GUNNISON COUNTY, COLORADO MINING DEATHS A-L

Colorado became concerned very early about the large number of deaths caused by mining accidents. Attempting to understand and solve the problem, the Legislature passed a law that mining companies had to report all mining accidents that resulted in fatalities. This was done long before a state law was passed requiring death certificates on all Colorado citizens.
