A spokeswoman for Chevron Mining told the Taos News that 32 laid-off Questa mine employees have accepted positions with a new special projects unit.

Last month, Chevron Mining announced they were shutting down the mine in Questa after nearly 100 years in operation. Around 300 employees lost their jobs.

Officials say many workers are still not sure what they're going to do, but there is some help on the way.

A job fair is planned for next week in Questa.
