[Honeymoon core]
Honeymoon drill core in Adelaide & transfer to the project site.   Following the presentation in Uranium One's offices in the Adelaide CBD, the group was taken to the company's storage facility in the northern industrial suburbs in the latter half of the morning.   There they studied large diameter drill core through the deposit and enclosing sediments from the surface to basement (left), under the supervision of company geologist Rupert Verco.   This soft sediment core of the master callibration drill holes is kept in frozen storage for preservation, with the bulk of evaluation on site undertaken by prompt fission neutron (PFN) scanning of open holes which are logged for lithology during drilling.   At Noon, the group transferred to Adelaide Airport to take the tour charter flight to the Honeymoon project site, 400 km to the NE, in central-eastern South Australia.   The right hand image shows the project site, camp, pilot plant, and in the top centre, elements of the production plant stacked awaiting construction.
