Fallen miners remembered, honored during 20th anniversary Wilberg memorial


United States Senator Jim Matheson offers an address during the 20th anniversary memorial of the Wilberg mine disaster at Emery High School. A crowd of approximately 500 gathered to honor the miners lost in the Dec. 19, 1984 tragedy. After a fire erupted approximately 5,000 feet from the main entrance of the Wilberg facility, 27 lives were taken, rocking the entire Carbon-Emery County mining community.
