Search for Phosphate on Seamount surfaces in Equatorial Areas of the South Pacific Objectives: To determine the distribution of phosphatic and associated ferromanganese deposits in the designated area; radiometric dating of such material; geochemical analysis with a view to discovering the provenance, and mode of deposition as well as geological association and interpretation of relationships if any, between phosphorites on seamounts and those exposed on Pacific islands. To locate commercially exploitable deposits.Work on finding seafloor phosphorites completed in Southern Lau Group in conjunction with Florida State University. Further work is envisaged for late 1983 on a detailed scale of Rotuma and on a reconnaisance scale further north towards Niulakita (Tuvalu). 1981: MACHIAS cruises SI-81-1 and 2, PN-81-2 and KI-81-2 completed. Phosphate deposits discoveredd in Matahiva lagoon, reserves estimated at 14 million tonnes at 33% phosphate. Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Cruise 1983
