       (b)    the date any subsequent exploration licence issued under the Mineral Resources Act for the excepted portion of land within the 1-year period referred to in clause (a), or any valid continuation of the mineral right granted by that subsequent exploration licence, no longer applies to the excepted portion of land as a result of the surrender, abandonment, forfeiture, expiration, cancellation or termination of that subsequent exploration licence or continued mineral right.
