A NICE HUNTING PROPERTY
BUILD YOUR HUNT CAMP
FISH FOR BROOK TROUT
COMBINE HUNTING AND FISHING ON YOUR PROPERTY
ATV or SNOWMOBILE ACCESS
The entire property is composed of THREE PATENTED MINING CLAIMS in Turnbull Township.
Turnbull Township is within the boundary of the City Of Timmins so therefore TURNBULL TOWNSHIP IS AN ORGANIZED TOWNSHIP.
The 3 properties are 11.65 acres, 30.79 acres and 36.17 acres for a total size of 78.61 acres.
A review of the original patent documents show that the properties come with SRO or Surface Rights Only.
The trees except for the Pine trees come with the properties.
The Pine trees are reserved to the Crown.
The mining rights (mineral rights) were forfeited back to the Crown in 1975 for non payment of the mining or mineral taxes.
Once the Crown takes those rights back they usually don’t sell them again.
Since the three properties abut each other and are owned under the same ownership then, under the Planning Act of Ontario they are deemed to be merged and are considered to be one property and need to be sold as one property.
WHAT CAN YOU BUILD ON THIS PROPERTY?
The City of Timmins has a by-law that states that if a property does NOT FRONT ON A MUNICIPALLY maintained road then you are limited to what you can build on the property.
In this case you are limited to build a “hunt camp” which can be no larger than 500 square feet.
ACCESS TO THIS PROPERTY
We class this property as A REMOTE ACCESS PROPERTY that can be reached by going through CROWN LAND.
Access to this property is pretty well limited to ATV/ARGO, SNOWMOBILE IN WINTER or WALKING/HIKING as there are no roads leading to the property.
The closest road is about a mile to the west.
This close road is a seasonal gravel road that comes north off the Mallette Lumber Road.
Then there is about 1 mile or 1.6 kilometer distance over Crown land to get to this property.
If you wanted to reach the property in the non-winter months you would have to apply and get a permit from The Ministry of Natural Resources (the MNR) to cut out an ATV/ARGO trail.
The MNR would have to approve the trail location.
Access to this property would be by snowmobile in winter.
You always have the added option to walk/hike through the Crown Land to get to the property.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
We don’t consider the property to be landlocked as there is Crown land that you can access over to get to the property.
The property is undeveloped and is surrounded on the west, north and east side by Crown Land.
The closest road is about one and a half miles to the south and an old timber road that has since grown in is now a snowmobile trail in winter comes to within just under a mile to the west of the property.
About 1,400 feet of Turnbull Creek does however flow through the property.
The creek is seasonal and it’s size mostly depends on how much snow there was over the winter and how good the spring melt is and also dep-ends on how much rain falls in the spring and over the summer.
We are told that there is a good SPECKLE TROUT (BROOK TROUT) fishery on this creek.
There are quite a few deep ponds along the creek so you know where the brook trout will be.
A review of the original patents documents reveal that the properties were patented dated August 17, 1915 and registered September 1, 1915 and that the properties were surveyed by an O.L.S. (Ontario Land Surveyor) John Shaw dated May 1, 1914.
A copy of each of the three surveys can be obtained from the Cochrane District Registry Office.
LIKE TO HUNT?

This property is located in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 30.
