The study evaluates the operation and effectiveness of cadastral system on mining title administration in Nigeria. The study used a random sampling technique to collect data from 100 respondents. Data collected was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) and Pearson correlation was used to test the hypotheses. The findings revealed that 71% of the respondents agreed that cadastral system allow smooth efficient designations of decisions. This implied that the lengthy and costly procedure for title registration in Nigeria has been reduced drastically by cadastral system by maintaining a chronological record of all applications for mineral titles in a priority register and also maintains a general register which is to be used for all other types of application where registration of the priority is not required. Moreover, lapses and overlapping problem have been prevented this was made possible by the system by checking the eligibility of applicants and making decisions to grant or refuse applications especially in the case of new applications. Also, the conflict between small and large customers has been reduced drastically by strictly adhere to first come first served ground rules by cadastral system. The study therefore recommended that licensing should start and finish at zonal offices particularly for small and artisan miners in order to ensure efficient performance.
