UWindsor professor Iain Samson examines core from the Baerzhe deposit in Inner Mongolia on July 2, 2017.

A University of Windsor professor travelled across the globe this summer to dig into the origins of rare metals in the Earth’s crust.

Iain Samson, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, ventured to China for three weeks to teach and conduct fieldwork.

Dr. Samson began the trip by teaching a short course to researchers and graduate students on metals and fluids in hydrothermal systems at the China University of Geosciences Beijing (CUGB) on June 23.
