This report is one of two concerning selected deposits within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone. The objective of this study and the companion sand and gravel study is to aid the minerals management service in their selection of specific offshore areas for consideration of near-term lease offerings. Three selected placer areas were investigated and evaluated using engineering and cost models. Sensitivity analyses were then performed in major physical and engineering parameters affecting the economic viability of mineral resources from these three locations.
