Earth Resources
in Victoria

Victoria has a vibrant earth resources sector with a variety of commodities including brown coal, gold, petroleum, mineral sands and base metals, as well as emerging industries such as geothermal and geosequestration.

We support and promote investment opportunities in the sector, which includes providing cutting-edge geoscience information to help significantly reduce exploration risk. We also facilitate projects under development in the State as they navigate through approvals processes.

In addition, we maintain an efficient licensing and permitting system for exploration, resource development and operations, including for pipeline activities, and regulate the industry to ensure that environmental management standards are met.
