Coalbrook

21 January 1960

The date 21 January 1960 remains etched in the minds of hundreds of families, members of the mining community and South Africans as one of the definitive historical moments in the country’s history.

The Clydesdale Coalbrook North Colliery, located near what is today Sasolburg, was at the time lauded as a highly productive and significant coal mine for its longevity in operation. Indeed, this tragedy is recognised as the worst mining disaster in the history of South Africa and ranks among the top 10 worst mining disasters ever globally.
