Google honours Canadian geologist
from Canadian Mining Journal
Google recently honoured Canadian geologist Joseph Burr Tyrrell by dedicating its Doodle to him. Tyrrell, who was born in Weston on Nov. 1, 1858, is best known for having discovered the Albertosaurus sarcophagus in 1905 around the foothills between Calgary and Edmonton and the illustration represents just that. However, the Ontario man had a prolific career in mining, having discovered coal around Drumheller, the Kirkland Lake gold deposit in northern Ontario and paying special attention to the development of the district of Cobalt.
