Summit Station – June 8, 2019

Summit Station, Day 5 (6/8/2019): Today was dedicated to moving the drill over to the Baker Hole site and getting everything setup and prepared for drilling. This included digging an additional lower trench 1.5 meters deep for core barrel removal and ice core storage (it’s 20 F cooler in the lower trench than the ground surface in the tent!). It will be very critical to keep the lower components of the drill well below freezing while the drill is removed from the hole. We also setup the control station and mounted the drill and installed the coring system. We fired everything up and all systems are a go… we should be off and drilling tomorrow! Stay tuned.
