Cave Entrance


31085. Brajko just started his descent down the entrance shaft.



Junction at the First Depot


31086. Brajko at the phone, new enhancement for the work in the cave, as it is far more convenient to have the outer team not at the cave entrance but below the awning, especially in the heat or in the rain.



31088. Blaž was building a wall of stones at the end of the side tunnel, the first depot, to make more room for the new excavation material. In the picture: Blaž in the inner chamber of the depot.

31097. ... and as it was today, after Jerko crushed and removed the bridge in the image center. The tunnel is about 1 m longer now.



31098. The continuation, lower center left black spot in the previous picture, is an intertwined maze of vertical cracks in the bottom of a near-horizontal fault, widened by the water. It is evident that a few more days will be required to get through this obstacle.



31094. The tunnel end is wide enough but not particularly high - Brajko.



31095. Just above the continuation in the side bottom there is a patch of white flowstone, Brajko
