MNDM Proposes Mandatory Conversion from Legacy to Cell-Based Claims.

November 2014

MNDM Proposes Mandatory Conversion from Legacy to Cell-Based Claims:

The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) has published a new proposal on the Environmental and Regulatory Registries of Ontario regarding the implementation of online staking and modernized mining lands administration in Ontario. The proposal aims to implement province-wide online staking of mining claims, and modernize the way mining lands are administered in Ontario following in the footsteps of British Columbia, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan and Quebec. More specifically, the approach proposes that a province-wide one time (mandatory) conversion of legacy claims is more suitable to Ontario. This approach aims "to provide more enhanced certainty of tenure/claim boundaries and more efficient and effective administration of mining lands". Whereas voluntary conversion would result in the opposite and could drag out the conversion process indefinitely. History has shown this to be true in other implementations across Canada.

The conversion strategy would start with 1) a transition period that would improve the accuracy of the current map through verification with the claim holders. Geo referencing your claims will be an important step in this process. Once this has been completed, the next stage would see 2) a delineation of the boundaries identified by coordinates. At this point, posts in the ground will no longer be the legal boundary identifier of the claim. This will be followed by 3) actual conversion from legacy to a cell based grid in a controlled and fair manner. All attribute information on the Legacy claims would be preserved and accessible. The final step will see 4) all title holders notified with the new description of their claim(s) accompanied by the new rules of claim management.

How Can a Title Holder Prepare?

Geo referencing your claim boundaries will be an important first step for claim holders in protecting their land assets, particularly in areas of tight claim fabric. A review of your subjected agreements is also strongly recommended especially if they include extended areas of interest. The government is planning for reasonable lead times through all phases and is working to propose changes to the mining act to better support title holders through the proposed conversion process and into the post conversion world. As we approach this sea change, knowledge of the changes will be paramount and a sound conversion plan critical. Speak to your lands manager about options and concerns and stay tuned for further updates as these changes are reviewed, approved and implemented.

Looking for Alternatives to Ontario's New Plan/Permit Requirements?

August 2013

Ontario's new Mining Act Modernization demands new Plan and Permit applications be made for many common exploration activities. Early exploration activities requiring an exploration plan include:

  • Geophysical Activity requiring a power generator.
  • Line cutting, where the width of the line is 1.5 metres or less.
  • Mechanized drilling for the purposes of obtaining rock or mineral samples, where the weight of the drill is 150 kilograms or less.
  • Mechanized surface stripping (overburden removal), where the total combined surface area stripped is less than 100 square metres within a 200-metre radius.
  • Pitting and trenching (of rock), where the total volume of rock is between 1-3 cubic metres within a 200-metre radius.

Early exploration activities that require an exploration permit include:

  • Line cutting, where the width of the line is more than 1.5 metres.
  • Mechanized drilling, for the purpose of obtaining rock or mineral samples, where the weight of the drill is greater than 150 kilograms.
  • Mechanized surface stripping (overburden removal), where the total combined surface area stripped is greater than 100 square metres and up to advanced exploration thresholds, within a 200-metre radius.
  • Pitting and trenching (rock), where the total volume of rock is greater than 3 cubic metres and up to advanced exploration thresholds, within a 200-metre radius.


Caracle Creek's robust variety of services and experienced team of professionals offer project options that do not require a plan or permit. These are all eligible for exploration credits that will help to keep your land assets in good standing and can be started without the delay and expense that comes with the new regulations:


  • Transient Geophysical Surveys such as Caracle Creek and Geoserve's proprietary Earth Probe, a new IP/Resistivity technology
  • Geo referencing claims
  • Aboriginal consultation
  • Prospecting activities such as grab/hand sampling, geochemical/soil sampling, geological mapping
  • Stripping/pitting/trenching below thresholds for Permits
  • Other baseline data acquisition such as taking photos, measuring water quality, etc.
