SUDBURY, ONTARIO The Ontario government has pledged $2.5 million to LAURENTIAN UNIVERSITY’s Department of Earth Sciences and Central Analytical Facility. The funds will be supplied from the government’s Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp.
The department will relocate to the Willet Green Miller Centre on campus and purchase state-of-the-art research equipment. The Willet Green Miller centre will be shared with the Ontario Geological Survey, the university’s Mineral Exploration Centre, and its Mining Innovation, Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corp. (MIRARCO). The move will free up much-needed space in the Laurentian science building for other departments.
