The mission of the Friends of Buckingham is to protect the natural environment and cultural heritage of Buckingham County.

Friends of Buckingham, Working together for a better community.

We now face a major threat to Buckingham and the entire state of Virginia. A Canadian exploration company found gold in Buckingham. Here’s what that could mean for this community:

  • An open-pit mine hundreds of acres wide and hundreds of feet deep, pulling water from our well sources
  • Massive cyanide waste lagoons
  • Contaminated drinking water, streams, rivers, and lakes
  • Taxpayers left paying millions for an unsalvageable toxic waste site.

We have a fundamental right to clean water, air, and land. A gold mine would violate those rights.
