Our Charlottesville office will be closed to the public effective April 2, 2020. Our staff will be working from home and still available via phone and email. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause and appreciate your understanding while we do our part to help lessen the impact of the COVID-19 virus. Additional updates will also be posted on DMME’s Facebook and Twitter pages, as needed.

The Division of Geology and Mineral Resources (DGMR) serves as Virginia's geological survey. DGMR performs investigations aimed at reducing risk from geologic hazards and encouraging sustainable development through the wise use of mineral, land, water, and energy resources. In addition to publishing maps and reports, DGMR maintains repositories of geological and geophysical data, as well as rock, fossil, and core samples. With our staff of experienced geoscientists, we are uniquely positioned to provide expert assistance in matters pertaining to the geology and mineral resources of the Commonwealth.
