Mining & Exploration

Smythe’s dedicated team of professionals bring a high degree of practical, technical and commercial expertise to our clients. We have extensive experience with accounting, audit, taxation, transaction advisory and required filings for mining and exploration companies.


The multi-billion dollar mining and exploration industry is vital to the British Columbian and Canadian economies. Companies in this space face numerous challenges, particularly concerning commodity pricing and investment. We understand that timely, accurate and in-depth audits are crucial to performance. 

Our services build on this and encompass all stages of your company’s development, from exploration to development and production, including the transition in between. Our team of experts possesses decades of experience and a deep understanding of the mining and exploration landscape and how to help navigate it.
