Update on Uranium Mining Proposal in Virginia

Those of you who have followed this blog for some time have read some posts about the proposed uranium mining in Virginia, where I will be moving soon to start a farmette.  Well I have been very concerned about this for many reasons – health, Virginia unsuitable climate for mining, a possible scenario for great contamination, and other issues, including our proximity to the proposed site, at only a few miles.

Well, today I am sharing the good news and that is – THE PROPOSAL WAS DEFEATED!  At least for now, but this is great news.  Here is where you can read about it – Uranium Mining Proposal Suffers Major Defeat/Keep the Ban.  I am extremely happy about this, and I am thanking again all of you who voted to keep the ban in uranium mining in Virginia.  I will keep you informed on the latest developments.  If you want to read more on this important issue that affects other states such as North Carolina, since its supply of water comes from Virginia, in part, you can visit the Keep the Ban website.

  1. This all sounds like the beginnings of a 50’s B movie plot and just as creepy. I’m trying to be funny; but have you ever considered just jumping on board and mining uranium yourself?

  2. LOL, I don’t like the idea of having a green tail. No seriously, we are very close to the site, at only around 5 miles, probably less, which concerns me if that ban is lifted in the future.
