Summary

In 1971, the Division of Mineralogy took the place of the Division of Applied Mineralogy. In the late 1970s part of the Division broke away, joining the Division of Process Technology to form the Fuel Geosciences Unit. In September 1984, the Division of Mineralogy changed its name and the Division of Mineralogy and Geochemistry was established.
