Hecla Mining Company Announces Strong Drill Intersections at its San Sebastian Property in Durango, Mexico

Hecla Mining Company announced 2014 exploration drilling program with strong drill intersections has resulted in significantly increased resources at its San Sebastian property in Durango, Mexico. A 2015 exploration program has been designed to further advance the project and expand the resource. Total silver equivalent indicated resources increased 46% to 37.7 million ounces and inferred resources increased 18% to 34.9 million ounces, over 12/31/13 levels.1 Surface material to 100 meters depth (328 feet) contains silver equivalent indicated resources of 16.2 million ounces, at an average grade of 0.11 oz/ton gold and 11.3 oz/ton silver. Near-surface mineralization appears amenable to cyanide leaching; additional testing underway. The nearly six kilometers (3.7 miles) of mineralized strike length is still open along strike and at depth. The East Francine Vein has an inaugural silver equivalent indicated resource of 4.5 million ounces at an average grade of 0.22 oz/ton gold and 64.1 oz/ton silver and inferred resource of 2.6 million ounces at an average grade of 0.20 oz/ton gold and 18.5 oz/ton silver. All of this resource is within 100 meters of surface. The North Vein has an inaugural silver equivalent indicated resource of 4.9 million ounces at an average grade of 0.10 oz/ton gold and 4.5 oz/ton silver and inferred resource of 1.2 million ounces at an average grade of 0.09 oz/ton gold and 4.2 oz/ton silver. All of this resource is within 150 meters of surface. The Middle Vein has a new silver equivalent indicated resource of 13.9 million ounces at an average grade of 0.06 oz/ton gold and 13.1 oz/ton silver and inferred resource of 0.5 million ounces at an average grade of 0.01 oz/ton gold and 6.2 oz/ton silver, an increase of 13% in indicated material and a nearly 5-fold increase in inferred material over 12/31/13 levels. Most of this resource is within 250 meters of surface. The newly discovered East Francine Vein is the faulted extension of the past-producing, high-grade Francine Vein. The East Francine Vein has been intersected by 38 holes and varies in thickness from 0.5 to 7.5 meters (1.5 to 24.5 feet) and is currently traced for 350 meters (1,200 feet) along strike and to 110 meters (360 feet) of depth. The vein mainly consists of oxide mineralization, and drilling has intersected some of the highest-grade intervals in the last decade at Hecla. Hecla announced some spectacular intersections in the drilling during the third quarter. The strong intersections continue in the latest drilling, including 1.54 oz/ton gold and 288.6 oz/ton silver over 10.5 feet, 0.30 oz/ton gold and 17.3 oz/ton silver over 13.4 feet, and 0.56 oz/ton gold and 9.8 oz/ton silver over 5.2 feet. In 2015, the East Francine Vein will be one of the primary exploration targets as the vein is open along strike and at depth. The North Vein has been intersected by 184 holes, defining a mineralized trend that extends over 1,025 meters (3,360 feet) along strike and 183 meters (600 feet) to depth and remains open along strike in both directions and at depth. North Vein mineralization is typically gold dominant with lesser silver. Recent drilling resulted in several wide and high-grade intercepts including 0.39 oz/ton gold and 4.9 oz/ton silver over 7.8 feet, and 0.40 oz/ton gold and 4.2 oz/ton silver over 7.8 feet. The near-surface portion of the North Vein contains mineralization that may be suitable to open pit mining. The Middle Vein has been intersected by 197 holes and 38 surface trenches and can be traced for nearly two kilometers (6,560 feet) along strike and to a depth of over 300 meters (984 feet). The upper portion of the Middle Vein contains near-surface, high-grade mineralization that may be suitable to open pit mining. Drill results in the second and third quarters were very impressive and included assay intervals such as 0.40 oz/ton gold and 84.1 oz/ton silver over 9.5 feet, 0.43 oz/ton gold and 79.1 oz/ton silver over 7.4 feet, and 0.32 oz/ton gold and 31.9 oz/ton silver over 14.5 feet.
