EOAS Award – Endeavour Silver Corporation Scholarship 2015

July 2015

Catherine Armstrong, our MSc student has recently been awarded the Department’s Endeavour Silver Corporation Scholarship. The scholarship was awarded for her project entitled: “Isotopic fingerprinting of the enriched component of the Hawaiian mantle plume”.

This high precision geochemical study of Hawaiian basalts will help unravel the processes governing the composition of numerous mantle plumes, with transformative implications for the composition and geodynamics of Earth’s mantle.

Congratulations Catherine!!
