About Us

Hercules Silver Corp. is focused on the exploration and development of a large-scale disseminated silver-lead-zinc system at Hercules with over 28,000 meters of historical drilling and a newly discovered copper porphyry target which adds significant scale and discovery potential to the system

our story

Hercules Silver Corp is utilizing modern exploration techniques and geological concepts to explore the forgotten silver district of western Idaho.

Historical operators were focused on developing a shallow high-grade open pit resource with short vertical drill holes, with no attention paid to structural controls on mineralization. Bald Eagles technical team evaluated the historical data and identified the potential for a large disseminated silver deposit, in addition to the mineralization already defined at surface. The Company has aggressive plans to drill over 5.5 kilometers of strike as well as test a new copper porphyry target which was discovered by modern systematic exploration on the property.

Environmental, Social, Governance

Sustainability has been universally adopted in the natural resource industry and it is integral in how Hercules Silver approaches and implements its development strategy

The Company seeks to build a positive legacy by delivering value to the community both during and after its operating life in Idaho and by building close ties with the community, government and all its stakeholders.

During the exploration phase of the project, Hercules Metals aims to minimize the overall disturbance caused by its exploration activities. The Company’s drilling campaigns will be backed by ongoing reclamation, aimed at supporting the natural wildlife habitat.

The Company aims to strengthen and maintain the natural environment where it operates by implementing environmentally friendly protocols and procedures into its field work programs, consistent with internationally recognized standards.

We engage in meaningful dialogue with the communities we work in, acting in good faith to promote transparency. We aim to be good neighbors and always leave a long lasting and positive legacy in the places we operate.

Our community isn’t restricted to our immediate surroundings, but to anywhere affected by our operations. We respect and consider all potential stakeholders involved, in order to promote economic and social relationships.

We consider engagement and collaboration with government essential for the sustainability of our business.

We encourage our employees to develop the same positive working relationships with contractors, suppliers and local stakeholders.
