It is estimated that mineral rights were acquired with the land in about 1,200 cases where soldier settlers have repaid their loans. In all likelihood, in many instances there will be no minerals involved. For instance, a soldier settler in the Yorkton district of Saskatchewan would probably have no minerals in connection with his land. I cannot inform the committee the number of cases where mineral rights are known to exist.
