Metal Non-Metal Mines
|The Metal Non-Metal (Quarry) industry in West Virginia can trace its
roots to 1830. At that time the Clay industry started in Hancock County. West
Virginia has conducted safety inspections of quarry operations since 1917 when the first
sand - limestone inspector was hired. Today, quarry operations remain an important segment
of the West Virginia mining industry.
Current WV Health and Safety Metal Non-Metal Regulations have been published and are availble from this office. For ordering information go to our publications page.
