Lemkein is a seamount in the Western Pacific Ocean, west of Kwajalein.[2]

It is part of the Magellan Seamounts[1] and is a volcanic seamount covered with sediments. Ferromanganese crusts occur in some places.[3] Basalts in the form of pillow lavas altered to clay and zeoliths have been recovered from Lemkein.[4]
