Probably a long, long wait for public announcements, but...
- 1. I would be very surprised if they haven't already drilled small holes into the thermal anomaly, and above GG, and also through the back wall in KV62 to see what's on the other side. Why wouldn't they already have done that? It's far simpler, less expensive, and quicker than running yet another series of muon and thermal studies, and is hardly invasive at all, especially considering the (potential) upside of the answers that such studies would yield. Considering all the publicity the MOA has given to those anomalies so far, they obviously consider those anomalies to be extremely important.
2. If they already investigated those anomalies, then the fact that it's taking so long to publicly announce what they found only deepens the mystery of what's really there. Otherwise, surely they would have made great fanfare about it if what they discovered -- a pristine find presumably straight from the Old Kingdom -- further validated the notion that the construction and original design of G1 were products of the Dynastic funerary paradigm.
And it's not like there's no precedent for such delay tactics. Just look at the dead-end in the investigation of the mini-chambers and doors at the top of the QC shafts, the painted glyphs on the west wall of the QC's southern shaft, and the alleged photo archive Zahi generated of the paintings in the RCs years ago.
If reputable scholarly organizations are willing to foot the bill for such simple research, then why resist such research if there's any chance it would reveal more answers?
It's no wonder that there is great suspicion about the MoA's agenda.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
