New Instrumentation for PCIGR

PCIGR proposal led by D. Weis to the Leading Edge Fund (LEF) of the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) was approved for full-funding.

PCIGR will receive almost $3 million to expand and update its geochemical analytical equipment, centred around the purchase of a Nu 1700, a large geometry high-resolution multi-collector plasma mass spectrometer, unique in Canada. The results of a proposal for matching funds from BC-KDF are pending, which together with the in-kind contributions will represent a total investment of ~$7.5 million.
