The Doe Run Company, based in St. Louis, selected nine college students for summer internships. Four of the students selected are Missouri S&T students.

  • Kevin Gill is pursuing a master’s degree in geology and geophysics. As a geology intern specializing in exploration of new ore bodies, he is focusing on drilling and evaluating ore samples.
  • Isaac Taliaferro, a metallurgical engineering student, is involved with development and application of Doe Run’s proprietary technologies along the Viburnum Trend.
  • Dustin Camden, also a metallurgical intern, studies mechanical engineering. He is assisting Brushy Creek Mill with optimizing sampling and monitoring throughout the milling process.
  • Benjamin Maples, an undergraduate engineering student and an environmental remediation intern, is helping design a wetlands meander system for the Rivermines chat pile.

In addition to internships, Doe Run prepares students for jobs by partnering with local colleges, including Missouri S&T, to provide scholarships, field trips and equipment donations that help train the future mining workforce.
