We return to Mt Mulligan on the 90th Anniversary of the 1921 mining disaster. This video includes some background historical information before the hunt. The actual death toll from the coal dust explosion is generally agreed to be 75, but may have been 76. The town came into being in the late 1800s and was abandoned with the closure of the mine in 1956. This is the first outing for our new ‘ruggedized’ Panasonic Lumix camera. It is water and dustproof and drop-proof to 1.5m. It will need to be, as we plan on getting it dusty and dropping it on a number of occasions. Video has only been uploaded in medium definition due to the file size.
