The North Staffordshire, South Staffordshire and Warwickshire Coalfields were the major ones in the region although it also includes the southernmost part of the Nottinghamshire Coalfield. There are several small oil and gas fields in the region. Surrounding these shales, sandstones and mudstones are Triassic aged rocks which comprise red mudstones and sandstones.
Rock salt has also been mined or extracted as brines from the north-western part of the region for many years, and cavities in salt are also now of interest for gas storage. There has been a long history of salt production from the south of the region around Droitwich Spa. The areas where concentrations of deep exploration boreholes need to be considered and included in risk assessments for development.
