The restrictions lapsed on 1/3 of those vesting units (51,545 shares). Mr. Brown elected to have Hecla Mining Company withhold 27,579 shares to cover his tax liability.
(2)  Consists of 290,907 shares held directly, 73,937 performance-based shares; and 69,511 unvested restricted stock units.

(4)  See footnote 2.
(5)  Mr. Brown was awarded performance rights representing the contingent right to receive between $57,500 and $230,000 worth of Hecla Mining Company common stock based on Hecla Mining Company's Total Shareholder Return performance over the 3-year period (January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024) relative to our peers.
