National Miner’s Day honors the contributions of miners across the country. Additionally, the day reflects on their sacrifices and offers time to show appreciation to the mining country’s hard-working individuals.
National Miner’s Day marks the anniversary of the worst mining accident in history on December 6, 1907, in Monogah, West Virginia. The disaster resulted in the deaths of 362 miners. In 2009, Congress proclaimed the day be observed each year on December 6th.
Throughout the day, learn about mining history and how the industry changes year after year. Attend a mining memorial ceremony. While there, familiarize yourself with the dangers and health conditions associated with mining.
Another way to participate is by becoming educated about mining. Thank miners, you know, for their hard work. Visit a mining museum. Watch a mining documentary. If you’re a miner, share your experiences with others.
