Minerals present in nodules on the ocean floor are vacuumed from the ocean floor, and fuels are pumped from the ocean from huge platforms. TRUE.
Explanation:As the minerals have to be drilled deep down form the ocean floor and thus have to be taken with great care thus these minerals have to be sucked out from the floors with the help of machines that pull the contents of the floor and then segregation is done on the basis f the available matter. The huge drilling platform is always used as this called deep-sea mining, mineral content is usually found near the polymetallic nodules or the extinct hydrothermal vents, that are located at a depth of 4,600 to 12,100 feet below the sea level. Oil and other naturally occurring metals such as gold, copper, and manganese, zinc, etc are found.
