Virginia Uranium Inc. is suspending its campaign to attempt to overthrow the 30 year long moratorium on uranium mining in Virginia


Newly elected Governor Terry McAuliffe said during the election campaign that he would not support lifting the state's decades-long ban on uranium mining and he reaffirmed that position after his election.

Full-scale uranium mining has never been conducted on the East Coast and opponents said Virginia would be a poor place to start, citing its wet climate and the fierce weather that often rakes the state.
