The Institute of Mineralogy and Geology is the modern successor of the oldest department of the Mining Academy of Selmecbánya (18th century), the College of Sopron (20th century) at University of Miskolc.  It is active in teaching, research and promotion of mineral resources, geological phenomena and processes. Its two chairs work in wide spectrum from petroleum geology through geochemistry to pedology, from remote sensing through mineralogical and petrological laboratory analysis to economic assessment of mineral resources. Its three main focus areas are mineral resource exploration techniques, applied mineralogy, and environmental geology. In several areas we have strong industrial partnerships, e.g. in the geology of ores, non-metallics, and environmental processes.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

UNEXMIN in the Euronews

Published on Monday, 02 July 2018

The dream comes true. After the developing of the scientific instruments, the building of the robot and the lot of laboratory test the UNEXMIN project reached the next phase: the field test. The first field test was in Finnland in the Kaatiala pegmatite mine. You can see the video about the test, which was presented in the Euronews:


We wish good luck for the UNEXMIN TEAM!
