nash heroes of the anniversary

On November 22, 2009 90 years since birth and 68 years of labor, scientific and pedagogical and public work of the veteran of work and the Great Patriotic War, the Doctor of Engineering, professor Stepan Stepanovich Sulakshin, the founder of department of the technology of investigation of the TPI (TPU) mineral deposits and her manager (1954-1986) were executed.

S.S. Sulakshin began work in pre-war years. In 1941, being a student of the Moscow prospecting institute, S.S. Sulakshin voluntarily leaves on the front. Its military work in days of the Great Patriotic War is noted by awards of the Red Star, Patriotic war of the I degree and many fighting medals. After the second severe wound Stepan Stepanovich was demobilized from army and continued study at the Moscow prospecting institute.

In far 1952 Stepan Stepanovich arrived in Tomsk after the termination of a postgraduate study and protection of the master's thesis. In 1954 with opening of department of the technology of investigation of mineral deposits he is elected to a position of the head of the department and stretch directs it within 32 years. For these years professor S.S. Sulakshin put many forces in the organization and development of department and specialty "Technology and Technology of Investigation of Mineral Deposits", creation of laboratory base and methodical ensuring educational process for all main subjects.
