Rodney was a miner just like his father and his father before him. In fact, everyone in Rod’s family worked for the mines. Rodney was a smart and hardworking man who rose up through the ranks to before the mine’s general foreman. Being so far away from everything Elko and the surrounding mining towns were largely unaffected by the initial explosions. However, all the refugees fleeing the large cities caused widespread panic and distrust among the local community. Rod quickly stepped up and became a keeper of the peace as an essential go between for the locals, authorities, and refugees. He and his fellow miners formed the Elko Miners Coalition a group dedicated to keeping the community’s mining interests alive.
