SEG April 2017 Enews Update

April continues as a busy time for the industry. SEG hosts its monthly Rocks ‘n Rambling next Friday April 7 at Rugged Edge in Smithers. If you’re still looking for a SEG directory to exploration services in the  north, they will be available at KEG in Kamloops this week April 4 & 5 and later in April 25-27 at Minerals North in Prince George.  If you’re in Vancouver April 20 or 21, check out some important training opportunities with the Association for Mineral Exploration. And then back in Smithers, get into provincial election mode with the Chamber of Commerce’s Stikine all-candidate forum on April 26 and then remember to Vote Mining on May 9.   And of course plan ahead with SEG and the Chamber’s annual Mining Week on Friday May 12 in Smithers in advance of Mining Week.  And as the snow melts plan for NWCC’s annual Smithers golf tournament on May 26
