Ok Moving on…

Ocean water is rich in dissolved minerals. By far, the most abundant are those that make salt. In some countries, salt is still produced in salt fields where sea water is evaporated. Developed countries usually obtain salt by an industrial process called the ion exchange membrane method.

There are also valuable minerals dissolved in ocean water, including gold, silver and uranium.

Because of the vastness of the worlds oceans, obtaining these metals from the water is difficult. Recent efforts have been made to extract uranium, which is the most plentiful of the three in the ocean water. So far, the process has proved to be much more expensive than extracting it from the ground though.

As you know, in addition to the many organisms living in the ocean, enormous amounts of minerals are dissolved in it. Among them are gold, silver and uranium.

The most abundant substance in the ocean are chlorine and sodium. Together, they make salt. In some parts of the world, people get the salt they need from sea water.

About these minerals!!

Gold:- This metal is made into jewellery and other treasures. The oceans are believed to contain 13.6 million metric tons [15 million tons!] of dissolved gold.

Silver:- The ore is refined for use in silverware, jewellery and industry. Experts say the oceans hold nearly 32 million metric tons [36 million tons!] of silver.
