Through educational programs, trainings, and service days, we support the growth of our communities so they continue to flourish even after our mines are closed.
With such a large presence within each location we operate, we believe it’s important to not only display utmost respect to local traditions, but to play an active part in their preservation and in their continued growth. That’s why at Coeur, we make community pride days, education programs and technology training courses a top priority.
Through a direct partnership with the Nevada Mining Association’s (NVMA) Education Committee, Coeur Rochester participates and supports mining education through a variety of outreach programs.

The workshops assist teachers to develop curriculums to include mining history and proper mining practices. All courses are developed to meet the State of Nevada school standards and encourage hands-on learning activities for all students and teachers in K-12th grade.
In 2016, Wharf hosted an Open House event for all community members as a “thank you” for their support over the past 30+ years. Based on the event’s success and the feedback from those in attendance, Wharf decided to make the open house an annual event. The event features gold-panning, picture opportunities with the equipment, free food, and an educational video.
