Hecla Announces Drill Intersections at San Sebastian Property, Mexico

Hecla Mining Company announced results from its shallow in-fill and exploration drilling program on the North and Middle Veins at its San Sebastian property in Durango, Mexico. Recent drilling success has elevated San Sebastian to Hecla's higher priority pre-development project. Four veins now discovered with nearly 7 kilometers (4.4 miles) of mineralized strike length; and the recently discovered Middle and North Veins are open. Drilling in the last two quarters limited to 100 meters (328 feet) depth; mineralization continues at depth. Silver equivalent indicated resource of 25.9 million ounces and inferred resource of 29.5 million ounces expected to increase in the coming months. Near-surface mineralization appears amenable to oxide leaching; additional testing underway. For the last four quarters the focus of the drilling program has been on near-surface targets on the Middle and North Veins. The two veins are parallel and located 140 meters (460 feet) apart. 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 (980 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 84.1 oz/ton silver and 0.40 oz/ton gold over 9.5 feet, 79.1 oz/ton silver and 0.43 oz/ton gold over 7.4 feet, 31.9 oz/ton silver and 0.32 oz/ton gold over 14.5 feet. See more complete drill assay highlights in Table A at the end of this release. North Vein was the focus of a 40-hole shallow drilling program in the third quarter to test its continuity. This drilling resulted in several wide and high-grade intercepts including 0.11 oz/ton gold and 13.1 oz/ton silver over 15.0 feet, 0.16 oz/ton gold and 8.4 oz/ton silver over 14.6 feet, 0.17 oz/ton gold and 4.6 oz/ton silver over 18.6 feet. This vein has been traced for over 600 meters (1,970 feet) along strike and to a depth of over 100 meters (330 feet) and remains open along strike in both directions and at depth. The near-surface portion of the North Vein contains mineralization that may be suitable to open pit mining.
