Territory reserved for staking and map designation
Since November 22, 2000, claims have been attributed by a system of map designation in Québec. This system respects the vested rights of the holders of staked claims.
From time to time, the Minister modifies the territories reserved for staking and map designation, as well as the shape and area of the parcels of land that can be designated on a map. Whenever a territory or the boundaries of parcels of land are modified, a notice to that effect is published.
The maps of mining titles show the boundaries determined for the territories by the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune and can be viewed at any time in regional offices and through Gestim.
