(MULLAN) – Rescue crews made little progress in their effort find a trapped Idaho miner. Mining veteran Larry Marek remains trapped nearly a mile underground after a cave-in Friday. No contact has been made thus far. Officials hope to have a larger remote control digger up and running soon. Hecla Mining officials believe Marek may be in an open area behind the cave-in.
