Victor Starostin, Professor, Chair of geology and geochemistry at the MSU (Lomonosov University), PhD:
“- The channel has become an important and necessary element of the Russian geology community. This is the only cross-field information channel that provides current updates not only to those who work, research or study geology but also those who are just interested”.
Valery Maslennikov, Director of Mineralogy Institute of Ural District of RAS, PhD:
“- Creation and development of the First Geological channel are very important to spread scientific knowledge about Earth. The channel shares new problems in the research of origins, mining, and processing of various mineral resources in one of the most natural ways. It also gets us acquainted with the people who create this knowledge in the areas of geology, mineralogy, geochemistry, and geo-ecology“.
Boris Kurtsev, Micromine-Russia, General Manager:
«- The channel helps mining industry professionals to get current data. The information, posted on the channel, helps us stay updated on the latest developments and opinions of leading experts. We take those into account when planning our future operations».
Igor Belousov, viewer: «- I’m really surprised by your channel. It’s very alive and you post interesting well-designed videos pretty often. We do not see this a lot on Russian YouTube…».
