C. Dalrymple Belgrore, Saq,, C.B.K., File No. 711.25 .
Adviser to the Ooreinment,
Ifixploration work within the Additional Area is to be resumed in the
near future and the first Structure Hole to be drilled will be in the
vicinity of the Portuguese Fort. The previous Structure Hole at this loccrtion
did not go deep enough to obtain the desired information.
Depending upon the conditions found at the old Structure Hole, it is
proposed to either (a) deepen that hole or (b) drill another hole in the
immediata vicinity but at a slightly lower elevation.
Will you please advise if this meets with Government approval and, if
the necessity should arise to drill a new hole, if there are any objections
to the drilling of the second structure hole on uncultivated land at a lower
elevation (i.e. nearer the sea).
In the event that the second alternative is necessary the hole will
be completed as a water well or plugged back with cement depending upon
Governments wishes in this matter.
Yours very truly,
