The root of Mines and Geosciences Bureau dates back during the Spanish regime, when it was then known as the "Inspeccion General de Minas". Under the Philippine Revolutionary Republic, a Mines Section under the Director of Industry and Agriculture of the Departmento de Fomento was formed by a Presidential Decree of 1898.

Nowdays, the MGB is directly in charge in the administration and disposition of the country's mineral lands and mineral resources; The MGB, as steward of the country's mineral resources, is committed to the promotion of sustainable mineral resources development, aware of its contribution to national economic growth and countryside community development.

MGB envisions a minerals industry that is not only prosperous but also socially, economically and environmentally sustainable, with broad community and political support while positively and progressively assisting in government's program on poverty alleviation and contributing to the general economic well being of the nation.

MGB also aims to be the leading geoscience and georesources Bureau serving the public and nation with scientific reliability. To realize its vision for the industry, MGB subscribes to the core requirements of Sustainable Development as applied to mining and geoscience.
