A $40,000 donation from Doe Run Co. helped boost the experiential learning options for students in S&T geology and mining and metallurgical engineering programs.

The donation helped purchase an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, which will allow students to measure and analyze the chemical makeup of solids, liquids, alloys, powders and thin films. It will also help students process complex mineral sources and study bioactive glasses and new steelmaking methods.

“Missouri S&T has needed an XRF for more than 15 years, but the equipment requires a significant investment,” says Michael Moats, MetE’92, MS MetE’95, dean’s scholar in the College of Engineering and Computing at Missouri S&T. “Through Doe Run’s generous gift, and the support of other funders, Missouri S&T will be able to fill this need for our undergraduate and graduate students.”
