Bringing the geological engineers acting in the mining sector under the same umbrella has always been contemplated up till today. Turkish Association of Economic Geologists was established on 11th November 2011 in Ankara with the aim of bringing the geological engineers together who exerts their efforts to advance the science based on the mining geology in our country (metallic, industrial rough materials, natural stones, gem stones, fossil solid fuels, radioactive minerals).


Gathering the geological engineers acting in the mining sector under the roof of Turkish Association of Economic Geologists will ensure occupational solidarity among our members working in the same field, and also safeguard the competitiveness that must be in place. Following units have been established in our Association to engage in activities towards reaching our goals; the Occupational Training, Technical Accredited Reporting, Social Activities and Communication, and Web and Publication Commissions.
