Our activities
Geological survey and research have generated a huge number of geoscientific information, which enabled the DMR to set up the National Geological Standard and Lexicon of Stratigraphic names of Thailand and to revise the existing maps to satisfy the needs of the users.  
DMR carries out research on the development and rehabilitation of abandoned mines, geological conservation sites and geohazard affected areas.
Over a century of mineral resources management, DMR has thoroughly run its duties, ie, mineral exploration, mining, ore dressing and metallurgy alongside with the development of the worlds society and technology.
Fossils have been found in Thailand for centuries, however, the "Posidonomya becheri siamensis” found in Patha Loung Province in 1920 was the first fossil of Thailand that has been named scientifically.
Geotourism promotionn
The DMR has produced much media introducing geosites and geoheritages all over Thailand, aiming to promote both education and geological tourism.Geotourism guide books and DVDs of some provinces have been published and distributed through the website http://www.dmr.go.th  
The cooperating activities include capacity building, paleontological exploration and research, geological mapping, mineral exploration, etc. DMR is seeking for further cooperation with other countries in every geological aspect.
