The first garnets in the drill core were found at c. 135 m depth.

The depth of the drill hole today: 149 m.. Drilling is very fast at shallow depth, and once core is produced it is impossible to keep pace with the documentation and logging. Presently, it is an advantage that drilling is only daytime. The on-site science team can catch up during night. The geologists were amazed to find the first garnets at c. 135 m (see photo). The first group of drillers went home and a new group will come and be intrtoduced to the drill rig and project. We expect 24/7 drillling to commence in the middle of next week
