Hecla’s Responsible Actions

Ensuring Responsibility by Reducing Risk

Our ability to operate responsibility starts with one the most fundamental aspect of our mines – their location. All our mine sites are located in highly-rated regions by the Fraser Institute survey of mining companies’ investment attractiveness, meaning that we operate in jurisdictions that require transparency, compliance with stringent environmental and safety laws, involve high levels of community engagement, and adhere to human rights’ protections. We also operate in areas with low corruption. Eighty-eight percent of our production comes from Canada and the U.S., which are rated #12 and #23 respectively in the Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index.
