Geological occurrences and events that have largely influenced the whole World throughout history from the past to the present and, will affect in the future, take place on the Earth’s crust as a result of inner dynamics of the Earth. Therefore, it is essential to know and describe the Earth’s crust very well, to turn the data obtained into the usable knowledge and share.

Considering the size of the Earth’s crust stereoscopically, it is obvious that there are many things to achieve, and a long way to go. As such, MTA is in a position as it were a guiding compass a making research to know and to describe the Earth’s crust and sharing the data obtained through research process

The vision is to describe the achievement in future from now on, and to do whatever is necessary with great enthusiasm to reach the success in future. The vision of MTA is based on the frame of this merit and approach

“to provide services of exploration, research, analysis, infrastructure and database in earth sciences and mining for industry and community through scientific and technological methods in a effective and efficient way considering environmental issues, to contribute to the prosperity of the country.”
