U.S. Sen. Steve Daines visited the Montanore offices in Libby Friday to discuss the progress of the mine project with members of local government and the community.
Along with Daines, State Sen. Mike Cuffe, District 1, and State Rep. Steve Gunderson, District 1, were also in attendance, alongside county government and school officials, as well as members of the community associated with various organizations and boards.
Doug Stiles, manager of Montana Operations for Hecla Mining, gave a short update on progress with the Montanore and Rock Creek mine projects.
Hecla is working with the U.S. Forest Service to update their plan of operations for the Rock Creek mine, he said. “We finally feel like we’re about as close as we’ve ever been on Rock Creek.”
