Doe Run's Maroon Team won the championship title at the Mine Safety and Health Administration’s 2010 and 2014 Metal/Nonmetal National Mine Rescue Competitions. To win, the team managed a simulated mine emergency that tested how well its members adhered to mine rescue procedures and how quickly they completed specific tasks.
- Two Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO) mines received the prestigious Mine Safety and Health Administration's (MSHA) Sentinels of Safety Award in 2012. The Buick Mine won for outstanding safety performance in the Large Underground Metal Mine category, and the #29 Mine was honored in the Small Underground Metal Mine category. The Sentinels of Safety are the highest safety honor in the U.S. mining industry. Doe Run and its predecessors have earned this award 27 times since 1971.
