The Department is committed to extensive R&D activity relating to earth resources ranging from surveying to development and usage of energy and mineral resources, which are essential to support a wide range of industries and our lives in today's world. Other points of focus are on the development and usage of earth resources in balance with the global environment, natural disaster forecasting and prevention technology, new energy resources development, and urban mining aimed at the recycling of resources. The Department is made up of three classes comprising seven laboratories: Earth Science and Technology Class (Economic Geology, Exploration Geophysics, Geothermics), Mining Engineering Class (Resources Production and Safety Engineering, Rock Engineering and Mining Machinery, Mineral Processing, Recycling and Environmental Remediation), and Energy Resources Engineering Class (Energy Resources Engineering). Each laboratory pursues its own specific research themes, and also works collaboratively with other research institutes both in Japan and overseas, with research fields being widely developed both nationally and internationally.
