Hand specimens of rocks collected as a part of field work conducted primarily by present and former WGNHS staff members. Samples date from the early 20th century to the 1990s and were collected throughout the state. Many of the samples are described in the historical field notebook collection, and relationships between the samples and the field notebooks have been established and captured in identifiers. Locations for samples were taken from field notes, maps, and accession lists. There are approximately 5,700 hand samples in this collection.

In 2008, Virginia Department of Energy received by donation from the University of Virginia (UVA) a large collection of rock, mineral, and fossil specimens that was at risk of imminent disposal or dispersal due to the lack of adequate storage facilities. The collection includes many valuable and irreplaceable geologic specimens collected in Virginia by UVA students, faculty, and geoscientists from the early Virginia Geological Survey. Parts of the collection were at one time displayed in the Lewis Brooks Hall of Natural Science, which opened in 1877. Following the closure of the UVA Department of Geology in the 1960s, the collection was moved to various warehouse storage areas, where it was largely forgotten and...
The Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) is a repository for historical coal mining information in Indiana. It was developed through a cooperative agreement between the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS) and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation. In addition to historical documents, prepared maps and reports, the CMIS has compiled digital geographic data and associated mine information such as workings maps, entrances and subsidence areas. This data is publicly accessible through an online map viewer (link below).
