Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Greenbrier Limestone, also known locally as "Big Lime," is an extensive limestone unit deposited during the Middle Mississippian Epoch (345.3 2.1 - 326.4 1.6 Ma). It is everywhere present below ground in West Virginia and neighboring Kentucky and extends somewhat into western Maryland and southwestern Virginia. The name derives from the Greenbrier River and Valley in West Virginia.Greenbrier Limestone is in some places more than 400 feet (122 meters) thick. This great thickness allows the trapping of large quantities of oil and gas.
