Revised MTO Cell Availability Schedule - Time Extension Order

The time extension order signed by the Chief Gold Commissioner on March 27, 2020 provided title holders with additional time, until December 31, 2021, to register work, make payment instead of work, or apply rental to keep their titles in good standing. The order applies to all titles that have a good to date on or before December 31, 2021

The time extension order does not change the expiry (good to date) of any titles.

At midnight on December 31, 2021, mineral or placer claims having a good to date before January 1, 2022 forfeited.

Due to the number of claims that forfeited and the anticipated high interest,  Mineral Titles Branch has chosen to alter the date when cells of the forfeited claims become available.

Cells will become available as follows:
