by W.W. Whitlock, J.A. Lovett and R.N. Diffenbach, folded 30 x 60-inch color 1:24,000-scale geologic map with explanation, 1988. Geologic map and explanation describe the stratigraphy, structure, and economic geology of the Wise 7.5-minute quadrangle and the coal-bearing portion of the Fort Blackmore 7.5-minute quadrangle in Wise and Scott counties. Appalachian Plateaus and Valley and Ridge sedimentary rocks and recent allluvium and colluvium are delineated with cross-section and stratigraphic column with outcrop-derived gamma ray log. Inactive sandstone quarry, coal prospects, oil and gas test wells are plotted. Repository sample locations for coal and fossil samples are depicted. The detailed economic geology section discusses coal, coking operations, clay and shale, and sandstone for economic potential.
