Mineral and petroleum deposits have attracted and sustained regional and national demands for decades. Rio Blanco County petroleum deposits in Raven Park and Wilson Park came on line in the mid 20th Century and continues to be productive. Currently, the Piceance Basin is the site of major drilling for clean natural gas in the famous Colorado shale formations, and is also the richest oil shale deposit currently known in the world. Chevron and ExxonMobile are among the companies who have a vital role in the Rio Blanco County economy.

The Meeker Chamber of Commerce has provided leadership in bringing industry and local governments together in ways to maintain the mixed use of this scenic area.
