WHO's WHO Acknowledges Mesa Karate Instructor

Noted geologist, writer, lecturerm artist and martial artist, Soke Hausel was awarded membership in Who’s Who in the Science & Engineering 2011-2012 (11th edition) for contributions to the geological sciences, writing and public speaking. Since Who’s Who began publishing this prestigious biographical reference book and awards, Hausel has been inducted into seven of the Science editions. He has also been inducted into Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in the 21st Century, Living Science, Great Minds of the 21st Century and 2000 Outstanding Scientists of the 21st Century. But how does a grandmaster of martial arts end up in Who's Who in Science and Engineering for geological science? Easy suggested Hausel - "one must learn which rocks to 'break; and which ones not to 'break' ".

Grandmaster Hausel teaches his students tameshiwari as he does most every spring or fall - the breaking of rocks.

He is only one of a handful of geologists in history to discover several major mineral deposits that include gold, colored gemstones and diamonds. His discoveries included a major gold deposit in Wyoming and also a world-class gold deposit in Alaska. Because of being a contract research geologist, he was unable to benefit financially from any of his research.

It may take many decades to realize how valuable some of these are. For instance, two of the gold deposits found in 1981 and 1988 in Wyoming and Alaska are just now in the exploration stage. And his discoveries of world-class colored gemstone deposits in the central Laramie Mountains remain unmapped and mostly unexplored due to questionable dealings of the state of Wyoming and the past Democrat administration.

Prior to 1977, Wyoming was thought to be gem-poor other than jade. Today, Wyoming is considered to be the Gem Capital of North America, because of dozens of gemstone discoveries made over 30 years of mapping and research. Wyoming is now known for diamonds, ruby, sapphire, water sapphire (iolite) and numerous other gem deposits.

As an author of >1000 books, professional papers, magazine articles, abstracts and geological maps, and >1,000 km2 of original geological mapping, he stands alone.

He has been presented numerous awards over the years including the President's Award, the Archimedes's Award of Geological Sciences, the Wyoming Geological Association's Distinguished Service Award and was inducted into the National Rock Hound Hall of Fame and Millennium Hall of Fame. He has also been inducted into 13 other Halls of Fame for Martial Arts.
