Our Lucky Friday Mine was named a “Pollution Prevention Champion” by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) for its environmental stewardship practices. Lucky Friday was among only four Idaho businesses chosen for this year’s prestigious award.
According to Ben Jarvis, IDEQ’s pollution prevention coordinator, “The upgrades, process modifications and recycling projects that have been implemented at Hecla’s Lucky Friday mine have resulted in significant reductions of waste, water, and energy used by the mine for the production of silver, zinc, and lead. With growing demand for these metals, eliminating waste and pollution from production is more important than ever.”
