Coalmine Information

SE Saskatchewan, Canada

I added the warning above, about entering these old mines, at the top of each old underground mine page, not for the fun of it, but as a serious message.
Nov 11, 1987 a 17 year old, Jeffrey “Jeff” Greg Chipley, entered the old Sunshine Underground Mine near Estevan, to rescue a 16 year old friend, and Jeff died from the bad air in this old mine, before he could be rescued. He received a posthumously awarded Carnegie hero award in 1988 for his actions. The 16 year old lived.
My warning above is no joke. It is a very serious message.
PLEASE STAY AWAY AND OUT OF THESE OLD MINES !
They are extremely dangerous.


Please note- some of these mines changed names many times, some even had different names at the same time, due to more than one owner, so if you are looking for a particular mine, please use the “Search Bar” top right of your screen. You can input one, 2, or even more words, you can put quotation marks “ around 2 or more words, to search for a phrase even, same as in Google or any search engine. It will search this entire site. It works fast, and it works great. I highly recommend using it!

If you have any further information of any of the mines in the index that you are willing to share, including photos, especially about those mines I have limited information on, please contact me. I will provide credit to whoever you want (whether that's you or a past relative). You will retain ownership of any photos and may request them to be removed at any time (unless they are photos freely available elsewhere).
