Key Letter Search of All Mine Disasters in the United States

Enter key letters of a mine name:      


Search Tips:  This page enables you to return targeted results from a 980 record datatbase by entering either a complete or partial mine name.  Upper or lower case can be used.  (See screenshot)

You should avoid entering a single letter as this will return all mine disasters with that letter in the mine name.

Caution:  Do not include the words “mine” or “colliery,” such as Sago Mine or Sunshine Mine.  This will normally return “No record found” to your query.

Multiple disasters will be listed in descending fatality order.
