A distinct Mining Dept. was first established in Victoria in 1863, taking over the existing organisation of mining law administration; responsible ministers frequently had other departmental responsibilities, including Water Supply. A separate Secretary for the Victorian Water Supply was appointed in 1890, and these particular functions remained separated until 1903. In 1906/1907 the Dept. was split into the Dept. of Mines and the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission. The Dept. of Mines reverted to its earlier name in 1963/1964. On 1 Sept. 1977 the Ministry of Fuel and Power and the Mines Dept. amalgamated to form the Dept. of Minerals and Energy. In March 1985 the Dept. changed its name to the Office of Minerals and Energy. Works by these bodies are found under the name used at the time of publication
