At the core yard is Siyanda Mngadi (Wits University student), Kosuke Sugimura, Syunsuke Yoshida, Ryogo Tadokoro, Makoto Kanematsu and Mitsuya Higashi (all Ritsumeikan University students).

An update on scanning – post the workshop meeting scanning commenced. We are now busy with scanning of critical areas around the fault zone from various holes. On Tuesday, 18 September 2018, we concluded the scanning of the critical fault area of the mother hole (Hole A). We started scanning the branch hole (HOLE C). The scanning starts at 579.10 m depth, which is box number 5. This is a very critical section of scanning. As we think that the fault might have been intercepted by this branch hole.
