News article from earlier today states armed man in the mine. Apparently he was discovered during the morning safety check. He is several hundred feet in and refuses to leave.

Has he made any statement as to what or why is behind this action, or an outcome he is pursuing ?
I hope he’s not looking to cause an exchange of force, that won’t go well for anyone involved
