Gold mining is toxic. Urge lawmakers to protect our health and clean water!

Having worked to defeat the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and its toxic compressor station, the residents of Union Hill in Buckingham County have a new threat to worry about: a massive proposed open-pit gold mine in their community.

A Canadian company has already been drilling on an exploratory basis and is touting Virginia’s complete lack of regulations to its investors and shareholders. If this project moves forward, make no mistake about it: the citizens of Buckingham and everyone downstream will be in harm’s way.

Contact your lawmakers now and tell them to support House Bill 2213 to protect public health and clean water from a massive gold mine practically on the banks of the James River.
