Six new mining deaths were added to the Western Australian Virtual Miner Memorial today. These names were found in the Dept of Mines Annual Report for 1940. They will not have their names engraved on the Miners Memorial at the WA Museum in Hannan Street as they are outside of the designated area for this, but at least they will not be forgotten.

An overview of the last five years.

We have four Coal Miners and two prospectors.
