A small drilling rig will be located approximately 600m from Yearby, as illustrated in the plan above, and will be used to drill a borehole to a depth of approximately 100m.
Drilling will be undertaken between 7.00am to 7.00pm during weekdays and on alternate weekends, with the possibility of 24-hour operations as the works progress.
