All Afire!

Ore Miners of Newfoundland and Labrador

  Author:   John Kitchen    
  Publisher:  John Kitchen

The book’s title – ‘All Afire!’ was the cry shouted when miners were ready to light their fuses for a blast, warning other workers to seek shelter. This is a story about the life of a miner, focusing on Buchans, with comparisons to other Newfoundland and Labrador mining communities. It explains how a miner goes about the various mining jobs, from mucking ore, to drilling, to being a shift-boss, and the many other jobs in between. It also discusses the hazards and dangers associated with mining – the falls of ground, the dust, the gas, moving machinery, dynamite, etc.
