Borehole log data from EPS-1 showing (from left to right): a stratigraphic log showing the altered (black) and relatively unaltered (grey) granite; fracture density (per metre); cumulative filling width (mm per metre); and the infilling type: quartz, hematite, calcite, and illite (shown as “low”, “medium”, or “high” content). Three 25 m-interval rock masses are labelled A, B, and C (see text and Fig. 3 for details)
