80% of Hecla’s workforce is local to our operations. At Hecla Quebec, 80% of the mine workers reside near the mine area in Abibiti-Quest and 79% are natives of the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region. More than half their suppliers are from the same region.
Our Greens Creek Mine in Alaska is a bit of an outlier because we cannot fill all the roles from the local community of Juneau. We target Alaska residents and post job openings in the lower 48 U.S. states.
