English term or phrase:extended times and short time working
Although the year ended weakly as almost every Mica plant in the world went on to extended Mica times and short time working, conversely silver had strong months.
What is meant by extended Mica times and short time working in this case?
Does this text have anything to do with the mining of mica and silver? If so, I would assume it means something like . . . almost every mica plant in the world had to work longer hours, and conversely, working shorter times, silver had strong months...
