Russian Academy of Sciences
Institute of Precambrian geology and geochronology RAS
Laboratory of metallogeny and ore genesis
The laboratory of ore genesis and ecogeology was created
in IPGG RAS in 1985. From 1985 to1995 under direction of academician D.V.Rundkvist,
the laboratory carried out fundamental scientific research on the influence
of geodynamics on metallogenic features in the Precambrian era - from 3.8
to 1.65 Ga.
In 1996 S.I.Turchenko became the head of the laboratory.
Basic research programs, carried out by the laboratory:
1. Geodynamic reasons for the formation of Cu-Ni, Pt-group, Ree-metals and Au mineral deposits in the Precambrian era.
2. Influence of active crust fractures on the health of people.
3. Burial of radioactive waste in Precambrian geological formations.
