Greening Mines

Missouri (8/2/16) -- The Doe Run Company has been extracting resources from Missouri mines, which represent some of the world’s largest lead deposits. Eventually the mines will close and Doe Run will remediate the sites as required. Building off of a research project funded by Doe Run Co. research by Ph.D. student Mariam Al-Lami and Joel Burken, Curators’ Distinguished Professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering have shown biosolids to be an excellent resource for the mine land remediation.
