Exploration Directives & Forms

Exploration Directives
Exploration regulations specify what the geophysical industry must do in their day-to-day activities involving geophysical operations to ensure regulatory compliance. Complementary exploration directives specifically advise how operators must conduct these field activities in accordance with the exploration regulations.

Exploration Restricted Areas
Section 11 of the Exploration Regulations 284/2006 identifies areas of Alberta that have prohibitions and restrictions on the conduct of geophysical exploration. As restricted areas have increased in number since the inception of the Exploration Regulation, for the benefit of landowners, industry, and Alberta’s public, the Government of Alberta has created a searchable database of these areas. Users can now look up restricted areas and their associated descriptions by county/district, restricted area number, and/or legal land description.

Important note: All road allowances, highways, and public roads lying within or beside any of the above described lands are included within the restricted areas. If any discrepancy exists between a description of an area of Alberta and the map or outlining of that area, the description of the area prevails.
