Good progress today reaching a depth of 8.5 m
Diverter System

Good progress today, reaching a depth of 8.5 m, so the drillers can install the conductor casing to at least 10m tomorrow. The soil and upper section of the rock is clay rich and should form a good seal with the conductor casing. Due to proximity to active CO2 out gassing we are being very cautious and continuously monitor for CO3, H2S, and O2 levels. The drillers are using a diverter in case we hit an over pressurized section of rock. We used a similar system in Yellowstone NP.
