The Doe Run Company is seeking an IT Support Specialist Intern for the summer of 2018


The Doe Run Company's Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO), located near Viburnum, MO (in the heart of the Mark 

Twain National Forest), is responsible for locating and extracting lead ore. The work takes place far below Earth's surface, some 1,000 feet

beneath the forested hills of southern Missouri. This area, rich in mineral deposits, is known as the Viburnum Trend.  Named for the nearby

town of Viburnum, mining and milling has taken place here for more than 40 years. Today, approximately 70 percent of the United States'

primary lead supply comes from SEMO's six mines in Missouri, limiting the country's dependence on foreign sources. While best known for

having high-purity lead ore, SEMO also extracts zinc and copper minerals from its underground mines.
