A core barrel filled with fault gouge from the main trace of the San Andreas Fault at SAFOD.

We got it! Today we returned 36 feet of core from the heart of the ''10830"" ft. fault zone to the surface. The core contains many highly fractured shear zones and at least one major interval of fault gouge. The science team is working overtime to describe and curate these samples as we prepare for one final coring run and the open hole geophysical logs.
