In exchange, First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun agreed to grant to Government of Yukon the fee simple interest, including the Specified Substances as that term is defined in the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun Final Agreement, in Lot 1114, Quad 105 M/12 on Plan 101300 CLSR, 2012-0209 LTO ("Parcel B"), the exchange and grant being made pursuant to the Yukon First Nations Land Claims Settlement Act (Canada) S.C. 1994, c.34 and the Act Approving Yukon Land Claims Agreements (Yukon), R.S.Y. 2002, c.240, s. 5.10.1.3 and s.9.6.1 of the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun Final Agreement.
