This is the western-most county in Maryland. It is part of the Allegheny Plateau, where rocks have been gently flexed by the late Paleozoic Allegheny Orogeny (mountain building episode). The rocks are generally unmetamorphosed, unmineralized sandstones, limestones, shales and coal measures ranging from Devonian to Permian in age. Coal mines, clay pits, and various crushed stone operations provide the main geological resources produced in the county.
