Collecting On Your Own In Virginia
Reported Mineral and Rock Deposits in Virginia
This will give the diehard collector a starting place to collecting in Va. The information here is for the most part from the Minerals Availability System/Mineral Industry Location System (MAS/MILS). Some may be from word of mouth or literature listed on my research page. Most if not all locations are closed, restricted, reclaimed, built upon, etc. and you should do more research before visiting / collecting there. The map above provides links to pages listing past collecting locations and working mines / prospects some with minerals reported for the location.
