Re-live History! Attend the Argonaut Mine Disaster
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the 1922 Argonaut Mine Disaster, one of the worst gold mine disasters in the U.S. The Kennedy Mine played a major role in mounting a rescue attempt by digging a new tunnel from the Kennedy underground levels to the neighboring Argonaut Mine in hopes of finding the trapped miners alive.
The Kennedy is working with numerous organizations to highlight the heroic efforts by all involved to rescue the 47 miners trapped as the world waited for news. See some of the planned events, download our free commemorative poster to share.
38 of the 47 trapped miners were immigrants – 19 from Italy, 13 from the Balkan region, 2 from Spain, and 1 each from Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, and Portugal. If you are a descendent of one of the victims or rescuers and have not received information about this event, please email email@example.com for more information.

On the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.
