The government says the highlight of the sale of Crown petroleum and natural gas rights was the intense competition for Viking Sand lease parcels in west-central Saskatchewan.
To date, total land sale revenues for 2012 are resting at $94.2 million.
Last year at this time, the October land sale rang in at $13.1 million as compared to 2010 when the province raked in $34.5 million.
The next sale will be Dec. 3.
