Crown Granted 2 Post Mineral Claims Notices
A Crown granted 2 post mineral claim (Crown Grant) refers to a mineral claim issued under one of the predecessor Mineral Acts or Taxation Acts; where the mineral claim was located, surveyed, and then converted to a Crown Grant. Crown Grants were issued from 1874 to 1960. A Crown Grant may hold sub-surface rights to the land within the surveyed lot, and therefore may have an impact on the mineral rights acquired in any overlying mineral or placer cell claim.
When a Crown Grant escheats, forfeits, reverts or is surrendered, the rights revert back to the Crown. Section 26 of the Mineral Tenure Act requires the publication of a notice in the BC Gazette prior to the mineral rights being made available for acquisition.
For your use and reference, we have compiled a list of Crown Grant lots that have reverted back to the Crown and have had a notice published in the BC Gazette between August, 15, 1988 to present day. The list is sorted by land district.
