New Instrumentation for PCIGR

December 2010

The PCIGR proposal led by D. Weis was approved for full-funding from both the Leading Edge Fund (LEF) of the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) in 2009 and the BC-KDF this year.

With the in-kind contributions, PCIGR will receive a total investment of ~$7.5 million to expand and update its geochemical analytical equipment.  The centrepiece of the new proposal is a Nu 1700, a large geometry high-resolution multi-collector plasma mass spectrometer, in addition to other cutting-edge instruments.
