Prof. dr hab. Stanisław Mikulski

This function will take effect on 1 January 2024. This is undoubtedly a recognition for the Polish geological community for their active participation within this Organisation.

The SGA is an international non-profit scientific organisation with more than 1,300 members from around the world. It brings together academics, industry professionals, government organisations as well as doctorands and students from universities interested in the subject of metal ore deposits. For more than 58 years, the SGA has been working to exchange the latest scientific knowledge in the research and exploration of metal deposits, including raw materials critical to the sustainable development of modern technologies.

The PGI-NRI staff are very actively involved in the SGA's meetings, and they also publish in the renowned journal of the SGA—Mineralium Deposita (IF = 4.8). Also visible in the SGA structures is the participation of students from our country, active in the Baltic Student Chapter, which is one of 25 active worldwide. The SGA organises and financially supports numerous events, such as courses, workshops, field trips or scientific research. The activity of our scientists within the SGA is an excellent opportunity to promote the achievements of Polish economic geology worldwide.
