A minor 3.9 magnitude earthquake early Saturday shook southwestern Utah, 150 miles (240 kilometers) from the collapsed coal mine where six men are missing. The quake hit in a remote area and was unlikely to have caused any damage, said Relu Burlacu, a seismologist with the University of Utah. Burlacu said there are several faults in the area, and it was not immediately clear which one was involved. The epicenter near Minersville was about 150 miles (240 kilometeers) southwest of Huntington, where the Crandall Canyon Mine collapsed on Aug. 6, trapping six miners.
