Report outlines the geology and mineral resources of Page County, Virginia. Page County is located in the northwestern part of Virginia in both the Blue Ridge and Valley and Ridge physiographic provinces. The bedrock is Precambrian to Devonian, with one known occurrence of Triassic igneous rock. The major structures include, from east to west, the western flank of the Blue Ridge-Catoctin Mountain anticlinorium, the faulted and intensely folded anticlinal structure of the central part of the county, and the synclinal complex of the Massanutten Mountain area. The Stanley fault is found in the Massanutten Mountain area, and the Vaughn fault zone is in the northern part of the county. Mineral resources include gneissic and granitoid rocks and greenstones, carbonate rocks, sand and gravel, quartzose rocks, and clays. There are some copper, iron, and manganese ores in the area.
