The Kakanj mine disaster was a mining accident on 7 June 1965 at a coal mine in Kakanj, Bosnia and Herzegovina.


A methane gas explosion at the Orasi mine shaft of the Kakanj mine casused a cave-in, which killed 128 miners. There were no survivors.[1] The Kakanj disaster remained the worst one in the country's history until the Dobrnja-Jug mine disaster in 1990.
