Looking good at Kilmarie!
The amount and shape of the drill cuttings (tailings) could bode well for a sample in the sleeve, fingers crossed they can get this one inside SAM smile.gif
Nice to see two sample holes in one NavCam frame smile.gif
Kilmarie is on the right side

Simple 'blink GIF' of the R-MastCam frames of 'Kilmarie' on sols 2381 and 2384, roughly aligned by adding margins.
Note the movement of sand and pebbles and the colour differences in the cuttings (tailings)
Those cuttings height appears to be a little smaller than I estimated from the NavCam frames, hope that it's deep enough to have got enough powdered rock into the drill sleeve for analysis.
