The fol- lowing costs were calculated: (1) fixed costs per ton/annum manganese nodules in US$ (1979) and (2) variable costs per ton/annum manganese nodules in US$ (1979). The results are shown in Figures Al and A2. Average Fixed Costs per Ton/Annum Manganese Nodules The broad range of dispersion of the estimates in Figure Al is striking. The most important reasons for the considerable differences in the estimates of the average fixed costs have already been mentioned in the text: a) differences in the size of the operations on which the calculations were based b) different technologies used to recover and hoist manganese nodules and c) different methods of smelting manganese nodules.
OWn claculation. 21 analysis do not show that deep-sea mining is a clearly advantageous source of metal ~ however, even according to the factor absorption analysis, deep-sea mining is competitive with land-based mining. This is also seen in the projection of the variable costs for the year 1990. Assuming that the factor prices will continue to develop up to 1990 in the same way that they developed between 1967 and 1978 1 , no major differences in production costs between lateritic nickel operations and deep-sea mining operations are expected (Table 5).
