Lucky Friday Mine To Start Rehiring In July

WALLACE, Idaho - Hecla Mining plans to hire workers back at its Lucky Friday mine as soon as July.

At its annual shareholder meeting Hecla's CEO Phil Baker says the company plans to bring around a dozen workers back to the Lucky Friday mine this July.

Those hire backs are from the pool of 111 workers that were laid off in January when the Mining Safety and Health Administration shut the mine down for unsafe conditions.

Hecla is also sticking to the time table of early 2013 of the Lucky Friday Mine which is located in Mullan Idaho to be fully operational. Baker also says that work is roughly 30% complete in the mines Silver Shaft.
