Ziel der Reise / Objectives of Cruise:

Seafloor drilling, sampling, and mapping in the active tectonic zone south of Lihir Island in the New Ireland fore-arc, and at the Manus back-arc spreading center west of New Ireland, Papua New Guinea was conducted in order to establish the nature and extent of alteration and gold mineralization at Conical Seamount, a submarine volcano 10 km south of Lihir Island, and to investigate active and inactive hydrothermal sites of the Pacmanus hydrothermal field in the Bismarck Sea. Seafloor drilling was carried out with the Rockdrill of BGS. 41 holes were drilled at the summit plateau of Conical Seamount with a total penetration of 95.3 m and a recovery of about 30%. At Pacmanus hydrothermal site the first 5 m below seafloor were sampled Ten cores were recovered at the Roman Ruins site. Besides drilling extensive mapping has been carried out around Lihir Island and in the Eastern Manus Basin.
