Company-wide, Hecla’s entire operations directly affect less than 3,900 acres, which is about two-thirds of the area of the Spokane International Airport…
Our ability to operate responsibility starts with one the most fundamental aspect of our mines – their location.
Our geographic and environmental footprint may be small, but we back our operations with a big commitment to ensuring positive economic and social benefits for our local communities.
Hecla’s commitment to human rights is embodied in our human rights statement.
We know that instilling safety awareness behavior is fundamental to making our workplace as safe as possible, which is why Hecla invests in training, technology, and workforce development programs that focus on safety first.
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 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 released its 2019 Sustainability Report which outlines our ongoing Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) efforts with our on-the-ground sustainability programs.
Back to Our Responsibility.
