Heclas Senior Vice President – Exploration Receives A.O. Dufresne Exploration Achievement Award
Congratulations to Dean on receiving this prestigious award, said Phillips S. Baker, Jr., President and CEO. We believe the largest risk to mining companies today is the ability to replace reserves. Dean and his exploration team have been instrumental in Hecla maintaining its strong and growing reserve and resource profile over the past 10 years; as we added 299 million silver ounces to reserves despite price volatility and the recent trend in the industry of declining reserves.
