Doe Run Partners with Local Universities for Global Student Exchange Project

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 27, 2005 -- The Doe Run Company recently embarked on an innovative cross-cultural educational program known as the Global Student Exchange Project with the University of Missouri, Rolla (UMR). Doe Run's unique position as a global leader in metallurgy gave UMR exchange students an opportunity to gain practical experience on an international level.

 “  We're excited to apply our knowledge in these areas and determine if we can help Doe Run further improve its operations.  
From March 27 through April 4, six UMR mining and civil engineering students traveled abroad to tour Doe Run Peru facilities and conduct field assessments of the company's La Oroya smelter and Cobriza mines. Doe Run provided housing accommodations for the students at the company's facilities in Peru, round-trip airfare, meals and in-country travel expenses. Later this year, Doe Run will welcome a group of Peruvian exchange students to its Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO) in Viburnum, Mo. Not only will the trip help fulfill educational requirements, but it will also give the students an international advantage as they pursue mining education

 at Peruvian universities.

In addition to observing Doe Run Peru's mining and smelting operations, the multinational team will also study Doe Run's latest environmental innovations and community involvement in Peru. Upon completion of the project, expected late 2005, UMR students with their Peruvian counterparts will present Doe Run with a detailed report, including considerations for improving Doe Run Peru's efficiency and operations.

"This is a wonderful opportunity that allows our students to put their mining, metallurgical and environmental knowledge to work," said Jerry Tien, associate professor of mining and engineering studies at UMR. "Our students were interested to learn

 about Doe Run’s operations and were amazed to see their commitment to safety and community development. We're excited to apply our knowledge in these areas and determine if we can help Doe Run further improve its operations."

Doe Run Peru has invested more than $140 million on facility and environmental improvements since purchasing the Peruvian smelter from the government-run Centromin in 1997. The company continues to implement community programs in Peru, including those that support education

, agriculture, health, sanitation and community sustainability. Meanwhile, the plant continues to work to reduce plant emissions, which are at historic lows.

"We're constantly looking for ways to improve our facilities, and this opportunity allows us a unique chance to get several fresh perspectives," said Bob Roscoe, co-general manager at SEMO and Doe Run's Cobriza Mine. "We’re excited to participate in a project that has the potential to enhance our facilities, while at the same time enabling students to gain the vital experience they'll need to compete at a global level. We've worked with UMR on several occasions and we're delighted to share our expertise with them to educate the next generation of metallurgists and mine engineers."
