Danelle was very kind to share her photographs of mining accident victims buried in the Kalgoorlie cemetery, and amongst them was the following image.

Walter Price was only 26yrs old when he was poisoned by cyanide at the Ivanhoe Cyanide plant at the Golden Horseshoe Mine. He was a single man and the only son of Captain Price of Kalgoorlie.
