This proposal, while admittedly inchoate and sketchy, is in keeping with the trends of our times. It would provide both minerals and capital for development. It would preserve State sovereignty while fostering international cooperation. And it would not unduly impede the mining companies which are poised to begin commercial harvesting, but would integrate them into partnership.
