That's a hole in the ground

Yesterday we got to the bottom of the pit. We have finally reached the edges of the contaminated soil.

Today they have started some back filling of the hole and trucking the contaminated soil off site. We don't have firm numbers on the amount but an eyeball estimate is it's over 1,000 tones. This has turned out to be an expensive hole.

On the positive side we have received some comments back from the city as it relates to the site plan. The comments are minor in nature and we are prepared to submit our working drawings this week. Cross your fingers that the process moves along quickly, we would really like to have a foundation permit in hand next week (although with the short week that may be a tad optimistic).

I'll update with some pictures on the range tomorrow but the seed will be going down this week.
