Touch BASE with Precambrian rocks

Drillers delivered 40 m of cores in one day.

The drillers had their best day so far and delivered 8 trays (of 5 one-m cores each).
Current depth of Site 3A is about 70 m and Site 4A reached about 89 m of depth. Altogether 83 high quality core runs are delivered (29 from 3A and 34 from 4A).

Core Processing is advancing well.

The Barberton Archean Surface Environments (BASE) project is drilling precambrian sedimentary strata in the Barberton Greenstone Belt, South Africa.  With an age of about 3.22 Ga, the Moodies Group sediments are among the oldest well-preserved shallow water layers in the world. Eight drill holes will produce up to 500 m core from each hole. More information about BASE and daily news from the drillsite.
