I'd probably start by center-punching and drilling with a left handed drill
bit.  With any luck, the bit will grab and back it out.  If not, you've got
a hole to try your favorite screw extractor.  If that fails, next step might
be to try to weld a hollow bolt to the end of the stud (although I'm not
sure how practical that is down that deep of a hole).

Last resort, I've got an article on how to build an EDM machine <g>
