10. An application for the renewal of claims shall include the renewal fees. The fees shall be fixed, by adding, for each of the claims covered by the application, the amounts applicable to them provided for in the tables referred to in the first paragraph of section 8.
The fees for the first renewal following the conversion of a claim situated north of the 52nd degree north latitude shall, however, be fixed by adding the renewal fees for each staked claim covered by the application for conversion and by allocating the resulting total renewal fees among the converted claims in proportion to the respective area of each.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the fees for the renewal of a claim shall be doubled where the renewal of a claim is applied for on the 60th day preceding its expiry date or after that date but before the date of expiry of the claim.
