Hecla holds hand with Aurizon
This catches me off gaurd like that hook you never see coming. But Hecla announces today that it will be aqcuiring Aurizon Mines for CAD$796 million. Sinch once wrote, maybe it was last year, that Hecla had not aqcuired any juniors, unlike Yamana, and a s a result had not progressed in teh recent years as it shoudl have to stay competitive with the likes of AUY. Well, its better late than never.
Now I have not done much research into Aurizon, so I am not sure as of this writing how beneficial this would be. But, I think HL can use all the help they can get given last year.
