While the title of such a site may result in raised eyebrows around certain computer screens, never fear: This site does not deal with the torrid tales of Led Zeppelin or the Rolling Stones, but rather with the brave individuals who made up the Geological Survey of Canada. As the introduction to this motley band, suggests: “Their stories are fascinating; some are amusing and many just plain odd.” In humorously sly sections that bear such names as “Auditioning: the Right Man for the Job” and “Going Country: The Impact of Confederation”, visitors will learn how the nation brought together such noted geologists as Sir William Logan, Alfred R.C. Selwyn, and John Macoun. In the area titled “The Hits”, visitors can learn about some of their greatest discoveries, including the large find at Petrolia, Ontario. Complemented by graphs and charts, the site and its various narratives are a real treat, and will draw in devoted scientists and the unconverted alike.
