A Miner’s Legacy is a not for profit foundation established to provide support, advice and assistance to families of mine workers involved in fatal mine accidents. A Miner’s Legacy does not seek to replace the responsibilities of employers, mine operators, the government or other interested parties. A Miner’s Legacy aims to ensure you and your loved ones are supported in the most compassionate manner.

A knock on the door is often a welcome surprise from family and friends. When that knock on the door is bearing news of a loved ones passing, it starts a journey that no family should have to endure.

Advice from families who have suffered similar tragedies in over a century of mining in Australia have shaped the services of A Miner’s Legacy. These services are obligation free and offered without prejudice. A Miner’s Legacy asks for nothing in return.

We share the dream of an industry free of accidents and injuries. We also understand we have to be prepared when our dreams don’t come true. At this time of greatest need, know you are not alone.

Your Helping Hand

The establishment of A Miner’s Legacy has been with the assistance of men and women who have lost a loved one in a fatal mining accident.  There is so much to do and think about when someone passes. And you may be in no state to deal with the practicalities.  We want to lend a helping hand to those in crisis, as soon as the tragedy occurs.

The hardest thing is that your world stands still whilst everyone else’s keeps turning.  You do not have to do this on your own.  A Miner’s Legacy will be there to provide you and your family, with comfort, support and advice when you need it the most. We will respond quickly to your needs and will support you in a way that is unique to your personal circumstances.

Remember, you are not alone.
