I agree with the thoughts and comments focussed by Virginia Heffernan, in HOT TOPIC, tomorrow’s leaders, regarding the geoscience education and its impact on mineral Industry leadership. In developing countries, majority of geoscience students will find employment potential with the government departments/ mining companies. But, in the recent past, the shift is toward private oil companies and mining companies, which are providing employment through campus interviews and OJT on the job training to meet thier professional requirments.

Now, due to on-going effect of global recession, the unemployment rate in geoscience graduates is fast growing.

There is an urgent need to develop good leadership in resource sector through the patronage of major world class exploration and mining companies, so that we can hold the better future of resouce sector, world wide. There is an urgent requirement of need based applied research in environment, sustainable development resource management and utilisation.
