Subject:

Re: Nelson House - your memo of November 7, 1976.

The attached map shows the areas reserved in our registers pending final settlement of negotiations with the Nelson House Band. Please confirm to the Flood Committee that the areas requested have been tentatively entered. This ensures that no other disposition will occur without your office being first advised but it does not reflect a Ministerial or Cabinet commiment on the lands.

Please be advised of the following prior commitments against these lands that will have to be considered relative to any final settlement.

Range 13 W.P.M.

It would appear that where water storage severance survey lines are established, the remaining water power reserve can be withdrawn to that severance line. The mines and minerals are withdrawn in favor of the Crown and therefore can be dealt with by the Crown. The other reservations are in lieu of negotiations with the Band and would not appear to restrict your requested temporary reservation. If you have questions, please phone or write for clarification. The area reserved is to the outside of the lands outlined in blue. The red indicates the approximate sketch area you outlined on the maps you forwarded to this office.
