Where zombie miners lurk
from Calgary Herald
Blown up in explosions, smothered in collapsing shafts, crushed by heavy carts, the ghosts of coal miners are said to linger at the Atlas Coal Mine Historic Site just outside the tiny town of East Coulee, AB. There, a tall wooden structure looms against the starkly beautiful backdrop of the Badlands. It is the last wooden coal tipple in Canada, protected, with the outbuildings and tunnels that surround it, as a national historic site and a reminder of the dangerous days of Canadian coal mining.
