Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League Contact: Ann Rogers

The Governor of Virginia established a special Uranium Working Group in 2012 to write conceptual regulations for uranium mining, an industry that has been banned in Virginia since 1984. His action, which advances the uranium mining industry in Virginia, is an affront to very well-documented voter opposition to the plan to mine and mill uranium in Virginia’s water-rich and flood-prone environment, and a flagrant violation of the 28-year-old statewide ban on uranium mining in Virginia. The proposal to mine and mill uranium at Coles Hill has alarmed citizens and municipal governments throughout Virginia as well as in the portion of North Carolina receiving waters from the Roanoke River Basin, which is downstream of the proposed mine/mill site and vulnerable to contamination from fugitive heavy metals and radioactivity. Over 30 municipal governments have passed resolutions in Virginia and North Carolina supporting the continuation of Virginia’s ban on uranium mining. Over 10,000 citizens have signed a petition supporting keeping the ban.

We hope to be part of a national movement to stop extreme energy extraction of all kinds. There are currently three communities in our valley that are threatened by coal mines that are in various stages of leasing and permitting, but there is currently no coal being extracted.

We appear to have just won a major victory against the mine that was closest to “development.” Usibelli Coal’s permit to mine at Wishbone Hill has been declared invalid by the federal Office of Surface Mining thanks to comments made at a public hearing by a Castle Mountain Coalition supporter.

In 1999 the first springs went dry after a round of seismic testing conducted by PotashCorp and Corridor Resources Natural Gas. By 2006 the 60 homes situated overtop of the mine workings had lost all of the natural springs and their wells. The mine has an inflow problem we believe was caused from overblasting and cracking the cap rock. PCS hauls approximately 11,000,000 litres of water out of the mine every 24 hours. This is thought to be a contributing factor to the surface subsidence.
