Where to Start

The fabric, method of acquisition and management of unpatented mining claims in Ontario is about to change.

Are you ready?

The traditionally manual system of ground and paper staking and managing unpatented mining claims in Ontario will be replaced with an innovative online Mining Lands Administration System referred to as “MLAS”. Upon “conversion” to the online system, all active unpatented claims will be converted from their place on the land being legally defined by claim posts on the ground or by township survey to being legally defined by their cell and coordinate location on the provincial grid in CLAIMaps.
