Studies in France and the first job of Ignacy Domeyko (1802–1889).
A b s t r a c t. The paper presents information about Ignacy Domeyko, outstanding geologist, mineralogist and mining engineer, His studies in Paris and His stay in France (1832–1838). We analyzed the memoirs of I. Domeyko, developed and published in 1908 by J. Tretiak. Domeyko attended lectures, in 1832–1837, on mathematics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, zoology, botany and geology at the most famous Paris universities and schools: Sorbonne, Collge de France, Muséum d’Histoire naturelle, École d’Arts et Métiers, École Polytechnique and École des Mines. Léonce Élie de Beaumont played an important role in directing the interests of I. Domeyko to geological and mining sciences. The first job in the profession are indicated, including prospecting for iron ore in Alsace. We are also signalling for relations with France and the Paris institutions in which he studied during his stay in Chile.
