The Division of Geology and Mineral Resources is currently working on a variety of projects related to geologic investigations throughout Virginia. In addition to researching mineral and energy resources, our geologists produce geologic maps to expand and improve our understanding of Virginia's complex and rich geologic history. Many of our projects are a collaborative effort between the professional science community and other state and federal agencies. Use the images below to browse each of our active and past projects.
