    The aggregate deposits presented here comprise near-shore deposits of non-metallic detrital minerals and calcium carbonate. They occur both on beaches and deeper seabed areas. Marine aggregate deposits are principally extracted for use in the construction industry. Concentrated into their present occurrences by hydrodynamic processes, aggregates may have originally been deposited by mechanisms such as river or glacial deposition. The Sub Deposit Types Aggregates layer are the same as the main Marine Aggregate point and area layers but are based on the “Sub Deposit type” – of which there are 5 classes – Sand, Gravel, Pebbles/cobbles, Filling sand and Unclassified.

    The Geological Survey Ireland (GSI), as partner and Work Package 7 (Minerals) leader of EMODnet Geology Phase III, are compiling information on marine hydrocarbon deposits. EMODnet partners are submitting the spatial extent of mapped deposits and established information; here you can view data collated thus far. Oil and gas deposits include information such as deposit type, deposit sub type, economic feasibility, scale, status, operator, block name, data provider, host rock, area, depth to resource, references and comments. These are the same as the main Marine Hydrocarbons point and area layers but are based on the “Sub Deposit Type” – of which there are 6 classes – Oil, Condensate, Gas, Shale Gas, Coal and Unclassified.

    The Geological Survey Ireland (GSI), as partner and Work Package 7 (Minerals) leader of EMODnet Geology Phase III, are compiling information on phosphorite deposits. EMODnet partners are submitting the spatial extent of mapped deposits and established information; here you can view data collated thus far. Phosphorite deposits are found in sedimentary rocks, sufficiently rich in phosphate minerals. Phospherites are authigenic mineral deposits, formed in situ on the sea floor; they generally occur in deeper waters than placer deposits and are primarily used in the phosphate fertiliser industry.

    The Geological Survey Ireland (GSI), as partner and Work Package 7 (Minerals) leader of EMODnet Geology Phase III, are compiling information on Polymetallic nodules. EMODnet partners are submitting the spatial extent of mapped polymetallic nodules and existing information; here you can view data collated thus far. The information presented here are of mapped extents of polymetallic nodules within participating surveys national Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ). Polymetallic nodules are also known as manganese nodules. These ferromanganese concretions comprise mainly iron and ferromanganese oxides, with accessory minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, zinc, vanadium, platinum and molybdenum.

    The Geological Survey Ireland (GSI), as partner and Work Package 7 (Minerals) leader of EMODnet Geology Phase III, are compiling information on marine placer deposits. EMODnet partners are submitting the spatial extent of known deposits and established information; here you can view data collated thus far. The placer deposit information presented here are locations with concentrations of detrital heavy metallic minerals or gemstones. The occurrences of such deposits are generally limited to the continental shelf regions less than 120m deep.
