14 We almost certainly have found the ore store

Trench 6b (Tuesday's extension) was opened by Paul to see whether the distinctly orange layer in the corner, which is characterised by 'cobbles' set into it, continued further. As can clearly be seen, it does.  
Mike has reached the same material at the same depth in a test pit further up the slope.  Trench 8 was also taken down a blue grey layer of very high quality clay.  A slice of this became adobe hard within a couple of hours.  We almost certainly have found the ore store in this trench.
John & Paul recited Kipling & Shelley while trenches filled with water!
