Brandon University celebrates opening of new Geology Core Lab

I'm a few days late in posting this, but it's still worth reading. Given the importance of resources to our economy it is nice to see that students can work with real samples.

Brandon University geology students, faculty members and industry representatives celebrated the official opening of the university’s first Geology Core Lab recently. The lab houses various examples of mining and petroleum drill cores and provides students with the opportunity to practice their knowledge and prepare for their chosen geology profession by working on real drill cores from mines, exploration projects and petroleum deposits.
