The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of more than 2 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of nearly 500 lawyers, scientists and other professionals to fight for the planet and its people in the halls of Congress, communities across the country, and nations around the globe. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff – a force for nature - work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.

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.

13th International Mine Water Association Congress – “Mine Water & Circular Economy – A Green Congress”

June 25 to 30, 2017, Lappeenranta, Finland

SuperUser Account 0 1

Mining and reliable mine water management are of outstanding importance for the Finnish and worldwide mining industry. Unknown to many outside Scandinavia, Finland is one of the most prominent European mining countries with commodities ranging from gold and silver to base metals and platinum group elements. Its political stability has made Finland a prominent country for exploration, with 40 to 50 projects currently under investigation. Its pristine landscape, especially in the arctic north of the country, requires a high environmental responsibility by the mine operators and the regulators, as Finnish people expect that their watercourses and forests are protected at all costs. IMWA’s 13th Congress will also focus on the experience that mining companies and researchers as well as consulters have gained in this highly vulnerable northern environment. But, as you are expecting, IMWA 2017 will cover all ranges of mine water topics that you think are relevant.

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.
