THE PROPERTY RIGHTS
A review of the original patent papers reveals the following;
SURFACE RIGHTS COME WITH THIS PROPERTY
MINERAL RIGHTS COME WITH THIS PROPERTY
TREE RIGHTS COME WITH THE PROPERTY except for the “Pine Trees” which are reserved to the Crown.
THE LAND PATENT
The patent shows that the property was surveyed by an Ontario Land Surveyor named G.P.Angus on May 29, 1916.
The patent paperwork also states that all ores mined have to be treated and refined within Canada.
These documents make for some pretty interesting reading.
CROWN LAND adjoins the property to the south, to the east and to the west.
About 1,000 acres of Crown lands can be easily accessed from this property.
That is a very large playground to go hunting and exploring on!
The mature timber was harvested probably about 6-8 years ago.
In this area the timber is going to consist mostly of Spruce trees, Poplar trees and Birch trees with some Balsam trees mixed in throughout.
We have a 2014 aerial photograph taken at the end of March 2014 that shows the mature timber was harvested so we think the harvest took place at least 2 years or more prior to that.
The timber harvest most likely too place in the winter and wood was taken out over a winter road.
On the aerial photos you can see the remains of the winter road.
It has started to grow in and today may be passable by ATV or ARGO only.
Of course, in winter you could easily get there by snowmobile.
33 acres in size.
It is mostly high land and is dry.
The contour maps show no swamp or wet areas on the property.
The south end of the property is at about 303 meters above sea level for the first 130 meters or so (about 10 acres) and then it rises to 310 meters above sea level and levels out for about 250 meters (about 21 acres) and then the northeast corner of the property rises to 320 meters above sea level (about 2 acres).
What you have are two big plateau’s one about 10 acres in size and the other about 21 acres in size.
This is nice dry land offering good views of the countryside.

Just bring in proof of land ownership to the MNR and buy a non-resident black bear tag and GO HUNTING in WMU 28.

HISTORY OF BOSTON CREEK
Boston Creek is an unincorporated community in the Canadian province of Ontario, located within the Unorganized West Part division of Timiskaming District.
The newly constructed Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway in 1906 had it own railside towns.
One was Boston Creek.
But the town also had something else going for it. Gold!
During the 1930s, it was predicted the discovery of gold at Boston Creek might rival the established field known as Kirkland Lake.
The town had a school, stores, a boarding house, and what appeared to be a bright future.
Few of the mines survived the World War II era and Boston Creek was one of them.
The town began to fade and today is a partially ghosted settlement.
