The Rochester mine is an open pit, heap leach silver-gold operation, located in Pershing County, Nevada, approximately 26 miles northeast of the city of Lovelock. The mine consists of the main Rochester deposit and the adjacent Nevada Packard deposit, southwest of the Rochester mine. Additionally, Coeur acquired the Lincoln Hill, Gold Ridge and Wilco projects that are adjacent to Rochester in November 2018.
Rochester is currently undergoing an expansion under Plan of Operations Amendment 11, which is expected to be largely completed by late 2022. The expansion project includes the construction of a new leach pad, a crushing facility equipped with two high-pressure grinding roll units, a Merrill-Crowe process plant, and related infrastructure to support the extension of Rochester’s mine life.
