Coles Hill, VirginiaPhotos, maps and news from Coles Hill, Virginia.Updated October 21, 2017.

Coles Hill is an unincorporated community in Pittsylvania County, in the U.S. state of Virginia. It is the site of the largest uranium deposit in the U.S.; however a 1982 Virginia ban on uranium mining has kept its resources from being used commercially. The lode is the subject of an ongoing controversy about possible extraction. In October 2015, a federal judge will decide whether to lift the state ban.
