(5)  the lines between the four posts must be marked on the land so that the outlines of the claim are clearly visible from one post to the other;

(7)  every post shall stand not less than one metre nor more than 1.5 metres above the ground and have a diameter of approximately 10 centimetres or, if made of metal, 2 centimetres and shall be squared or faced on four sides for at least 30 centimetres from the top; a standing stump or tree of the same dimensions may be used as a post;
(8)  where a post cannot be planted or erected in a durable manner, it must be kept in place by a heap of stones or earth of not less than 75 centimetres in diameter and at least 50 centimetres high;
(9)  no post used for the staking of a claim may be used to stake another claim;
(10)  a staker who begins the staking of a claim must complete it before beginning the staking of another claim;
