Drilling Report: Arrived on site with DPI already starting to dig out the circulation pits. DPI trucks (two) traveled to Nairobi to get water storage tanks. Measured tools inside core barrels to see if any adjustments need to be made. Hoisted up core barrel with tool inside and lowered down inside the casing to bottom with mainline to see if any debris or fill was inside of casing, rods went all the way down to bottom, casing is clear. DPI crew set up lighting system for night drilling operations, fuel/flammables containment area and will finish digging circulation pits in the morning, line pits and fill with water. Aside from minor rigging up and finishing touches, we are pretty much ready to start drilling operations on June 1st 2013. Beau communicated with Judy (Import Tracking) at Kenfreight and received confirmation that the containers will be loaded on trucks today. Just after 8pm he received confirmation that trucks are leaving Mombasa in the morning and will arrive in Nairobi (NOCK Yard) sometime tomorrow afternoon. Beau and I will be traveling back to Nairobi at 7:30am tomorrow morning to receive the containers and unload items on Thursday. Beau flies out of Nairobi early Friday morning and Mike and I will travel back to Baringo Friday as well. Everything is on schedule!
