Mission

Smithers Exploration Group is dedicated to the advancement of mineral exploration and mining in northwestern British Columbia.

We sponsor field trips and short courses; organize technical and general interest talks; and host conferences and social events. These activities are an important part of continual upgrading for our members. They also help to educate the general public about the importance of exploration and mining to the local economy and community sustainability. SEG circulates frequent emails, ensuring members are up-to-date on industry issues and events throughout the province. Our  on-line directory links suppliers with customers and is available on our website.

As part of SEG's commitment to work on behalf of the minerals industry and our members, we monitor policy that effects the well-being of the exploration industry and our membership. We work with the Association for Mineral Exploration (AME) and other regional exploration groups to advocate for policies that ensure the future of exploration and mining as key economic drivers in BC.
