Antarctica to remain permanently off-limits to mining … Antarctica will remain completely off limits for mining in the future. That was the unanimous decision reached on Wednesday by all 29 nations party to the Antarctic Treaty, the main international governing mechanism for the continent. The resolution, lauded by NGOs, dispels any doubts or false rumors that the status quo might change after 2048. – Blouin News
