Mining making Surat Basin farms hard to sell

Comment:  People down under are having trouble selling their farms because of the threat of mining!  We need to tell the so call "The Virginia Coal and Energy Commission’s Uranium Mining Subcommittee" that we will not be able to sell our homes or land if they allow uranium mining in Virginia!  Plus the state of Virginia does not care for our familiels in Wise County, VA and the state allows Mt. Top Removal!  Now do you want to buy a house or land near a blasting area!  No to uranium mining!
