Bonanza Creek Gold Mining Co. v The King, ( 1916) 1 AC 566

Facts:

B incorporated in ON. Letters patent included nothing re limitation on area of operation. B acquired Yukon license authorizing companies incorporated outside Yukon to carry on business

Issue(s):

Whether a company incorporated by provincial letters patent, can have capacity to acquire and exercise powers and rights outside the territorial boundaries of the province

Ratio:

What the words (w/ prov object) do is preclude the grant of powers and rights in respect of objects outside the prov, while leaving untouched the ability of the corp to accept such rights if granted by another prov

Holding:

Appeal Dismissed - they subsequently obtained a good title to the mining locations
