Increased funding for LITHOPROBE, the largest multidisciplinary study of the Earth's crust ever undertaken in Canada, was recently announced by William Winegard, Minister for Science, and Jake Epp, Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources. LITHOPROBE is one of the most scientifically successful Earth studies ever conducted in Canada. The project is revealing important new information about the dynamic interior forces that formed the Earth's surface and that are the source of earthquakes and Canada's mineral and petroleum wealth. The project involves field experiments in different regions of Canada and uses the latest in high-technology geophysical equipment to probe up to 80 km beneath the Earth's surface.
