According to Lum, "Nadi Bay has been investigated for minerals, particularly gold and magnetite, by three explorationcompanies in the last twenty-three years, namely Crawford Marine Specialists Inc. (1969-1971), Manganex Ltd (1972-1974) and Consolidated Gold Fields (Fiji) Ltd (1980-1981)..... Offshore exploration by the three companies consisted of drag-bucket and shallow gravity core sampling and beach-sand."
