Mining company says 7 injured miners removed from Idaho underground mine after rock burst
By The Associated Press

MULLAN, Idaho (AP) ' A mine company says seven miners have been safely removed from deep in a northern Idaho underground mine after rock burst caused injuries to the miners.

Hecla Mining Co. spokeswoman Melanie Hennessey didn't immediately have other details on the Wednesday night incident at the Lucky Friday mine. One of the miners was taken to a hospital in Coeur d'Alene, while the other six were treated at the scene.

The Shoshone County Sheriff's Office received a call about 7:50 p.m. Wednesday that miners were either trapped or buried at the silver mine.

Hecla operates the Lucky Friday, one of the nation's deepest underground mines.

Two miners died at the Lucky Friday earlier this year in separate events.
