At each of our sites, we endeavor to reduce freshwater and energy consumption, reduce our carbon footprint, maintain local water quality…
Different types of waste are generated during each stage of the mining process.
Hecla exceeded our 2019 performance targets for energy consumption and GHG emissions at our Casa Berardi Mine in Québec.
Hecla has adopted a robust and on-going continuous improvement approach to identify and manage climate change related risks and continue our efforts to reduce our footprint on the climate.
The State of Montana recently recognized the successful reclamation progress at the Troy Mine.
We take very seriously how our decisions and processes related to water management impact our overall operations and our communities.
Before we even begin, we think of the end. When Hecla acquired the Troy Mine in 2015, we made a commitment to the community to reclaim the site so the mined lands could be returned to other productive land uses such as wildlife habitat.
Hecla has invested in innovative technology to help protect our people and reduce our environmental impact.
Hecla uses renewable energy sources whenever possible to further reduce our environmental impact.
Responsible management of mining waste, or tailings, is a critical part of our daily operations and our long-term responsibility to our communities.
