Awards – Congratulations!!

Katrin Breitsprecher was awarded the First Prize in the Mineral Exploration Roundup 2008, Student Poster Contest. Title of the poster: High-precision Pb-isotopic systematics of the Quesnel Arc: a potential exploration tool for distinguishing lower versus upper Nicola Group volcanic rocks. Authors: Breitsprecher, K., Weis, D., Scoates, J.S. & Anderson, R.G.

Caroline-Emmanuelle Morisset was awarded the Second Prize in the Mineral Exploration Roundup 2007, Student Poster Contest, in Vancouver, BC, for the poster: “Rutile-bearing hemo-ilmenite deposits in Proterozoic anorthosite massifs of Quebec” (Morisset, C.-E., Scoates, J.S. & Weis, D.).

And congratulations again to Caroline Morisset for being awarded the Outstanding Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology Section student presentation at the 2006 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), San Francisco, for the presentation “Trace element and Hf isotopic compositions of magmatic rutile from Fe-Ti oxide ore deposits related to Proterozoic anorthosite massifs” (Morisset, C.-E., Scoates, J.S. & Weis, D.).
