Hecla produces one-third of all the silver in the United States. While 88 percent of our production comes from the U.S. and Canada, all of our mine sites are located in stable regions.
Hecla’s recent “SAFETY: Take It Home” campaign contest was shared by both the National Mining Association (NMA) and CORESafety.
Responsible management of mining waste, or tailings, is a critical part of our daily operations and our long-term responsibility to our communities.
Hecla is often among the largest private-sector employers in the rural areas where our mines are located.
Hecla’s innovation solutions range from simple to complex, and we optimize each site based on its customized operational priorities.
Hecla Mining Company is a precious metals company. The metals and minerals we mine at our operations are at the very front of the nation’s supply chain and are essential to many industries, including health care.
Investing in education has been a long-held priority for Hecla, and we have developed customized programs such as the Pathways to Mining Careers program in Alaska that support the educational needs of our communities and our workforce.
Hecla’s goal is to bring every worker and every contractor home safe, every shift, every day.
Hecla released its 2019 Sustainability Report which outlines our ongoing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) efforts with our on-the-ground sustainability programs.
Hecla’s Corporate Director of Safety and Health, Michael Wegleitner, brings the safety message home and to nearby schools.
