So multitalented, a man like an “orchestra”.

That is how the specialists of the professional association call Anatoly Leontievich Okhotin  -

the President of the International Society for Mine Surveying 2016-2019 (ISM), the Head of Mine Surveying and Geodesy Department at Irkutsk National Research Technical University.


Professor Anatoly Okhotin was awarded with the title of an “Honorary Miner of the Mongolian People's Republic”, he is an Honorary Professor of two foreign universities – Karaganda State Technical University (Kazakhstan) and Liaoning University of Science and Technology. The governing body of the Chinese province Liaoning highly appreciated his achievements in the scientific and educational spheres – Anatoly Okhotin together with the other 30 prominent specialists worldwide was awarded a friendship premium and a gold medal for his great contribution to the education development in the province and keeping up the cooperation between Russia and China.


He was affiliated to the Federal Education and Methodics Association (FEMA) and was a full member of the Academy of Mining Sciences as well as the fellow of the Central Committee at the Russian Union of Mine Surveyors. Prof. Okhotin is also the editorial board member for “Herald of Mine Surveying” journal and scientific collected papers at Tashkent State technical University.

He circled all continents and countries of the Earth. He was a fair chef, beloved husband, father of four children, grandfather of seven grandchildren.


Over his 62-year life, Anatoly Okhotin has accumulated a large baggage of professional and worldly knowledge, which he always loved and knew how to share, never refused help.
