CA79 was extended at its southern perimeter with a two meter by two meter rectangle at 65E/41S and 63E/41S to 65E/43S and 63E/43S. The entire extension was declared Locus 4 .

Opening photos were taken. Soil in Locus 4 is very dark brown, filled with roots, stumps and numerous small stones. Soil consistency is loose and hummus like.

This morning work began in Locus 3 concentrating on revealing the wall/linear rock feature. We used mini-picks to break up the soil.
