This report describes a project to evaluate alternative energy recovery systems. A turbine-generator system was selected, designed, installed, and operated at the Hecla Lucky Friday Mine. Performance data was collected indicating that actual system efficiency was close to predicted values. The system clearly demonstrated the usefulness of thermal energy recovery techniques and has operated successfully over a period of 1 year.
