VMN Webinar: Virginia Geology - Questions Answered & Asked

Ever wonder questions such as:

  • When did the Potomac, James, and Roanoke rivers cut through the Blue Ridge, and where did the rivers flow before that?
  • Why is there salt at Saltville, gold at Goldvein, and coal in Chesterfield County?
  • Why is Giles County so worried, when the last major earthquake in Virginia was in Louisa County? 
  • Why aren't energy companies considering fracking for natural gas near Virginia's current oil wells? (yes, we have oil wells...)
  • Is the Blue Ridge wearing away and disappearing over time, or are we seeing the mountains get higher?
