I doubt they even needed to drill a hole to access the thermal anomaly since the heat distribution suggests there's an actual air flow to the outside. They simply stuck a scope through it. That they did this is strongly reinforced by the fact that shortly after second release of some of the data a firm stepped forward and offered to develop and provide the technology to put through a small hole and explore large chambers beyond. That there is a large passage beyond this is certain because the means of transferring so much heat can be estimated by the size of the heat's footprint on the outside. This is obviously not a point source!
Any access to the smaller thermal anomaly would almost have to have been undertaken in public view. They've shown no unwillingness to damage or desecrate tombs or pyramids before in their quest for lost gold so we can assume they already know that there is no lost gold.

I doubt they can see anything beyond the thermal anomaly that is very conclusive. I'd predict it's simply a very narrow and tall passage that bends south or appears to branch at right angles. There's probably not much visible.
It's a wonder they've said nothing more about the results of the scanning from near the top of the ascending passage. The results here should be very interesting. Indeed, they quite possibly can access this new "linear void" behind the chevrons, from the back of the grand gallery.

They'd have never allowed all this new testing if not for the fact they were certain nothing would appear. They figured the worst thing that would be found is internal ramps which would make them feel just slightly foolish. Of course they never predicted thermal anomalies in points that are arranged vertically and horizontally with 80' intervals as my theory predicts. Even after these have been found they can't squeezed them into the narrative so they won't allow data to be published.
I'm beginning to fear there exists a real possibility that they'll not only destroy the data but the evidence as well. It will appear to the Egyptologists in charge that there are simple ways to make sure no one ever finds out.

So long as Hawass is its spokesman and public face we can be certain the motives and goals have nothing to do with finding answers. They are geared principally to looking for gold and secondarily to making sure nothing is released that might shed light on the great pyramid builders. The builders were just simple folk with a "magical" language and not superstitious supermen who heaped tall buildings in a single bound.
