Message of Scientific Secretary of  Geology & Mineral Resources

Mining and mineral industry are among the most principle god-bestowed resources and Iran is one of the richest countries in the globe on that prospect. Occurrence of such blessings and their role in national economy necessitates greater attention that can be maximally utilized through augmented capabilities, knowledge and experience. Economic activities that lead to enhanced added value of the raw material, especially minerals, are becoming increasingly important in present-day world, and mineral-rich countries must avail of the advanced science and technology in order to thoroughly benefit from their natural wealth. Growth and expansion of mineral industry and developing processes to transform raw minerals into finished products not only optimizes the exploitation of non-renewable resources, but can also lead to greater employment opportunities, and thus enhanced social welfare. To achieve such objectives, however, the first and foremost requirement is to develop science and technology on the one hand, and to communicate effectively and constructively with the international scientists and experts on the other, and the second is the need to protect environment and natural resources in order to allow sustained affluence of the future generations based on such wealth.

Growth, development and prosperity of a country indeed relies on the aptitude and capabilities of its younger generation, and therefore, providing the ground for education and training of youth becomes an irrefutable fact in sustainable development.

Institution of Young Earth Scientist Network and their get-togethers can play a pivotal role in the acquaintances, scientific communication and exchange of ideas among the heirs of the present societies.

Iran Mine House considers the convention of the Fourth Young Earth Scientists Congress in Iran as a positive auspicate and welcomes the young participants from all over the world. We hope that the Congress will initiate closer, more efficient and more energetic collaborations among the future earth science professionals.
