Collinsville History

(1954 Mining Disaster)
This story, told by Robert "Bob" Munro, is his recollections of the 1954 Mining Disaster in Collinsville when a gas outburst killed 7 underground miners almost 60 years ago..
These men were not only miners but more importantly they were sons, brothers, husbands and fathers within our local community and their deaths are still commemorated every year in Collinsville on the 13th October.
May they rest in peace.
