Mark Brown, general manager at the Pend Oreille Mine in Metaline Falls, Wash., is preparing for the mine closure. “It’s a temporary shutdown. We have no intention of a long-term shutdown, but we want to be fair to our workers. We don’t want to create a misplaced sense of hope that the mine will reopen in two months or in a year, because we don’t know when it will reopen.”
