Executive Team

In 2020, we underwent a change in management and are now under the leadership of former executives from Barrick Gold Corp. With a strong execution track record behind us, we are aligned with a common goal: building a modern, USA focused silver company, with the historical Bunker Hill Mine as the cornerstone asset. Our CEO, along with our operations team, is based in Idaho at the mine site with strong ties to both the local community and the historical Bunker Hill mine.
