The NZ intermediate drill is ready for a drill test and it is moved to the 5 m deep inclined trench we have prepared for the drill behind the mechanic garage. The Pisten Bully came in handy to lift the drill from the carpenters garage to behind the mechanic garage.

At noon we stopped processing the brittle ice and the afternoon was used packing ice core boxes and preparing for the processing of the NEEM2010 S2 shallow core.

No more deep drilling and logging.
