New merit badge: Mining in Society

MiningA new merit badge, Mining in Society, is set for an early 2014 launch. Mining has been an important part of the United States since the 19th century. Today, the U.S. mining industry employes 3 million people, directly and indirectly, and is a major contributor to the global mining landscape. This merit badge is expected to cover the history of mining, explore the status of mining in the 21st century, and introduce Scouts to modern mining careers.
