Shaft 4 was supposed to be completed in 2014, and increase production by at least 50%. 2 miners were injured during construction. The "rock blast" that killed miners may have been there or somewhere else in mine. Due to safety problems whole mine was shut down in 2012 and due to reopen this month. Hasn't happened yet. 20 miners were rehired in Dec. 2012, another 200 told they were going to be rehired. Some sort of announcement may happen in Feb. with earnings release. Hl has been disturbingly quiet on matter. Lots of "presents" recently all very optimistic, but only earnings will affect stock. Gotta do better than 1 penny a share.
