Scouts learn about different aspects of the mining industry while working on the Mining in Society merit badge. They consider how to mine minerals and how to transport materials. They also explore careers related to mining.
Mining in Society Merit Badge
We use the materials obtained by mining everyday. We find them in the pots and pans we use to cook breakfast, the toothpaste we put on our toothbrushes, the pencils we write with, our electronic devices, our automobiles, and all throughout our homes.
