Before we even begin, we think of the end. When Hecla acquired the Troy Mine in 2015, we made a commitment to the community to reclaim the site so the mined lands could be returned to other productive land uses such as wildlife habitat. We have now completed reclamation of the Troy Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) and as a result, the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is in the process of releasing nearly $8M in financial assurances back to Hecla because we met or exceeded regulatory requirements.
