3rd June 2015

Solo underground but Tangent was on the surface exploring the surrounding landscape, it was a rather fine evening!

Underground I dragged the kit along to the rift north at the bottom of the pot where the new drill (Erbauer 36v)was unpacked ready to be used for the first time. Kept drilling until batteries were fully discharged but only charged 5no. As usual there was high variability in the conglomerate and the calcite. Job done it was time to return to the surface and a satisfying pop was heard, cave locked, and off we went.
