The most important are iron ore deposits, that are the biggest in Poland. The mining industry of the iron ore was started in XVII-XVIII century, but the real development of the Region as an industrial centre took place at the end of the last century, when a foundry, some factories of metal products, glass-works, chemical factories and limekilns were built here.

After the general description of the Region, author reviewed the history of geological researches. A distinct regularity of the succession of research stages is observed: preliminary studies, determination of lithological stratigraphy, investigation of facies distribution and the palaeogeographical studies, and in the last stage – examination of composition and structures of substratum. All the stages mentioned ar in the stron relation with the economical development of mining industry.
