WESTERN AUSTRALIA Resource Rich State
100 Plain Street
Perth, Western Australia
The Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation & Safety (DMIRS) facilitates the State's economic development by delivering services and solutions to enhance Western Australia’s business environment. The importance of the resources sector to the Western Australian economy means that a major function of the Department is to promote the sector and administer the legislation regulating the development of the mineral and petroleum industries.
Within DMIRS, the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) gathers, synthesises, and publishes information on the State's geology, and mineral and petroleum resources, producing a huge volume of books, maps and state-of-the-art databases for the benefit of the Western Australian community including prospectors, explorers, miners, and investors.
