Geologic Materials Center opened in Alaska

The Alaska Division of Geology and Geophysics opened a new 100,000 square foot Geologic Materials Center in Anchorage to archive cores and other samples mostly from oil and gas and mineral exploration.  The building was a former Sam's Club warehouse.  It cost $24.5 million to purchase and renovate as a scientific facility.   [Right, crowd at dedication ceremony.  Photo credit, Office of Alaska Governor Sean Parnell]
