The institute of mineralogy, geochemistry and crystal chemistry of rare elements (IMGRE) was created 55 years ago in system of Academy of Sciences of the USSR as the specialized research organization for studying of mineral resources of rare metals in the former Soviet Union and foreign countries. The main tasks of this direction were and remain actual today:

This studying mineralo-geochemical rational environmental management, innovations and education. of features of ores of rare elements; genesis research rare metal of objects and regularities of their placement; development of new technologies of enrichment and processing of rare metal raw materials, geological and economic monitoring of mineral resources of rare elements in Russia and the world.

The last 25 years of Federal State Unitary Enterprise IMGRE – basic institute of geological service of Russia on rare elements and on multi-scale expected and search geochemical works.

Today IMGRE is innovative technologies of studying and reproduction of MSB of rare metals in Russia, the CIS and the world. It is the multi-purpose geochemical mapping of territories based on approbation and the analysis of the main environments: breed – the soil – vegetation – water – the atmosphere – the person.

These are the modern expected and search geological and geochemical complexes original and widely approved in practice, and also new receptions of an assessment of influence of the industrial and mining enterprises on environment.

These are new methods of preparation of geochemical tests (including allocation of superthin lungs and heavy fractions) with their subsequent analysis by precision analytical methods. Creation of polyelement geochemical cards of different function and complex physics - geological and geochemical interpretation of data is made by means of the original computer GEOSCAN programs, EKOSKAN, GEOPOLE which are property of IMGRE. environmental protections, energy efficiency, rational environmental management, innovations and education.
