Who is John Kolic?


John began working as a miner for the NJ Zinc Co. in 1972, until 1986 when the mine closed. He resumed work in 1989 for the Sterling Hill Mining Museum until October 2013 when he became too ill to continue. He passed away in 2014.

John kept a meticulous diary describing every detail of his work day. These diaries provide a firsthand view into his life as a miner.

THE DIARIES WILL BE RELEASED SEMI-ANNUALLY AND WILL BE FEATURED IN THE STERLING HILL MINING MUSEUM NEWSLETTER.
