Kisgyörgy Zoltán

Geolog, jurnalist


I was born on the 21st of June, 1936, in Árkos (Arcuș), near Sepsiszentgyörgy (Sfântu Gheorghe), in the village where all my ancestors lived. I consider myself the „son of Háromszék” and I am a little proud of it. My father – Béniám Kisgyörgy  (1896-1971) – was a craftsman and an Unitarian, my mother – Irén Sikó (1912-2011) – was the descendent Calvinist Sikó family, originally from Sepsiszentgyörgy. I started my studies in Árkos (Arcuș), graduated the Székely Mikó High School and in 1957 obtained by BA degree at the Babeş-Bolyai University, specializing in geological geography. I started my career as a teacher. In 1960 I have worked as a mineologist at the Köpec-Barót (Căpeni-Baraolt) and then at the Sepsikőrpatak (Valea Crișului) coal mines. Meanwhile, as the hydrogeologist of the Covasna County Tourism Office, I was researching the mineral waters of the area. After the dismantle of the mining industry, from 1990 to the present, I am part of the Háomszék gazette editorial team. I have published numerous researches and books on water geology, geology, paleontology, history of mining and tourism. I am the proud father of two daughters and grandfather of two grand-children.
