Is Coeur d' Alene Mines leaving Coeur d' Alene?
The answer unfortunately is a big maybe. It was announced to Coeur d' Alene Mine's employees last week that the company which has had it's Corporate Headquarters in Coeur d' Alene for over 80 years may move it's offices to Chicago. The large mining company sites the move as a plan to align themselves better for future growth and the create more visibility from both domestic and international shareholders.
The move is not official as of yet but Coeur d' Alene Mines does admit it is in talks with the State of Illinois and has been scoping out potential HQ locations in the Chicago area.
It's too early to tell right now what this might mean for Coeur d' Alene and weither or not any of the jobs in their Front St. office building will be moved/ elimated.
We will continue to watch this story as it progresses...
