What is ASMR?
The American Society of Mining and Reclamation (ASMR) was founded in 1973 as a small West Virginia advisory council concerned with reclamation of lands that had been disturbed by coal extraction. ASMR has evolved into a professional society of international prominence, including members from 20 countries. Initially ASMR focused on lands disturbed by coal mining. ASMR's professional interests now include all aspects of land reclamation; and, the protection and enhancement of soil and water resources regardless of the source of the disturbance.

ASMR's mission is to represent and serve a diverse national and international community of scientists, practitioners, private industry, technicians, educators, planners, and government regulators involved in mineral extraction and the reclamation of disturbed lands. ASMR promotes the advancement of basic and applied reclamation science through research and technology transfer in the Society's annual meetings, workshops, published proceedings, newsletters, Reclamation Matters magazine, and the ASMR website.
