We have generously been given a shed to use as our workshop and lab while we are here at the station. As we unpack our dive gear and get the compressor and the pneumatic underwater drill running, we begin planning for the days to come. We will be living at the mine for the next ten days, and our accommodations make us feel at home with warm, comfortable beds, hot showers and delicious food. The mining company supports scientific visitors such as ourselves and we are forever grateful to these hard working people who make space to accommodate us.
