Rich Callow who is a postdoctoral fellow with our research group made a splash at the sixth annual Symposium on Oil and Gas Resources.  Rich is only in his first month on this short project, but he has already he caught some media attention with his talk.
Gary Kean of the Western Star interviewed Rich and did an excellent job of commmunicating the research in his article.

Rich is funded through the Petroleum Exploration Enhancement Program to study the Cambrian quartzites of western Newfoundland and southern Labrador. The quartzites in the subsurface have been estimated to have porosities up to 12%.  Richard is specifically looking to test whether those pore spaces might be ichnologically generated as it would appear in the field.

Well done Rich :-)
