This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hecla Mining Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hecla Mining Company shares which in turn could have impacted Hecla Mining Company's share price.
