"Making Gold from Muck"

This week, Canada's most prestigious - and most lucrative - science award was given to a researcher who spends his time studying pond scum. Dr. John Smol of Queen's University was awarded the Herzberg Gold Medal, and the million-dollar prize that accompanies it, for his work as a paleolimnologist. Twenty years of studying the sediments and ooze at the bottom of lakebeds has enabled him to contribute to our understanding of pollution, climate change, and the history of Canada's fresh water ecosystems.

Plus - Scientists discover a classic vintage: nine-thousand-year-old rice wine.

All this and more on Quirks & Quarks, Saturday right after the noon news on Radio One.

You forgot to mention the wine was found in China. Most people thought wine originated in Europe (I think). Surprise!!
