Drilling of IDDP-1 at Krafla continues

25 March 2009, at 21:40 Jardboranir Ltd drill rig Tyr started drilling into rocks again, at a depth of 796.7 m, relative to Tyr’s platform (7.8 m above surface). The photo shows a view from the AD 1724 Víti explosive crater (since the Myvatn Fires), some 0.5 km across towards the drill rig. The Leirhnukur fumarole field is seen in the background as well as craters from the 1975-1984 eruptive fissure of the Krafla Fires, some 1.5 km west of the rig.
