Line cutting exploration is typically the first physical exploration work to be done on a claim. When line cutting, there is a baseline through the middle of the survey area with a series of grid or wing lines running off the baseline at 90-degree angles. Wood pickets with written coordinates are placed in the ground at regular intervals along the lines. These pickets give explorationists a coordinate system that helps locate the features on maps for further work.
Line cutting provides a coordinate system and path for additional exploration work, such as geological mapping and geophysical surveys. In Canada, line cutting is typically done in the fall or winter when the ground is frozen, and there is snow cover, which makes it easier to see the line. The line cutters use GPS units to establish the line, and then they clear vegetation and mark the string with bright orange paint or flags.
