Needed: Ice Drills
We are staying at the high-elevation Grasberg gold and copper mine—not on top of Puncak Jaya—because some of our equipment has not arrived. We have 99 pieces out of the 106 we shipped, but unfortunately our ice drills are in the missing pieces, and we cannot do anything without those. We are working hard to locate the missing pieces, but at this point, looking at perhaps building a drill for this project out of spare parts here at the mine, as there is no sign from DHL International nor DHL Express. My guess is we will be here until at least June 25th.
While we wait, pictures of ongoing preparations:
