HSPDP March Madness!! Frank Schäbitz, Henry Lamb, and Asfawossen Asrat, PIs of the HSPDP?s Chew Bahir site in south Ethiopia, will undertake a further pilot drilling at the site next month, March 2014. Their aim is to obtain a 50m core which should span the last 200,000 years, and provide valuable information in advance of the main 400m core to be drilled in November-December 2014. The March campaign, using the equipment and expertise of Addis Geosystems Ltd and advised by DOSECC Exploration Services, will also help realise the objectives of the University of Cologne?s CRC 806 -OUR Way to Europe- Project A3.
