Using the township range signs which were located near this schoolhouse sign, this marker is located near the intersection of Twp Rd 474 and Rge Rd 3262.

The first number of the Range Road is the meridian and the next numbers are the range number (incrementing every 6 miles west of the meridian to demark the east and west borders of a township). The last number is how many miles the range road is from the eastern edge of the range, or the eastern border of the 6 miles by 6 miles township. This sign indicates that this plaque is west of the third meridian, in range 26 and 0 miles from the eastern border of the township. The township sign indicates that the intersection of the north west range road and the east west township road is located in township 47 and 4 miles north of southern edge of the township.

So the intersection is located in township 47, range 26 west of the third meridian, and the section would be 2 miles from the eastern border of the township, and 4 miles north of the southern border. Examining the layout of sections and their numbers, this would make the intersection near quarter 24 Tsp 47 Rge 26 W3 and the schoolhouse has been recorded by Bill Barry at SW Sec 26 Tsp 47 Rge 26 W of the 3 Meridian near Lashburn, Saskatchewan.
