Cementing the casing still in progress, core processing area ready

The casing insertion and cementation is still a work in progress, so today I’ll talk a little bit about the science side of the project. My crew and I have our area set up and ready to go, off site and down the hill toward Manele Bay where we have shade, water, electricity, and storage space. The sunny weather of Lāna‘i will be a great asset in drying out the core in the boxes before we stack them into storage. Below is a picture of the rig at the end of the day, ready to begin drilling tomorrow.

By the end of the day, the casing was cemented in place and now drill rods are stacked and ready for drilling tomorrow.
