They are (from west to east) the Taconic Highlands, the Champlain and Vermont Valley, the Green Mountains, the Piedmont, and the Northeast Highlands (Figure 1-1).

Our travels will include stops in all but the Piedmont. The geology and nonmetallic mineral industries of these provinces will be briefly described. Quarrying of true marbles occurs today only in the Champlain and Vermont Valley province, whereas verde antique marble is found and quarried in the Green Mountains province.

Slate, although once quarried extensively in the eastern Piedmont, is produced exclusively from rocks of the Taconic Highlands. Granitic plutons are primarily confined to the Northeast Highlands and thus the granite industry is located within this province. Scenery along the way will be enjoyed as a bonus as the field trip proceeds.
