The day began with a beautiful half-moon over the mountain and a drill bit change. Then the rain came to drown us for a couple of hours. But just after noon, reaming was finished and core drilling could continue. Today and tomorrow, Åre hosts the spring meeting of FAB, Föreningen för aktiva i borrbranschen (a driller's association, www.fab.w.se), with lectures about COSC science, technology and the Caledonides in general (Henning Lorenz, Jan-Erik Rosberg and David Gee). This very interested group visited the drill site in the afternoon, and discussions about scientific and drilling equipment were very stimulating. Furthermore, we came across the first water-conducting fractures at 986 m and began the DNA and ATP screening for the microbiologists. As you can see, we are approaching 1000 m driller's depth - most likely Iwona, Barbro & Tristan will be the lucky ones to handle this core.
