Hecla Mining Company released an update on its latest exploration results. Drilling at both Greens Creek and Casa Berardi is on track to replace reserves by year end. Midas exploration at the Green Racer Sinter continues to expand high-grade gold and silver mineralization for over 2,000 feet of strike and 1,250 feet of dip extent. An initial resource is expected to be announced in early 2022. Greens Creek surface exploration drilling at the LilSore target intersected copper and zinc-rich zones of mineralization that are indicative of a fertile feeder stockwork zone. This mineralization is stratigraphically below the targeted mine contact indicating potential for an additional mineralized mine horizon at depth or laterally. Hollisters decline has advanced and drilling of the Hatter Graben can begin in the fourth quarter. At Midas, two core rigs focused on offsetting and expanding high-grade mineralization along strike and up and down dip at the Green Racer Sinter. A third core rig arrived at Midas in July, and all three core rigs are continuing to test the Green Racer Sinter structure and additional East Graben Corridor targets including the South Green Racer and Green Racer Sinter structural intersection, and Little Opal target areas. Drilling at Midas continues to intersect high-grade gold and silver mineralization along the Sinter structure with recent drillhole intersections including 1.99 oz/ton gold and 8.2 oz/ton silver over 1.7 feet estimated true thickness and 0.30 oz/ton gold and 136.2 oz/ton silver over 0.9 feet estimated true thickness. Mineralization is hosted in quartz and carbonate veining within the Sinter structure which is locally fractured due to post-mineral fault movement. While still early in exploration program, high-grade mineralization has been intersected over 2,000 feet of strike length, 1,250 feet of dip and continues to be open for expansion both along strike and dip.
