2. Validation of title of Robert Muir as owner in fee simple of Albany Lot 184
For the purpose of resolving any doubts that may exist as to the validity of the sale of the land known as Albany Lot 184 by the Municipality of Albany to Robert Muir as is evidenced by the certificate of sale dated 28 January 1874 registered in the Office of the Registrar of Deeds, in Book VII., No. 1376, and as to the nature of the estate or interest purchased in that lot by Robert Muir at the sale, that sale shall be regarded for all purposes
as a valid sale to the said Robert Muir of an estate in fee simple in the said lot freed and discharged from all claims and encumbrances as against him as purchaser subject to the exceptions, if any, mentioned in the certificate of sale referred to,
as though the land had been validly alienated from the Crown prior to that sale and a Crown grant in respect thereof had been lawfully issued to the grantee subject expressly to the reservation to the Crown of all mines of gold, silver, and other precious metals in or under the land, with full liberty to the Crown and to any person or persons authorised by, or acting on behalf of, the Crown at all times to search and dig for, and carry away the same, and for that purpose to enter upon the land or any part thereof.
