ABOUT OUR SOCIETY

The Society of Resource Geology (formerly The Society of Mining Geologists of Japan) was first founded in 1951 by geoscientists, exploration geologists and mining engineers in Japan.

The Society changed its name to the present one in 1992 as its activity became international. The title of the journal changed from Mining Geology to Resource Geology accordingly.
