    Enough water to pump it over the mountain...

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    Lucas email dated September 25, 2013:
    I am excited to report that we found water in Sarara 1 site. According to the driller and the water engineer the water yield is more than 8 cubic metres. (This means there is enough water to pipe it over the mountain to Wamba.)

    After drilling begun on September 21st, the rig struck water on September 24th and drilling was complete on September 25th. There are many happy people in the Sarara Community!
