Remembering those who went to work underground in the Valley and never came home...they helped make the mines safer for all of us who followed.

We are seeking photos of all of those who lost their lives while working at a Shoshone County Mine. Please email us your photo of your friends and family members, Please include their date and place of birth and the day and mine where they passed and we will include them on the site. If you have one in their mining gear or at a mine that would be preferred if not we will post whatever you send. Feel free to send a few photos so we can use the one that displays best online.
