HistoryEdit

The Geological Survey of Bangladesh was founded in 1971 immediately after the Independence of Bangladesh. The organization was formed out of the remnants of Geological Survey of Pakistan in East Pakistan. The Geological Survey of Pakistan traces its origins to the Geological Survey of India which was founded in 1836.[1] The agency is run by the Ministry of Mineral Resources.[3] It has discovered a number of mines in Bangladesh.[4]
