CONTRIBUTION OF POLISH GEOLOGISTS TO THE DISCOVERIES OF MINERAL DEPOSITS IN SIBERIA AND THE FAR EAST

Abstract. Systematical studies of Siberia and the Far East regions were started in the beginning of XIX century. Poles participated significantly in those studies. There were deportees after overthrowing of the following insurrections and also voyagers, explorers and industrialists – all of whom were attracted to that region by nature and cupidity. There were a lot of geologists among those people. Their interests ranged from ethnography, zoology to botany. They also carried on meteorological and topographical measurements. In the present paper, there are outlines of such well-known explorers as: Aleksander Czekanowski, Jan Czerski, Karol Bohdanowicz or Józef Morozewicz and, less famous, Antoni Giedroyć, Leonard Barszczewski, Bronisław Grąbczewski, Leon Jaczewski, Kazimierz Grochowski, Stanisław Doktorowicz-Hrebnicki portrayed. All of them were brilliant researchers, they distinguished themselves in exploration territories east of Ural. After recovery of independence, part of them contributed significant share in developing of geological sciences in Poland.
