metals will keep going up for the next few decades.

All of this puts a massive strain on mining activities and will lead to a rise in demand for traditional and new ways to get raw materials.
