The Manhattan Project

The Manhattan Project

This is surely one of the earliest examples of U.S.N.Z. secret research cooperation. According to an Otago University geologist, Dr. C.O. Hutton when the Manhattan project for the development of the atomic bomb was undertaken during the war, an appeal was made to all allied countries to search for supplies or radioactive minerals. The N.Z. Government sent a secret expedition under the leadership of Dr. Hutton to Fiordland in the hope that important discoveries would be made there .... The expedition failed to find any uranium.
