by J.E. Nolde, M.L. Mitchell, and J.K. Polzin, multicolored geologic map with 28 page text, 1984. Map shows the geology and mineral resources of the Prater and Vansant 7.5-minute quadrangles. The map area is located in the southwestern part of Virginia in Buchanan and Dickenson counties. It lies entirely within the Appalachian Plateaus physiographic province and is characterized by steep-sloped ridges and narrow valleys. The bedrock in these quadrangles ranges in age from Lower to Middle Pennsylvanian. Generally, the strata in the map area have a gentle northwest regional dip. Coal is the primary mineral/energy resource in the map area. Twenty coal beds crop out in the quadrangles, seven of which have been mined. Other mineral/energy resources include natural gas, shale and siltstone, clay, and sandstone. Map includes cross-sections.
