    Hecla Is The Leader Of The Pack

    With the LF open for business, HL's definitely the leader in its peer group. All American properties both producing and soon to be producing(San Juan in Creede-40 million ounces proved + 100 million potential). No debt and soon to receive the "green" light from MSHA with a new, state of the art "Silver" shaft and a brand new mill AND double the existing resources at depth. Compared to others like CDE, the future's Soooooo bright for Hecla, you boys are gonna need a new pair of SHADES !!!!! Why would anyone invest a dime in companies like CDE with 54% of its production in Bolivia. Hello !!!!!!! Hecla's my big bet for 2013.

    • I am With you, HL is the leader if you want to own silver stocks ------ as long as they don't have another screwup with MSHA like they did with cleaning down of Silver Shaft last year.

      GreensCreek is producing and very little news releases on the San Juan in Colorado so not sure of plans on that mine (seems like they are not too excited here yet ?).

      If silver goes up, hope that you have some HL stock


      Sentiment: Buy

    • Ago08: CDE is much superior company and investment than HL here is why:
      CDE has all their mines operating. HL doesn't.
      Other factors:
      CDE just beat 2012 guidance on gold production and gold production will keep increasing next year
      CDE invested into 5 junior exploration companies which is an excellent low risk strategy to increase reserves in the future.
      CDE is cheaper on Price to FCF than HL (even if you account for LF reopen and shaft 4 completion)
      CDE has better management and is a better run company

      Anyone in their right mind will choose CDE over HL.

      And the Bolivian mine is only 5.7M Ag production out of 18M. Plus CDE gets 220k oz of Au, all from US.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • My sentiments to a T, couldn't have said better myself. One third of my portfolio is Hecla. In two years, we could see HL in the high 40's. AUNFF is another silver play that I have a few chunks of, which was the result of some advice that I received on the HL board. Silver is going to go ape crazy, lookout.
