60.1. The Minister shall determine the boundaries of the territories in which claims may be obtained by staking and the boundaries of the territories in which claims may be obtained by map designation, and indicate them on maps kept at the office of the registrar. The Minister shall, from time to time, modify the boundaries of the territories as and when claims obtained by staking are map designated or converted into map designated claims, are not renewed, or are abandoned or revoked.
The notice of modification, accompanied with the map showing the new boundaries of the territories, must be filed and kept at the office of the registrar, and a copy of the notice must be posted in a conspicuous place at the office of the registrar.
The modification shall take effect after the filing, on the date indicated in the notice. However, no such modification may affect the right of a person having staked a parcel of land before the date indicated in the notice or before the date and time of filing of a notice of map designation to file a notice of staking for registration within the required time. In such a case, a corresponding modification shall be made to the map accompanying the notice of modification, except if the person agrees to a conversion into a map designated claim.
