D. C. - An area planned tor th*> drilling experi- nents of the Mnholp projpct will surveyed nrxt month. The survey is a preliminary st*t> f o- ward the drilling of H hole through he earth's canst. The survey will be conducted in a ten-mile-squatr area off Guada- upc Island. This area has been narrowed down from a much Ian?T area originally surveyed off the Mexican coast. It was learned here that this Pacific area is now "pretty definitely" planned as the site of the experimental drilling In early 1961. The experimental drilling will test equipment and theory before the big drilling when the earth will be pierced to its mantle, a layer about three miles below the earth floor in this part of the Pacific Ocean. However, the area to be surveyed may not necessarily be used for the final drilling of the Mohole. • To Make Survey The survey will be made from the Orca, a ship of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla. Calif. Willard Bascom will lead the survey. He is project director of the National Academy of Sciences' AMSOC Committee, which is running the Mohole project. The survey is designed to "reconfirm" the proposed experimental drilling site, a member oi the Mohole team reported. In this area, the mantle lies about three miles below the ocean floor. Present drilling 1 equipment can go this deep. If the drilling were done on land there would be few problems. But the mantle is deeper under dry land. Thus the drilling must be done from a barage. The drilling rig must go through 1,200 feet ol water before it hits the ocean bottom. All the foreseeable problems- such underwater currents that may bend the drilling rig and surface currents that may move the drilling ship — have been met on paper. "Mathematically," the experimental holes have already been drilled. The figuring fills the office ol j the National Academy of Sciences' I AMSOC Committee, the group j leading the project here. The theory and the math will meet their test next year in experimental drilling. Besides testing theory, the experimental drilling will explore the depth of sediment in various spots. The drilling will also de^ termine whether Mohole should j b > drilled at or on top of a ridge j in the ocean or a valley. I To Drill Shallow The preliminary drilling will be shallow. It will not come near to piercing the earth's crust. But the preliminary drilling is expected to give man new knowledge about ocean silt and to bring up some material from the earth's upper crust. Up until now, scientists have relied largely on outcropping, earthquake waves and explosions for information about the interior ol the earth. The slender Mohole drill may change that. Cores taken from the hole should shed light on the origin of the earth and its evolution. The cores may provide an uninterrupted record of the earth's development for two billion years. The project takees its name from the Moho, an irregular dividing line between the crust of the earth and its mantle. The crust may be as deep as 32 miles below continents.. Under the crust, the mantle extends 1.800 miles. The mantle's rock is believed to be ir a plastic state. In the center of the earth is a nuclear or core with a radius ol :',160 miles.
