St. Louis-based Doe Run Co. has announced the promotion of Anthony Staley to vice president and general manager of the lead mining and production firm’s Metals Division. Staley will join the company’s executive team and will continue to oversee recycling operations at Doe Run’s lead recycling facility in Boss, Missouri, and its refinery in Herculaneum, Missouri.

“We are pleased to welcome Anthony to our executive team,” says Jerry Pyatt, Doe Run president and CEO. “Anthony has demonstrated strong leadership skills and operational acumen that are important to achieving our operational, safety and environmental goals.”

Staley joined Doe Run in 2017 as general manager of the company’s Metals Division. The majority of Staley’s role has been managing the Resource Recycling operation, which Doe Run describes as “one of the world’s largest single-site lead battery recycling facilities.” He also oversees the company’s refinery in Herculaneum, where metal alloying and casting takes place.

The company describes Staley as “bringing a deep knowledge of metallurgy and sound business and operational improvements to the operation.” He has more than 20 years of experience in operations and management at mining and metal production facilities.

Doe Run’s Metals Division has more than 300 employees, most of them involved in the recycling of lead-based materials. The Doe Run Resource Recycling facility annually recycles approximately 11.5 million lead batteries and other lead-bearing material, including lead bullets and shot, lead-based paint chips, metallic lead scrap and lead-bearing residues.
