hecla mining co (HL) Key Developments

Hecla Mining Co. Reports Preliminary Production Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Production Guidance for the Year 2015

Hecla Mining Co. reported preliminary production results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015. Greens Creek's second quarter production of 1,856,125 million ounces of silver exceeded the second quarter of 2014 by 10%, while gold production of 13,753 ounces was 8% lower. The higher silver production was a result of higher recoveries and grade, partially offset by slightly lower tonnage. Silver recoveries increased 8%, or 5.6% points, to 75.4% over the prior year period due to changes in the fourth quarter modifying the flotation circuit to more efficiently scalp additional lead concentrate directly to final concentrate, and by introducing CO for pH control in the lead flotation circuit in April 2015. The reduction in gold production was the result of lower tonnage and grade partially offset by recoveries that increased due to the previously described plant improvements. The mill operated at an average of 2,194 tons per day (tpd) in the second quarter. Lucky Friday's second quarter silver production of 613,474 ounces was 25% lower than the second quarter of 2014 due to lower tonnage and grade. A failure of the underground booster fan reduced the ventilation capacity of the mine, leading to the temporary closure of a higher-grade production stope. Lucky Friday has returned to normal production rates by extending the work schedule to seven days per week from six, but is mining lower grade material until the fan is replaced, expected in the fourth quarter. In addition, there are 10 days of scheduled downtime in the third quarter for hoist mechanical maintenance. The mill operated at an average of 792 tpd in the second quarter. Casa Berardi's second quarter gold production of 30,939 ounces was 8% higher than the second quarter of 2014 because of higher grades, partially offset by lower tonnage and recovery. The mine experienced higher grades as a result of mine sequencing. While recoveries relative to a year ago decreased to 86% from 90% due to the presence of arsenopyrite in some of the 118 Zone ore, adjustments made to the plant in 2015 are expected to contribute to recoveries increasing to 87% during the second half of the year. The mill operated at an average of 2,407 tpd in the second quarter. For the year 2015, the company expects Greens Creek to produce 7.7 to 8.0 million ounces of silver, an increase over the previous expectation of 7.3 million ounces. The company expects Lucky Friday mine to produce 2.8 to 3.0 million ounces of silver in 2015, a reduction over the previous estimate of 3.2 million ounces. The company expects Casa Berardi mine to meet its 130,000 gold ounce target for the year.
