Lucky Friday will dig deeper

Project will make mine deepest in Silver Valley

MULLAN - Hecla Mining Company has been working diligently on their No. 4 Shaft Project at the Lucky Friday mine for one year, and just recently announced that the decision has been made to bottom out the new shaft at 8800 feet. This will make the Lucky Friday mine the deepest mine in the Silver Valley, pushing it deeper than the previous record holder the Star mine in Burke.
