Hecla Mining Company
Established in 1891 in northern Idaho’s Silver Valley, Hecla Mining Company has distinguished itself as a respected precious metals producer with a rich mining history. Hecla is the largest primary silver producer in the U.S. and one of the lowest-cost producers, with a number of exploration/pre-development properties and operating mines in four world-class silver mining districts in the U.S. and Mexico. The company’s common stock has been traded on the New York Stock Exchange for over 40 years.
Hecla operates the Greens Creek mine in Alaska and Lucky Friday mine in Idaho, and owns district-sized land packages in the Silver Valley in northern Idaho; San Juan Silver in Creede, Colorado; and San Sebastian in Durango, Mexico, and also the Monte Cristo exploration project in Nevada. Hecla has developed a solid base with long-life, low-cost mines; organic growth opportunities; exploration upside; an excellent cash position with a strong balance sheet; and common stock dividends.
