Westray Coal Mine Disaster
Local historian James Cameron has estimated that 576 deaths occurred between 1866 and 1972 in mining in Pictou County and that 625-650 died "from colliery misadventures in Pictou County" since coal mining began in the early 1800s. In the Foord pit there is special danger "on account of the liability of cutting heavy feeders of gas"... - quoted from a report by Henry S. Poole, Inspector of Mines, in the Nova Scotia Department of Mines Annual Report,1873.
