Minufiyeh update - inspecting drill core samples

EES Minufiyeh Survey (Joanne Rowland)

On Saturday we welcomed Angus Graham to the site for the first time and gave him a tour around before he started work on the drill core samples. As mentioned on yesterday’s report, we selected material from the site of Kom Usim in Ashmun province, where we cored on the very edges of the old kom. Our inspector, Nasra, spent time sitting with Angus while he analysed and recorded the samples in order to learn more about the methods and possibilities of working with core samples.
