Today was a No News is Good News day
Alan Bartley (MI-SWACO) performs a routine measurement of the driliing mud properties.

Today was a ""No News is Good News"" day here at the site. We are making consistent drilling progress with a steady rate of penetration of about 10 ft/hr, and we've been in a fine-grained, sedimentary lithology since late last night. We will probably need to change bits tomorrow, and then we will proceed to drill to 11,150 ft before we begin our first Phase II coring effort.
