New Brunswick e-CLAIMS
On Wednesday April 14, 2010 the New Brunswick’s online mineral map staking system — NB e-CLAIMS went live.
Nb e-CLAIMS enables prospectors and mining companies worldwide to acquire and manage mineral claims 24/7. NB e-CLAIMS supports the preservation of a diverse, changing set of land and resource values for future generations while enabling improved global access to resource development in support of economic growth and employment that sustain vibrant local communities.
NB e-CLAIMS enables authorized users to view up-to-date mineral or petroleum claim information on a digital map over the Internet, determine the availability of claims of interest, assess land classifications, acquire, renew exploration rights, make online payments and secure confirmation of such acquisitions or renewals.
The development and deployment of NB e-CLAIMS was a collaborative process between the Minerals & Petroleum Development Branch of the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources, the prime contractor Pacific GeoTech Systems(PGTS) and ESRI Canada (Atlantic Region).
