|Click here to visit the Black Gold project. It is the main official centre-point for the creative works designed to highlight and mark the 50th anniversary of the Auchengeich mining disaster.
So far we have recruited an author to compile the authorized book and a band to record music to commemorate this memorable landmark. More details are below.
Plans are currently underway for a possible tv documentary and moves are being placed to recruit a theatrical event. Officially stamped and on our books are the author of the book and the band who will compose the music for the memoriam.
