Bukasa Mukendi Pitchu, Associate Professor from the University of Namibia, got his PhD in Russia and continued his studies in Canada. Despite some 12 years have passed since the graduation date, he is still using tools and techniques he learn while studying in the Mining University. This January, he paid a visit to St. Petersburg.

We decided to create “Mining in Russia” as a place for everyone to share news and opinions on mining and oil & gas industries. We feel it is important to remember that modern technological advancements were made possible by hard-working people deep down under the surface. Now that we enter the era of 4th industrial revolution “Mining in Russia” sets out to pay tribute to industry professionals and familirize our readers with new trends and techologies in Russia and beyond.
The universities of St. Petersburg attract high school graduates from many regions of Russia and different countries all over the world.
