true power house mid-tier mining company??? You better check the Hecla website buddy. Hecla is one of the big boys! Have been for awhile now - how can the largest North American silver miner be called a 'mid-tier' mining company? Hecla IS one of the BIG BOYS on the block!
Mid- tier???? Better wake up energy flow - Hecla is a large tier miner already and with this acquisition they'll be even larger. You must be a newbie to Hecla - Hecla is the largest silver producer in North America - where do you get mid- tier miner from??? Come on Energyflow pull your head out and take a nice dep breath!!!!
First Majestic produces MORE SILVER than Hecla, and they are entirely North American. 12-13M oz this year and 16M in 2014. You act like Hecla is so great. Overlay the chart of AG over HL in the last 1,2,3,5,10 years LOL.
The only thing mid tier about Hecla is the low share price: it probably should be called lower tier based on the most abysmal share price action for the past twenty years. This stock was $50 a share when the dollar was worth less than half its value today, but instead of trading at 100-120 per share it trades at 4. I think HL sold out to JPM a few years ago.
