Procon laid off the 12 workers Wednesday.
"This decision was made because the development work in our Panda underground mine is finished," said Deana Twissell, spokesperson for BHP. "Production of ore from Panda continues."
All 12 workers are from the south.
"There are no Northern employees laid off," said Twissell.
She added that the cutback had nothing to do with the global economic crisis.
