In the first session, the archaeological team opened a block of contiguous 1 x lm test areas, proceeding outwards flora a test pit dug through the approximate centre point of the hoard.
Perth, Australia, Aug 25, 2010 - (ABN Newswire) - Toro Energy Limited (ASX:TOE) (PINK:TOEYF) ("Toro") has completed the extraction of a bulk mineralised sample from a Resource Test Pit at its 100% owned Wiluna Uranium Project.
The project involves 1,000 test pits of one metre square, which will be dug across the country, in back gardens, allotments, school grounds and patches of wasteland, monitored live on television by Channel 4's popular archaeology programme, Time Team.
The television team is challenging thousands of people across the country to dig a one-metre square test pit and go down two feet into the history below.
The plan is to dig 15-20 test pits, each containing approximately 200 tons of material.
The test pit is one approach to directly assess fracturing and stratigraphy.
Other options are to dig a test pit to see what is in the trenches, entirely dig up the trenches, or use a cleanup method in which high-voltage electricity would turn whatever is in the trenches into glass.
