Hecla produces one-third of all the silver in the United States. While 88 percent of our production comes from the U.S. and Canada, all of our mine sites are located in stable regions.
Hecla’s recent “SAFETY: Take It Home” campaign contest was shared by both the National Mining Association (NMA) and CORESafety.
Responsible management of mining waste, or tailings, is a critical part of our daily operations and our long-term responsibility to our communities.
Our mines are located in some of the world’s most unique habitats, and we strive to be attentive neighbors that ensure wildlife is safe and protected for the present and future.
Our Lucky Friday Mine was named a “Pollution Prevention Champion” by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) for its environmental stewardship practices.
