Abstract

The Doe Run Co.'s Casteel Mine is located in the Ozark Region of southeast Missouri just west of the community of Bixby (Fig. 1). Number 35 shaft which was begun in 1981 provides access to the mine that was dedicated posthumously to Larry W. Casteel (1915-1985), a former Division Manager and Vice President of Mining for st. Joe Minerals Corp. on November 8, 1985. St. Joseph Lead Co. discovered the ore deposit in 1957 and St. Joe Minerals Corp. (a subsidiary of the Fluor Corp.) brought the mine into production in 1985. On November 1, 1986 the Casteel Mine became part of The Doe Run Co., a partnership of Fluor Corp. and Homestake Corp.
