Notice
It has come to our attention that the Expiry Date for mining claims on the iMaQs map viewer and on the Mining and Quarrying in map in the Map Gallery is incorrect. In both of these viewers the Expiry Date is one day too soon.  To find the correct date, use the Mining Search function in iMaQs to determine the Expiry Date.
