Engineering gorup in 1974 handled the El Paso Lead smelter job, and 50% of the uranium projects....

[in the olden days, lead smelters were used to separate out uranium from the original ores (still are, in Korea)]

"...I left OZ in October of 1974 to take on the PM job for New Jersey Zinc’s Zinc Refinery in Clarksville Tennessee...the company made me Manager and the Vice President of the Non-Ferrous Division....At the time I had what was probably the largest engineering group in the world doing lead-zinc projects as well as uranium extraction projects. We were getting around half the uranium projects on offer and we had the El Paso lead smelter job...."
