Drove past D&D today and it looks like the frame is down and the shanty was either on fire or being torn down? Anyone have any info as to whats up?

Do you mean that the slope is backfilled or the entire mine?

Filling an entire mine unless it is very small seems like a lot of effort and dollars.

not the entire mine. you construct a battery in the slope ( thick wall) 20feet down and fill from there up.
