Introducing CLAIMaps IV – using a Geocortex viewer

The last day to stake a mining claim in Ontario was January 8, 2018

The Pre-conversion period began January 9, 2018.  Are you ready? All applications to record staked claims must be submitted to the Provincial Recording Office within 30 days from the day of staking.


The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) CLAIMaps is intended to better serve and meet the needs of business and the mining industry in Ontario. Newly added functionality, data and imagery will improve a client’s ability to maintain and manage mining lands in a modern look and feel.

The CLAIMaps application provides search and navigation tools while providing added functions. Basemaps and imagery provide a more enhanced visual product with the ability to create, modify and print custom made as well as provide standard mapping products. Markup and printing tools aid with identifying and displaying specific features on a map.

As part of our commitment to customer service, MNDM will continue to provide excellence in mapping services including in meeting its obligation to comply with the Access to Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). This newly introduced legislation is intended to better accommodate people with disabilities while improving and maintaining the high standard of service that MNDM provides to clients and the general public.

As MNDM is moving closer to the implementation of the new Mining Lands Administration System (MLAS), some key dates are fast approaching regarding preparation towards final determination. Applications to Record a mining claim must be submitted to the Provincial recording office by Wednesday February 7, 2018.

If you have submitted a CBR, please ensure that you also submit a confirmation form before February 24, 2018.
