Hecla’s Responsible Actions

Hecla Hits High Marks for Water Recycling

Whenever possible, Hecla recycles and reuses water for milling and processing to help offset our freshwater withdrawal. In 2020, we recycled nearly 1½ times more water than we withdrew from freshwater sources. We have a high percentage recycling rate at two mines: In 2020, more than 90% of the water was recycled from the tailings pond at Casa Berardi, and 95% of the process water at the Lucky Friday.
