On October 31, 2019, Alberta Energy released Information Letter 2019-37 (https://inform.energy.gov.ab.ca/Documents/Published/IL-2019-37.pdf). Effective immediately, we will no longer require proof of consent from overlapping Crown mineral rights holders for new or existing disposal schemes where the disposal scheme applicant or approval holder has a valid Crown authorization to dispose issued by Alberta Energy under section 54(5) or section 32(4) of the Mines and Minerals Act.

We will revise any affected regulatory instruments to reflect this change.
