The Nigerian Mining and Geosciences Society (NMGS) succeeded in 1977, the Nigerian Mining, Geological and Metallurgical Society (NMGMS) which was founded on 15 January, 1961, and officially inaugurated on 17 December, 1962. Among its objectives, are the advancement of the study and practice of mining, geological sciences and metallurgy, and the promotion of the acquisition and dissemination of scientific contributions and knowledge in the relevant fields. The Society also ensures the protection of the ethics of the respective professions, and has statutory representation in the Council of Nigerian Mining Engineers and Geoscientists (COMEG) enacted into law by the Federal Republic of Nigeria Decree No. 40 of 1990. The categories of membership are Student, Graduate, Corporate, Fellow, Institutional, Affiliate and Honorary Member/Fellow, and the current strength of ca. 3500 includes Nigerian and foreign professionals and practicians working or have worked within the country.
This multi-disciplinary publication was initiated in 1963, and to 1965 titled the Journal of the Nigerian Mining Geological and Metallurgical Society. Its current title, Journal of Mining and Geology adopted from the edition for 1966, was modified between 1982 and 1987, as the Nigerian Journal of Mining and Geology. The production of the Journal is normally biannual (2 issues per volume) in March and September; and from Volume 35 No.1 1999, has being under the aegis of the Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF). The publication has international contributorship, circulation and citation.
