Team Zaagi’igan worked in the Lac Core lab for the first time today. We took our core samples from Big Sandy lake and cut them length wise in half using a super awesome saw. One side we kept to examine and make slides from and the other side was processed and put into permanent cold storage. Once the Sandy cores were given to Ma’Ko’Quah and Ida to examine, the cores from Perch and Mud lake were brought out of cold storage to be identified and so that smear slides could be made for later use.
