-, -:  (FILES)-AUSTRALIA OUT- This file photo dated 1909 shows British mountain climber George Mallory, who died while scaling Mount Everest in 1924 , on the Moine ridge of the Aiguille Verte mountain in France. It was reported 25 April, 2004 that some eighty years after British climbers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine vanished on Mount Everest, a search party is seeking a camera which may prove whether the pair were the first to reach the summit of the world's highest peak. Armed with new evidence, a team sponsored by a US climbing web site, EverestNews.com, hopes to find Irvine's body and the Kodak VPK camera which the climbers are believed to have taken with them when they headed up the mountain on the morning of June 8, 1924. George Martin, general manager of EverestNews.com, said the black-and-white film in the camera may have survived in the frigid conditions. 'The experts believe that it's very developable.'  New Zealand climber Sir Edmund Hillary has always been given credit as the first to reach the summit in 1953 along with Nepalese Serpa Tenzing Norgay.
