This results in unsafe drinking water for my grandparents!

My grandparents have lived and farmed in Buckingham for over 25 years, using groundwater as their main source of water. Virginians do not want to sacrifice our drinking water and agricultural lands for an unstable and transitory industry with a devastating track record around the globe. The risks to our water, land, and air far outweigh any possible benefit of industrial-scale gold mining. And if they say it's safe? Prove it first!
