No large-scale gold mining in Virginia!

As a local VA resident, I'm deeply opposed to a potential large-scale mine and the impacts it can have on their groundwater supply, environment, and health.

Also, the likely sites for new large-scale gold mines would be in close proximity to the James River and its watershed, which provides drinking water for 2.7 million people, brings millions of dollars into Virginia’s economy from commercial fishing, and attracts over 6 million visitors annually.
