Work advancing on the Calibration Hill; June 14, 2011

All the major blasting on the main summit is now complete, and all that remains there is small blasts to leave the platform leveled. The rock excavation on the calibration summit should start during the week of May 24. Fill placement continues on the service platform, and is about one meter below the final level.
