It was a pleasure to have an under-graduate student from the University of Winnipeg visiting the CFDC. The student conducted research on the Pierre Shale Formation and the Niobrara Formation along the Manitoba Escarpment.
We spent the entire week out in the field viewing rock units, measuring, data collecting and sampling. The samples will be analyzed in the fall. I think its been a great experience for the CFDC, the University of Winnipeg and the student. I'd like to see the CFDC partner with more organizations in the future, especially when everyone can benefit.
I'd like to thank everyone who made our student feel welcome, especially those who helped with accommodations. Thank you!
