MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A mining company says it has temporarily withdrawn its armed guards from an exploratory drilling site in northwestern Wisconsin.
Gogebic Taconite spokesman Bob Seitz tells the Wisconsin State Journal the guards from Bulletproof Securities were pulled out Wednesday because the contractor failed to obtain proper licensing from the state. He says the company has two or three other options and will rely on them until proper state approval is received.

ASSOCIATED PRESS - Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. says it plans to idle its Empire Mine in Michigan and to cut production at its Northshore mining operations in Minnesota, affecting about 625 jobs.

In a statement Monday, Cliffs also says it plans to delay portions of its Bloom Lake mine expansion in Quebec. The Cleveland-based company cites declining demand from U.S. steelmakers for iron ore.
