Exploration Restricted Areas

Section 11 of the Exploration Regulations 284/2006, identifies areas of Alberta have prohibitions and restrictions on the conduct of geophysical exploration. As restricted areas have increased in number since the inception of the Exploration Regulation, these areas of Alberta are now delineated, described and posted on this web page.

Please note

All road allowances, highways, and public roads lying within or adjacent to any of the above described lands are included within the restricted areas.

If any discrepancy exists between a decsription of an area of Alberta and the map or outlining of that area, the description of the area prevails.
