On April 5, 2010, the Upper Big Branch mine at Montcoal, WV, exploded and killed 29 miners.
In an effort to remember those miners, students from West Virginia University's West Virginia Uncovered program are launching an interactive memorial website called Faces of the Mine. The website is dependent on community involvement, using photos, videos and writings submitted by the friends and families of the 29 miners as the majority of its content. This is an intro video for that website.
