The function of the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) is to investigate and report on West Virginia's geology, and to disseminate information to solve problems, enhance economic growth, and promote responsible resource development.

  • WVGES is West Virginia's center for geology, energy resources, industrial minerals, geologic hazards, ground water, topographic and geologic maps, earth science, and much, much more.

  • The Survey is here to serve you--to answer your West Virginia geology-related and earth science questions, whether you are a landowner or engineer, professional or student, private citizen or company representative.

  • Consultations, maps, publications, selected database items, and copies of documents are available at modest cost.
