Badger Mining Corporation (BMC) is committed to improving the communities in which we live and work. We do this through volunteerism and philanthropically supporting our local communities and the communities of our customers. BMC associates support our communities by assisting with food distribution at Food Pantries, keeping our highways clean by participating in the Adopt-a-Highway program, volunteering on local Fire and EMS Departments, serving on community boards and committees, and volunteering during weather-related emergencies.

We partner with our local schools to educate our youth and provide activities for them to better understand industrial sand and its everyday uses. In addition, BMC invites local youth to be involved with planting hundreds of trees each year demonstrating the importance of reclamation to our environment.

Badger Mining Corporation is a member of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and Markesan Chamber of Commerce. We actively participate in community events and provide support to our customers’ communities by supporting their fundraising efforts and charities.

Since 2001, Badger Mining Corporation has been a company-sponsor of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) 9-day disabled gun deer hunt. The WDNR created the season in 1990 in order to provide opportunities for individuals with certain disabilities to enjoy deer hunting at a time of year in which temperatures are generally milder and mobility in the woods is easier.
