Drilling is done!

Drilling is done!

Today we finished drilling at 38 meters, but ran the risk of an internal collapse so we set the casing at 37.1 meters. We are optimistic about the geophysics at this depth with the material that is coming out of the well, but the flow rate will be determined by a pump test tomorrow.

Our colleague Charlie, a hydro geologist from NY, has just joined us and we are very excited to introduce him to the community tomorrow. It has been a very long and exhaustive day so that’s all for now, but more news to come tomorrow!
