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. Our latest creation is shown below, a 64 square foot drying table that can hold up to 24 core boxes. 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.

Our drying table, built largely from scrap material found at the drill site, awaits boxes of core to dry in the Lāna‘i sun
