SEG September 2019 Enews Update

This September newsletter from Smithers Exploration Group starts with some excellent news and an invitation to our fall bbq.

  • Smithers Exploration Group welcomes the new Northwest Regional Geologist Sean Tombe
  • Pencil in time for a fall barbeque at the SEG office on Friday September 13 to celebrate the 2019 field season.
  • Start planning ahead for an advertisement in SEG’s 2020 directory and keep the directory in mind if you have some hi-res photos that you can share.

Northwest Regional Geologist Sean Tombe starts October 7

This is truly exciting news. Northwest BC has a new regional geologist. Sean Tombe starts work out of Smithers on October 7. Sean worked at Brucejack from exploration through to production including a Masters in the Brucejack deposit through the University of Alberta. He is currently working  at Silvertip Mine where he is also on mine rescue team.

SEG has been advocating for the regional geologist position for several years, knowing how important the position is to the success of the mineral exploration and mining industries in the northwest. We would like to thank the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources for responding to the advocacy, and Northwest Regional Director Howard Davies for his unswerving commitment to hiring a regional geo for the region.

Welcome Sean.

SEG Fall BBQ, Friday September 13

  • Place: SEG office  101 – 3423 Fulton Ave, Smithers BC

SEG 2020 directory

Smithers Exploration Group’s annual directory is a hot item at AME’s Roundup in January, so you don’t want to be disappointed by missing out on getting your ad ready. We distributed 500 copies at Roundup 2019 and that’s a great way of getting your services noticed.  An ad in the directory is a great bang for your advertising buck but you can also be listed in the directory free of charge.  If your listing contact information has changed – phone or email – or if you are not yet listed,  please send us the new information.

IMPORTANT - We are also looking for high resolution photographs of your 2019 summer field work.

Watch for details on rates and advertising deadlines.  If your listing information has changed and if you have some hi-res photos, please contact Elaine Konschuh at
