Test drilling of the new drill rig (see this story) proceeds and last Friday the first 6 m of core were catched from the Cretaceous of southern Sweden by wire line tripple tube drilling in size NQ3 at a depth of 77-83 m.
Prof. Leif Bjelm and Dr. Jan‐Erik Rosberg from the Department of Engineering Geology at Lund University have recently comissioned a Christensen surface core drilling rig, model CT20. The CT20 is a new design complying with the latest safety and environmental regulations and it has a technical capacity for diamond core drilling down to 2500 m in NQ‐size. A major part of the in‐hole equipment was delivered by Boart Longyear.
SDDP and its projects are covered by papers in Volume 132 of GFF, the Journal of the Geological Society of Sweden. The link to the GFF volume is http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/title~db=all~content=g922087997
