DISC Drill Arch Buried In Ice

The inside of the drill arch, where I’ll be working. During the next few weeks, my 2 teammembers and I will be completely disassembling all of this gear, including gantry cranes, winch reels, rack winders, drilling towers, the control room, fluid tanks and pumps, etc etc. Since the arch is almost completely under the ice, it’s actually much much much colder inside than it is outside – we keep the door open as much as possible, except in storms. This view is from my time lapse camera, which will hopefully last all season to capture a sequence of the gear coming down. That’s me in the blue hat.
