In and around the early 1900s, the Government of Canada used Crown grants to issue interests in land.
If a Crown grant includes rights to mines and minerals, including quartz, in the location of the grant, quartz claims cannot be staked over the location of that Crown grant. If the Crown grant included both placer and quartz rights then neither type of claim can be staked over the Crown grant.
This data represents the location of crown grants in the Yukon.
