Tailings sampling

Yesterday, our sampling team including Sasha Wilson (University of Alberta) and Gord Southam (University of Queensland) got onto the tailings facility to sample fine tailings, waters, and biofilms.  Sasha, Amanda and I along with a mine site geologist sampled to a depth of 5 metres!  These samples will give us a great idea of the spatial heterogeneity that exists within the tailings.
