Idaho mine closed after 7 miners injured
Two miners died in separate accidents earlier this year. On Wednesday night, seven miners were injured during a rock burst while working 5,900 feet below the surface. All were safely rescued.
The incident prompted the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration to shut down the Lucky Friday while it investigates the cause.
The agency could not say how long the mine would be closed.
