60. Except where the parcel of land subject to the staked claim is the subject of a statement establishing that it is not located within the boundaries of a parcel of land that is or may be subject to a claim obtained by map designation, a subsequent purchaser of a claim who finds staking irregularities that may result in revocation of the claim may restake the parcel of land in accordance with this division if the validity of the claim is not contested, and file a new notice of staking accompanied with a declaration clearly stating the irregularities and with a sketch of the irregularities.
A notice of staking under the first paragraph is equivalent to a notice of abandonment of the former claim and takes effect upon the issuance of the certificate of registration for the new claim. The new claim is deemed to exist from the same date as that of the former claim and entails the same rights and obligations.
