The Division of Geology and Mineral Resources' (DGMR) role is to develop and make available information that allows people to make informed decisions that promote the wise use of Virginia’s geologic resources and the continued growth of its economy. DGMR will accomplish this by supporting our natural resource-based industries, coordinating research efforts with economic development activities, and improving data accessibility. Our cooperative relationships with major universities, the U.S. Geological Survey, and other organizations will allow us to continue to strive for maximum efficiency and impact in our geological studies.
