Working in the Mines (Clip 2 of 2)

The second clip associated with the Libby, Montana lesson plan explores the history of vermiculite mining in Libby and some of the uses that vermiculite had been put to in Libby and elsewhere. Earl Lovick is deposed during this video clip as well. Students should take notes on how mineworkers came to learn about the dangers of the asbestos-filled dust they had been breathing.
