Hecla’s Responsible Actions

Training Students for Careers in Mining

Hecla partners with local organizations on education programs focused on building a pipeline of skilled workers in our communities.

Over the last 10 years, our Greens Creek Mine has invested $1.2 million in the University of Alaska Southeast Center for Mine Training’s Pathway to Mining Careers program. This world-class workforce development program helps prepare Alaskans for key jobs in the mining industry. To date, more than 10 percent of the diesel mechanics at Greens Creek have started their career paths at UAS.
