Energy and Resources
Victoria’s energy and earth resources industries continue to support the economic development of the State, with opportunities to increase investment in mining and resources, secure regional and economic benefits and improve the performance of the sector.
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 provide a single point of entry to link projects with the help they 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.
