  Mallory and Irvine The Final Chapter: Our Top Ten Items on the "To Do " list.

Not in any specific order....

Note many of these items are in various stages of progress.

Note this picture is of one of many items we found in various places on Everest. Some items are easily identified, others are not. ©EverestNews.com

1. Discover the source of the oxygen bottle we found on Mt. Everest. Research who made the Everest oxygen bottles; why and when they were made; what types were made and who took what to the mountain. Try to determine who carried the oxygen bottle we found to where we found it, and of a high priority, figure out the key to the coding on these bottles.

2. Identify fibers and other materials we found near the oxygen bottle (where the "old dead" was said to be).

3. Study our high-resolution film for clues. We surveyed a large area of Mt Everest. The body of Sandy Irvine certainly does not leap out at us. However, we have hours and hours of film, literally hundreds of thousands of frames of footage... This is a massive job.

4. Interview the Chinese.

5. Search the couloir.

6. Speak to Mr Messner. Why was he quoted as saying he is sure George Mallory did not summit Everest? [Everyone tells us to dismiss this]. Our question is, did he find something when he summited Everest from the North? Of course, he could of have been misquoted or was just stating his personal opinion. A long shot, but on the list!

7. Determine ways to figure out origin of artifacts, i.e. glass, fibers, etc. Determine sources that can help do these determinations. Develop relationships with Universities and Companies that could assist in determining ways to figure out origin of artifacts.

8. Study the artifacts, i.e. glass, fibers, etc to determine their origins; locate sources that can help with these determinations.

9. Find a way to share "sensitive" information, i.e. pictures of dead climbers with other researchers while preventing them from being spread over the internet, which is a continuing problem. People simply do not respect the Intellectual Property rights of others.

10. Continue to post stories, pictures, location maps, video from 2004, etc for our readers who have been a great asset.
