    I watched an episode today of Impossible Engineering called "Underwater Mega Tower" (Season 5 Episode 6, 2019) on the Science Channel.

    It's about building a big hotel on the cliffs of a quarry in Asia. About 5 minutes into the program they show a long segment about Bonne Terre Mine in Missouri.

    It's not about diving the mine; it is about the technology that was engineered 100 years ago to allow the miners to remove lead from Bonne Terre and how this technology may be applicable to the construction of a modern hotel.

    I thought that it was an interesting show and enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about Bonne Terre; see the link below.
