CHICAGO (AP) — Gold and silver producer Coeur d'Alene Mines Corp. is moving its headquarters from Idaho to downtown Chicago.
Gov. Pat Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel are to announce the move Wednesday.
Quinn recruited the company to come to Illinois, and the state is offering it a package of income tax credits and other incentives.
An announcement by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity did not say how much those incentives were worth.
The company plans to complete the move in the third quarter and hire at least 60 employees at its new headquarters by the end of 2014.
It will change its name to Coeur Mining in mid-May.
The company operates silver and gold mines in Nevada, Alaska, Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina and Australia.
