The Silent Earth

Undersea Industry

Unmanned undersea mining stations providing
constant and abundant mineral and ore
extraction and processing.

The drilling and processing machines are maintained and
supported by robot 'mechanics', programmed with a
high degree of artificial intelligence.

In this image, two drilling machines begin exploratory bore-holes
prior to the establishment of a long term mining operation.
