Memorial Album, Mining Master Record
The McIntyre Powder Project will host an information table at the Intake Clinic. It will include information about the McIntyre Powder Project, the McIntyre Powder aluminum dust program, and how to apply for your Mining Master Record.
A Memorial Album for deceased mine workers who were exposed to aluminum dust will be on display at the McIntyre Powder Project table.
The Memorial Album contains photos, obituaries & stories of these mine workers, contributed by their families in their memory. The memorial album is intended to showcase and honour the strength, pride, health struggles, and histories of the mine workers who risked their lives and health to earn a living to support their families.
You are welcome to contribute to this album, which stays with Janice Martell of the McIntyre Powder Project. The album will be on display in an area that is accessible to the public and media.
