A miner who died in a tunnel collapse at the Lucky Friday Mine in northern Idaho is partly responsible for his own death due to his own "negligent and careless misconduct," Hecla Mining Co. said.
Seven miners were pulled from more than a mile below the surface after an accident at a northern Idaho silver mine where two workers died in separate mishaps this year.
Rescuers worked Sunday to reach a miner caught in an Idaho cave-in more than a mile underground and anxiously awaited the arrival of a remote-control digger that will allow them to tunnel more quickly and safely through unstable earth.
