Strong safety performance with an all-injury frequency rate of 1.32 for the first nine months, 37% below the U.S. average and an improvement of 19% over the nine-month period in 2021
“Hecla reported another quarter of solid operational performance as Greens Creek achieved its best ever throughput and Lucky Friday's production exceeded 1 million ounces for the second consecutive quarter,” said Phillips S. Baker Jr., President & CEO. “Free cash flow generation was lower for the quarter due to deferral of the sale of about a million ounces of silver and other metals, increased capital investment in our mines, and Alexco acquisition costs. All operations are free cash flow positive year to date and reflect the strong margins at our silver operations despite lower prices and an inflationary environment.”

Baker continued, “Hecla is the United States’ largest silver miner, producing about 40% of all the silver mined. With Keno Hill's pre-production development on plan, we should become Canada's largest silver miner in the next few years.”


"Total cost of sales" as used in this release is comprised of cost of sales and other direct production costs and depreciation, depletion and amortization.
