Miners Day is Dec. 6.
A day dedicated to those hard-working individuals that dig deep into the earth to provide those metals that make our everyday lives a little easier.
Although this is not a national holiday, let us remember and celebrate those men and women called miners by thinking of all those items that are dependent on mining. That car or pickup that you drive, the roads you drive on, your fancy iPhone, computer, television, all your electronic devices not to mention the pots and pans that we cook our food in. The defense of our country is dependent on metals from bullets to ships and planes, missiles, etc.
It is to those miners, past and present that the mining stories we publish in the San Manuel Miner and Pinal Nugget are dedicated.
