Dave Kirschner (St. Louis Univ), Jim Evans (Utah State Univ) and Mark Zoback (Stanford Univ) discuss the cuttings samples straddling the main drilling breaks.

Drilling began this morning at 11:50 am with what is likely to be the last bit that will be used during SAFOD Phase 2. We anticipate a further 35 hours of drilling time. The rate of penetration is averaging about 10 ft/hr and the cuttings samples continue to be predominantly shale with less siltstone.
