About Ignacio Domeyko Ancuta

Ignacy Domeyko or Domejko, pseudonym: Żegota (Spanish: Ignacio Domeyko) was a Polish geologist, mineralogist and educator. Domeyko spent most of his life, and died, in his adopted country, Chile. After a youth passed in partitioned Poland, Domeyko participated in the Polish November 1830 Uprising against the Russian Empire. Upon its suppression, he was forced into exile and spent part of his life in France (where he had gone with fellow Philomath, Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz) before eventually settling in Chile, of which he became a citizen. He lived some 50 years in Chile and made major contributions to the study of that country's geography, geology and mineralogy. His observations on the circumstances of poverty-stricken miners and of their wealthy exploiters had a profound influence on those who would go on to shape Chile's labor movement. Domeyko is seen as having had close ties to several countries and thus in 2002, when UNESCO organized a series of commemorations of the 200th anniversary of his birth, he was referred to as "a citizen of the world".

Ignacy Domeyko Ancuta (July 31, 1802 – January 23, 1889) was a 19th-century Polish geologist, mineralogist and educator who was born in Nesvizh, Imperial Russia (present-day Belarus), into a noble Polish-Lithuanian family or szlachta . Domeyko spent most of his life, and died, in his adopted country, Chile. After a youth passed in the partitioned Polish-Lithuanian lands, Domeyko participated in the November 1830 Uprising against the Russian Empire. Upon its suppression, he was forced into exile and spent part of his life in France, where he completed his studies, before eventually being hired by the Chilean government to teach science in the northern part of Chile, and where he later was made an honorary citizen for his contributions to his new country. He has been called "the sage Domeyko" not only for his discoveries of important new mining areas but also for his contributions to education. He was one of the founders of the University of Chile where he later became the rector for twenty years. He also studied the country´s geography, geology and mineralogy. His observations on the circumstances of poverty-stricken miners and of their wealthy exploiters had a profound influence on those who would go on to shape Chile's labor movement. Domeyko is seen as having had close ties to several countries and thus in 2002, when UNESCO organized a series of commemorations of the 200th anniversary of his birth, he was referred to as "a citizen of the world".
