Coeur Mining leaves Idaho

Boise - The Idaho StatesmanOctober 11, 2013 

Coeur Mining Inc., one of Idaho's largest publicly traded companies, has relocated to Chicago.

The silver and gold mining company was headquartered in Coeur d'Alene, where it was incorporated in 1928. The company changed its name from Coeur d'Alene Mines Corp. to Coeur Mining when it announced plans to relocate in March. CEO Mitchell Krebs said at the time that the move was part of the company's effort to expand its global access and reach.

The move to Chicago was completed Oct. 1.

A few employees will continue working in Couer d'Alene until January, when the last vestiges of company headquarters move to Chicago. About 20 of the 65 employees in Coeur d'Alene planned to relocate to Chicago, according to the Spokesman-Review.
