This day honors the contributions of miners across the country providing the first step supply chain materials needed for our everyday living.
Trade jobs will continue to be important in the future, and that is why Hecla has created programs and job site visits to educate students in middle and high school about mining careers and to help in their pursuit of higher education.
Hecla’s recent “SAFETY: Take It Home” campaign contest was shared by both the National Mining Association (NMA) and CORESafety.
Hecla Mining Company is a precious metals company. The metals and minerals we mine at our operations are at the very front of the nation’s supply chain and are essential to many industries, including health care.
Investing in education has been a long-held priority for Hecla, and we have developed customized programs such as the Pathways to Mining Careers program in Alaska that support the educational needs of our communities and our workforce.
Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills are critical for advancing the mining industry and building the workforce of tomorrow.
