Description

The Geological, Mining and Metallurgical Society of India was founded in 1924 with a view ‘to promoting and encouraging the study of geology, mining and metallurgy and to facilitate the meeting of persons engaged in the pursuit of these sciences, to pronounce free and independent opinion bearing on problems and topics relating to these subjects and to safeguard the interests of its members more or less along lines similar to trade guilds’. In 1929, the Society founded its organ – The Quarterly Journal of the Geological, Mining and Metallurgical Society of India, which published original research papers. Subsequently, the journal was published by the Geology Department, Presidency College, Calcutta.

 

The research articles published in the journal were said to have played an important role in ‘formulating policies and developing our mineral resources’. Published articles included D.N. Wadia’s ‘Minerals and National Reconstruction’; C.S. Fox’s ‘Exploration for Minerals’; B. Rama Rao’s ‘Some Remarks on Conservation Export Control of Minerals’; B.P. Agarwalla’s ‘Problems of Nationalisation of Basic Industries’; D.B. Sahana’s ‘Five Year Plan and Development of Minerals in India’; N.N. Chatterjee’s ‘X-ray Study and Coal Cleaning’; S.K. Bose’s ‘Necessity of Electricity for the Development of Metalliferous Mines in India’; W.D. West’s ‘A Note on the Pyroxenes of the Deccan Trap’; and A.M.N. Ghosh and T. Banerjee’s ‘Post-Jurassic Diastrophic Cycles in Assam’.

 

The journal also published the proceedings of the annual meetings of the Society.
