Still bad weather around. Finally we decided yesterday to go up to the hill just to continue with the second borehole. We got
60 cm depth at the second
point the day before. The second point to be drilled was selected due to the
proximity to the fault but not high temperature in the ground. At the very top
of the column the temperature was 2
ºC. We started to drill and got 60 cm with 67 ºC. Finally, yesterday we
got 1.10 m
with 63 ºC
at the bottom.
Samples look like very interesting due to their composition, volcanic ashes with organic matter. Some bugs are growing after culturing them.
Some animals were very interested in us as represented in the picture.
