Finished drilling!

Today we finally finished our 100 meter core. We had a few drill runs in the morning where we were having trouble penetrating, but changing the cutters helped. In the end, our driller Terry reports the following statistics for our drilling operation:

975 minutes of total drilling time (16 & 1/4 hrs) over 3.5 days total site time.
101 runs = with an average of 10.5 minutes per run.
Depth of 10255 cm = an average of 101.5 cm per run

Special thanks to Zach and Dorothy who came along and gave us an extra hand.

Now it's on to the next activities...
