And Wu Hao used telekinesis to prevent the spread of dust, firstly to avoid getting himself covered in dust and secondly to avoid impacting the surrounding natural environment.

After all, in the vicinity of all the quarries, whether on the ground or on the surrounding plant structures, a layer of dusty powder would cover everything.

This situation has a significant impact on both the air and the surrounding plants. Now, Wu Hao only needs to use telekinesis to block the scattered dust within a certain range. Once the concentration increases, he can use telekinesis to control a watering can and sprinkle some water.

The water bag that Wu Hao uses to carry water is actually a thick rubber bag. Although the amount of water in each bag is not much, he has prepared several bags that he can switch between continuously.

Moreover, there is a small stream not far from the foot of the mountain. Although it is snowing in the mountains now, the stream has not frozen.

Furthermore, even if the flowing water in the stream freezes, Wu Hao can easily fetch water from the lake 1 kilometer away. The deepest part of this lake is about 40 meters, and even if the surface freezes, it won't affect Wu Hao's water collection.

In this way, after about an hour, Wu Hao dug out a cave with a width of 3 meters, height of 2 meters, and depth of 5 meters.

Since the size of the aircraft in Wu Hao's mind is not huge, this tunnel with its width and height can completely accommodate his future aircraft.

The equipment and materials he purchased will naturally have no obstacles entering the cave because the materials he purchased are not large in volume, mainly consisting of small and precise electronic components.

Speaking of the largest items, there is no doubt that they are the materials with fixed sizes.

As for the broken stones that Wu Hao excavated, he disposed of all of them in the lake. There is no other place nearby to store these broken stones, but since the lake is deep enough and its area is not too small, accommodating the broken stones from Wu Hao's base will not have any significant impact. At most, the water level will rise and spread a bit in the vicinity.

According to Wu Hao's preliminary plan, his base needs to have a total area of at least 3000 square meters to meet his requirements. As for the height, it should average at least 6 meters or more.

The nuclear power facilities among them must be built separately inside the mountain because various radiation protection measures need to be implemented here.

Therefore, according to Wu Hao's plan, he needs to construct four spaces of different sizes: one for nuclear power facilities, one as a warehouse for storing various materials, another larger one as a comprehensive area for research and manufacturing, and the smallest one as the living area.

This area is also the smallest, only a few tens of square meters, equivalent to a small suite!

Anyway, Wu Hao doesn't plan to bring anyone into this base now, so having a small suite for living is sufficient.

"It really is a mentally exhausting and tedious job." After three consecutive hours of splitting stones and clearing the mountains, Wu Hao's telekinetic power was almost depleted.

During the continuous three hours of work, he managed to dig a tunnel about 15 meters deep.

Apart from a few gaps and indentations, the surfaces of this tunnel were smooth and even. It's worth noting that everything Wu Hao manipulated was accomplished using telekinesis, which was much more precise than any mechanical operation currently available to humans.

The gaps and indentations were mainly caused by the small fissures and slight irregularities between the rocks in the mountain itself.

After all, in such a large mountain composed of solid rocks, it is normal to have some gaps and indentations.

In three hours of work, Wu Hao only managed to excavate 90 cubic meters of the mountain tunnel, while the total area of the entire base should be over 3000 square meters.

This area is roughly the size of half a standard football field. Considering an area of 3000 square meters plus a height of 6 meters, Wu Hao needs to excavate approximately 18,000 cubic meters of space in this mountain.

At his current speed of 30 cubic meters per hour, it would take him 600 hours, even if he worked continuously for 24 hours a day. That means it would take him about 25 days to complete the excavation entirely.

Of course, Wu Hao definitely cannot work continuously for 24 hours, and even machines cannot sustain such intensity of work.

However, Wu Hao's current slow speed is due to the excavation of this narrow tunnel. The small size of the tunnel requires more time and reduces efficiency.

Once he officially enters the interior of the mountain and starts excavating the larger space, the excavation speed will undoubtedly increase significantly. With a larger volume, he can reduce many cutting procedures and then use telekinesis to transport the rock fragments, which are divided into several-ton pieces, out of the tunnel.

This way, the work efficiency should double.

However, excluding the time for daily rest and other necessary tasks, Wu Hao can only work for a maximum of about ten hours per day.

In other words, it would take approximately one month to complete the entire base.

Actually, Wu Hao's speed is already quite fast. If this task were assigned to any construction team in any country, it would be impossible to achieve such speed and quality.

Time flies, and it's another day for Wu Hao to release his documentary.

"Let's see how people are reacting online!" Apart from eating, drinking, resting, and recovering for a few hours, Wu Hao has spent the rest of his time on these tedious and monotonous tasks of clearing the mountains and splitting stones.

He hasn't been online or paid attention to the situation of the documentary. He hasn't had time to check the emails piling up in his inbox.

Soon, Wu Hao opened Youdou Video and started watching his own documentary, scrolling down to read the comments.

21st comment: "From the filming environment in this footage, I can confidently tell everyone that this South China tiger is from somewhere in the Qinling Mountains."

22nd comment: "Is the person above an expert in geographical environments? Can you really tell the location just by looking at the trees and vegetation in the footage?"

577th comment: "Ah! Ah! Ah! I really want to go to the Qinling Mountains to see these adorable tigers. What should I do...?"

578th comment: "The person above can go home and dream about it slowly at night..."

Reading the comments below the video, Wu Hao laughed. "I didn't expect people to deduce the general area just from the simple geographical features of the mountainous environment. However, although they can guess that the South China tiger is from the Qinling Mountains, no one will know the specific location."

When Wu Hao filmed these animal videos, he only captured some footage of the forest from a high vantage point and didn't conduct extensive aerial surveys.

By observing the vegetation and forest environment in the footage, the general geographical location could be determined, but it would require people with knowledge of geological environments and familiarity with various plants to achieve that.
