This year Nokhtuisky training ground at NEFU celebrates its 30th anniversary. As Konstantin Struchkov, the Assosiate Professor of Faculty of Geology and Survey, said, this testing area is unique for Riphean, Vendian and Cambrian basseting preserves the memory of ancient and modern geodynamic processes.
It would be interesting to know that Yakut archeologists discovered well preserved cave paintings at the mouth of Terbyas creek. They also found a cave, where people of stone age lived, on the right bank of the river Lena, Hayirgas area. "NEFU archaeological units spent few seasons doing exploration in this cave. And they've found something interesting", told the scientist.
Over 1200 students of NEFU Faculty of Geology and Survey have had an internship on Nokhtuisky training ground in period of 29 years, as Konstantin Struchkov informed. "The students led by professors acquire basic professional skills for working in the field and at the same time they check if their professional choice is correct. The first training practice is useful not only for studies, but also for education" - the Assistant Professor asssured.
Nokhtuisky training ground of NEFU is located on the left bank of the river Lena, 820 km upstream of Yakutsk in Olyokminsky District, opposite Macha village.
