driller unstopable!

After another 2 days of calm weather, there are several exiting numbers to present. At midnight, the night shift was almost 380 m below lake floor. In the last 24 hours we have drilled 123.74m with almost 100% recovery! The entire team here is doing an excellent job, and we figured out that we are running into a storage and cooling problem here. So we are now planning to send a first set of cores already to Cologne next week to get space here for the next weeks. After hole 1C will be finished, probably at a similar depth as hole 1B (ca 480 m), the borehole logging shall take place. Borehole loggers will come in to day to be on standby for a potential start during the weekend.
