Navcam panorama of Mount Remarkable at the Kimberley, including planned drill location, sol 606
At the southern corner of the Kimberley, Curiosity approached the base of Mount Remarkable. The science team selected a location within this panorama to approach and drill.

Here is a zoom in on one of the Navcam images showing the proposed drill location at the Kimberley, according to Ken Herkenhoff. The images were taken on sol 606 using right Navcam, left Mastcam, and right Mastcam.
