Series consists of sequentially numbered files that reflect the activities of the Mining Lands Branch. Included are individual mineral claim files, applications for leases, files dealing with aerial mapping, reports on hydraulic gold mining activities, files on the financial administration of the Branch, correspondence from the Gold Commissioner, reports on petroleum and natural gas wells, returns for mining royalties, and reports on mining companies and syndicates in both the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Files in this series were brought forward from the Mining Lands and Yukon Branch and given new file numbers. Some files actually originated with the Timber, Mines, Grazing and Irrigation Branch before 1906. As well files which had remained current were removed from this series after 1951 and integrated into the Northern Administration and Lands Branch's Northern Quartz (NQ) series. Many of these files have now been reintegrated into this system and therefore bear both a Mining Lands Branch file number and a Northern Quartz file number, as well as Mining Lands and Yukon Branch and Timber, Mines, Grazing and Irrigation Branch file numbers. Despite the inclusive dates of the series, almost all the files were started between 1928 and 1937, and carried on only until the late 1940s. The file jackets of this series bear the inscription "Territorial Mining Lands Service" even though this was not the formal title of an administrative unit in charge of the records.

Canada. Mining Lands Branch : In 1922, the Mining Lands and Yukon Branch of the Department of the Interior was split into a Mining Lands Branch and a Northwest Territories and Yukon Branch. The Mining Lands Branch retained only the responsibility for the leasing and regulation of mining operations in the prairies and the North. Its Controller, H.H. Rowatt, was renamed a Superintendent, and the Branch remained under the umbrella of the Dominion Lands Administration, reporting to the Commissioner of Dominion Lands. RG85 General Inventory
