Phil Baker

President & CEO

Hecla Mining Company

Hecla Mining Company, a 130-year-old company, is the United States largest silver producer, mining over 40% of that country’s silver. Phil has been its CEO for almost 20 years starting with the company when the price of silver was at its lowest price in the last 30 years. As a company with a long history, Hecla had significant legacy environmental liabilities which Phil made sure Hecla resolved with hundreds of millions of dollars of expenditures long before ESG became a thing. He sold Hecla’s mines in Venezuela where the company was the country’s largest gold producer using the proceeds to increase Hecla’s ownership to 100% of one the world’s best silver mines, Greens Creek. He has encouraged the development of a new mining method at the long-lived Lucky Friday mine which makes the next twenty years of the mine safer and more productive. He is a leading voice for the importance of silver as a metal necessary for renewable energy. He has seen the highs and lows of our industry.
