5775 TOML Deep Green Scholarships 6-15 Jan 2021


TOML is excited to announce its secondary level science scholarship program for three students starting in 2021.

Tonga Offshore Mining Limited (TOML), is a Tongan subsidiary of DeepGreen Metals Inc., and is sponsored by the Kingdom of Tonga. TOML is on a mission to source the base metals required for the clean energy transition. These metals come from polymetallic rocks, which sit on the seafloor thousands of kilometers from Tonga in international waters. The production of these metals also has lower environmental and social costs compared to traditional land-based ores. You can read more about this comparison by checking out the white paper here:
