Did you miss the February 2022 MPDA Speaker?  

COVID has changed how we hear what has been discovered  by our provincial team of geologists. We are all used to hearing about the Field of Activity report from the Manitoba Survey at convention, but COVID has changed that.

We were very pleased to have Michelle Nicolas (Manager and Provincial Geologist, Manitoba Geological Survey) present the findings to us.
