Two manganese (Mn) nodules were found in upper Miocene sediments in Hole 854C at a depth of 32.12 mbsf (Samples 138-854C-5H-1,0-2 cm, and -6H-1, 2-4 cm). In structure and composition, the lower nodule is similar to the Pleistocene surface nodules associated with radiolarian ooze from the Clarion-Clipperton Nodule Province. The upper nodule resembles those occurring on pelagic clay from the northern margin of that province.
