This is caprock so it might be hard to drill. I hope we get one!

It would be nice to see them drill / sample one of those darker (capping) rocks, but because of the Feed Extended Drilling) they would need to find a really stable candidate...

However, the first potential drill site candidate appears to be in the lighter toned bedrocks seen in the arm workspace on sol 2700.
Attached is a mosaic of the L-MastCam images of that workspace, I believe the candidate is the Trapezoid shaped block in the upper right of the mosaic.

Looking towards the edge of the Greenheugh Pediment and some rather nice strata seen in this R-Mastcam partial pan from sol 2700, debayered in GIMP and stitched using MS-ICE, no additional processing, so apologies for the green hue as I can't find a way of removing it.

Edinburgh drill hole on sol 2711, judging by the HazCam images acquired during drilling and the tailings shown in this L-NavCam frame there should be a good chance of a viable sample in the sleeve smile.gif

Thank you for that nicely debayered and stitched pano of the sol2711 mastcam set. Its quite a view and am especially intrigued by highly eroded sections especially as seen in the snippet of the pano below, representing this pair of snapshots, looking closer a sinuous curve of apparent eroded pediment boundary appears sharply shadowed appearing in the exposure as if it were some sort of slack cable draped over the landscape. I keep losing my bearing as to where we are so have no idea if Curi is heading towards that particular area or onward elsewhere..

We had this MR view of that feature, though with a bit different lighting:
