Miners Memorial

$120,000 in funding has been secured by the Banana Shire Council for the Moura Miners’ Memorial, enabling the project to move forward after languishing in the planning stage for several years.

The memorial will be a permanent testimony to the victims of Moura's major mining disasters over the years, including the explosions at Kianga Mine in 1975, the Moura No. 4 mine in 1986 and Moura No. 2 in 1994.

The structure will consist of a domed roof over a central sculpture of three miners' helmets. Visitors will enter the memorial through a mine shaft-style entrance, on which the names of those lost will be listed.
