Professor Chingiz MirAli ogli Kashkay

PhD geochemistry and mineralogy


Chingiz MirAli ogli Kashkay was born in Baku in 1941. After graduation from Azerbaijan State University, Geology faculty, since 1962 was working in Institute of Geology of Azerbaijan Academy of Science. From 1967 to 1975 defeated thesis’s “Physical-Chemical conditions of Alunite genesis” and “Alunite group and it’s structural analogs” obtaining PhD degree. He experimentally studied Alunite conditions of genesis and structural analogs, he was first who sensitized various minerals from Alunite group, examined it thermos dynamical parameters. As part of this research, new methodologies and equipment were developed for uninterrupted thermo analysis. There were using wide range of mathematical methods applied to natural resource modeling in course experimental and scientific geochemical researches in his works. During the last 10 years, he was working under governmentally granted in-situ leaching (ISL) project for gold mining, as well as practical implementation of the technology for alumni production from alunite ore.

He had actively participated in mud volcanism researches for application of volcanic mud therapeutically properties

He is an author of more than 100 scientific articles, seven monographies and technical dictionary. Having 23 scientific discoveries, patented in Azerbaijan, USA, Canada, Germany, France and Switzerland. 


Chingiz MirAli ogli Kashkay died at June 21, 2020 in Baku city.





Field of researches in ore and non-metalliferous geological objects including the nature waters and mud volcanism; study of physico-chemical and thermodynamic conditions of mineral formation and and their associations on the basis of experimental simulation; decision of geotechnological of underground leaching of precious metals and practical implementations of geotechnological processes.
