1st June 2013

With Tav, Jake and Nick, Alex working this weekend so couldn’t make it.

With a strong team assembled we were able to shift spoil from the dig face out to the surface. Continued to dig along the left hand side removing a mixture of cobbles, boulders and sediment. There is quite a widening of the rift appearing and removal of some cobbles out of the floor revealed more loose cobbles/boulders but with air spaces rather than sediment and felt a draught. Will need to remove a considerable pile of spoil to get a proper understanding of what is going on. As ever prospects look good!
