Broken Hill's Stan Goodman's "The Fatal Lodes" extra copies available

Mining Industry
After the first print run of 200 copies of the "The Fatal Lodes" by Broken Hill author Stan Goodman sold out within on hour or so of publication in October, a re-print of 400 is available tomorrow from the Broken Hill City Council Administration Building between 10am and 2pm.  Of the 400 books, 270 copies are pre-ordered and are on hold at the Council offices.  Mr Goodman, a former miner, will again be present to sign the books.

My article on the first release can be read here.  The book costs $35.00 and is the result of over 10 years of research by Mr Goodman on the stories behind deaths in the local mining industry.

Broken Hill City Council Administration Building 240 Blende Street, Broken Hill NSW 2880.

For enquires please contact Council's Customer Relations Department on 08 8080 3300.

It sounds a most interesting and valuable reference book.

May the miners rest in peace.
