As you may know, SME partnered with Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and successfully launched the Mining in Society Merit Badge in 2014. We need help continuing to educate Scouts and creating interest in the mining sector and related industries. In July 2017 the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, West Virginia is hosting 50,000+ Scouts, Venturers and leaders from around the nation and SME has the honor to participate with a Mining in Society merit badge booth. The Jamboree happens every four years, so it is a huge event. We need help in two areas: Volunteers and financial donations.

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.

Mission Statement

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 web site.

ASMR is a 501 (C)(3) organization. Requests for financial information should be directed to the Executive Secretary, Dr. Robert Darmody.
