Tony Knight is Queensland’s Chief Government Geologist. He leads the Geological Survey of Queensland, whose mission is to help drive economic development from discovery and development of Queensland’s mineral and energy resources.

His focus is to the future, working to help the Queensland resources sector navigate and find opportunity in the global shifts underway across key pillars of the economy and society in energy, industry, sustainability and security of supply.
