About us

Since the Gold Rush of the 1850s, Victoria's earth resources have fuelled our economy. The Resources branch sits within the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions. We help maintain jobs and attract investment to our regions. We ensure the state has the raw materials to power our homes and industries. We support Victoria’s quarry sector so the state has enough building materials for our infrastructure boom.
