THE CHAMPIONS BEING YOUNG GEOLOGISTS OF KRASNOYARSK
 
The Krasnoyarsk Region that is equal on its area to four areas of France always was an attractive territory for geologists. There are deposits almost of the all the elements of the Mendeleyev`s Periodic Table in the Region. There always was, is and will be a lot of job for geologists here. There is also concern of young successors. About forty years the Internal and Extra-mural School of Young Geologists is already functioning in the Region.
