On Aug. 27, 1963, a gas explosion trapped 25 men 2,000 feet underground at the Texas Gulf Sulphur Company’s new potash mining operation in Grand County. Twenty years of dedicated research and interviews later, Kymberly Mele of Price has written a book about the events that took place 55 years ago, “Disaster at Cane Creek: A Moab, Utah Story". Mele's own father Donald Blake Hanna survived the accident, making this book both a powerful personal record of history and a very important account of a serious catastrophe affecting many families in the area. Published in 2018.
