Another view of the drilling machine preparing a hole for a rock bolt. The spray painted areas are locations for other rock bolt holes. This is the first lift of the rock slope; everything above it is either crumbly rock or soil material. This area appears to have some fracture planes not found until the slope was begun; the rock bolts will pin these planes together. Photo taken October 1998.
