Description:

Abstract: Polylines representing the confirmed GPS location of Crown mineral non-conforming legacy (registered pre-December 1, 2012) disposition boundaries in the Province of Saskatchewan.  This data is suitable for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Computer Aided Drawing Systems (CAD).

 

Purpose:

Confirmation from clients is required for the conversion from paper/physical staking to the Ministry’s Crown minerals electronic online registry system MARS (Mineral Administration Registry Saskatchewan).  MARS is administered under The Mineral Tenure Registry Regulations, effective December 1, 2012 and The Crown Minerals Act, c. C-50.2, Part VII Crown Minerals Electronic Registry, 2010.  Non-conforming legacy mineral disposition holders will have until January 1, 2015 to confirm the electronic coordinates of their disposition boundaries. The above Regulations and Act are available for downloading from Queen’s Printer by clicking on the following link: http://www.qp.gov.sk.ca

 

This shapefile tracks the conversion of Crown mineral non-conforming legacy dispositions from physical post location based boundaries to GPS based boundaries.  A non-conforming legacy disposition is a legacy disposition the boundary of which does not meet the prescribed requirements for the mineral disposition electronic parcel mapping system.  In other words, an area that has not been legally surveyed.

 

To assist disposition holders in this process the Ministry had calculated the electronic coordinates for the existing boundaries of these non-conforming legacy dispositions based on the GIS mapping information maintained in the Geological Atlas.  Electronic data files showing the proposed electronic coordinates of each disposition is available from the Ministry’s website.  These are a zipped text file, complete zipped shapefile, and an excel spreadsheet available by clicking on the following link: http://www.economy.gov.sk.ca/Boundary-Conf-Point-Data

 

Supplemental_Information: After Jan 1, 2015, all Crown mineral dispositions will by definition be located by map coordinates.  The Ministry’s electronic online registry system, MARS, is hosted by Information Services Corporation of Saskatchewan (ISC).  The MARS site is available by clicking on the following link www.mars.isc.ca .  ISC also produces and maintains the Mineral Cadastral Parcel Mapping dataset as referenced in The Land Titles Act, 2000 and the SaskGrid Township Fabric Map as referenced in The Mineral Tenure Registry Regulations.  Connect to ISC by clicking on the following link: www.GeoSask.ca
