91. Sales under section 89, conducted by any officer of the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources or by any other person, who shall, for that purpose, receive instructions from the Minister, shall be held at the place and in the manner specified in the notice published in the Gazette officielle du Québec and in the newspapers specified by the Minister, which notice shall be published at least thirty days before the sale.
However, in the case of limits of small extent or of small value (the Upper and Lower Ottawa agencies excepted) and when it is in the public interest to expedite the sale, the Minister may sell, after fifteen days’ notice published as prescribed in the first paragraph of this section.
Such notice shall contain a description of the limits to be sold and their situation; and there shall also be deposited in the Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources, or in the office of the timber agent for the locality in which such sale is to take place, a plan of the territory in which such limits and those adjoining them are situated.
Such plan shall remain open to public inspection during the whole period between the publication of the notice and the day fixed for the sale.
The person presiding over the sale shall, at the hour thereof, make known the upset price fixed for each limit by the Minister after it has been explored and valued approximately by the department.
