The Coal Glen mine disaster was a coal mine explosion that occurred on May 27, 1925, in Coal Glen, Oakland Township, Chatham County, North Carolina, United States. It is located just north of the city of Sanford, North Carolina. Fifty-three miners died in the explosion. Attempts at re-opening the mine were made sporadically until the 1950s, but were never financially viable. The mine was permanently closed in 1951.
