Michael project is to examine the surficial dispersion of elements from deeply buried uranium deposits. In September, we conducted a field work in the Wheeler River area where the Phoenix deposit lies over 400 metres below the surface.

 

 

Michael is very active. He is engaged in  gLetfs Talk Scienceh and giving talks at local schools.  He will be presenting the results at Saskatoon in the end of November.
