6. He shall forward, each year, to the secretary-treasurer of every county municipality, a list of the public lands for which occupation licenses or location tickets have been granted in such county municipality, during the year next preceding, and for which no patents have been issued.
Such lands shall be liable for the assessed taxes in the townships in which they respectively lie, from the date of such license or location ticket; and the purchaser, at the sale of any such lands for taxes, shall have in the lands so sold the same rights only as the person entitled to claim under the Crown at the time of such sale.
He shall, in like manner, apprise each such secretary-treasurer of the cancellation of any occupation license or location ticket, and the registrar of every county or registration division of the cancellation of any patent of land within such county or registration division. From that time and until resold, leased or regranted, the land affected shall cease to be liable to taxes.
