An agreement between holders is required when the claim to be converted is located less than 400 metres from a claim held by a third party. An agreement may also be required regarding an application for replacement.
The agreement must include the NAD 83 geographic coordinates (latitude, longitude) of the boundaries of the claims that are subject to an application for conversion or replacement.
The agreement may be replaced by a summary document indicating that the claim boundaries defined on the official map of mining titles are accepted by the holders.
