Sun Advocate community editor

Due to recent bounces at Westridge mine, federal officials have ordered the company to cease underground operations immediately.

According to Amy Louviere of the Mine Safety and Health Administration, mine owners UtahAmerican Energy have requested an expedited hearing to appeal mandated changes in their mine plan by the Department of Justice organization.

"Bounces took place on Jan. 24, 26 and 31," said Louviere via telephone interview on Wednesday. "No injuries were sustained during the first two bounces but the third bounce on Jan. 31 did cause a reportable accident."

Read all of Louviere's comments in the Feb. 5 edition of the Sun Advocate.
