Lots of progress today. Having staged most of our equipment out at the drill site yesterday, we went out this morning to build up the drill and get started drilling. We had a very successful day, getting the drill put together by early afternoon, and even drilling 20 meters of core by the end of the day! Above, Terry, our driller, tends to the controls of the drill. The very top of the drill can be seen as it descends into the hole. Below, Gifford strikes a pose in his Tyvek clean suit. We wear clean suits and clean gloves to handle the core, to avoid contamination from our clothing.
