288. Every person except the holder of a revoked mining right, may, within 30 days of the date on which the revocation of a mining exploration licence, mining lease, mining concession or mining right relating to the seabed or surface mineral substances has become executory, obtain, in accordance with this Act, a claim by notice of map designation, a lease to mine surface mineral substances or a mining right relating to the seabed in respect of all or part of the land that was subject to the revoked mining right.
Thereafter, a person whose mining right has been revoked may also obtain, in accordance with this Act, a right referred to in the first paragraph in relation to all or part of the parcel of land subject to the revoked mining right.
If the interested person discontinues his appeal from the decision revoking his right, the prescribed time runs from the date of filing of a notice of discontinuance in the office of the Court of Québec.
