    Six oil sands mining companies operating in the Northern Athabasca Oil Sands area agreed to participate in coordinated seed harvesting and banking, and the OSVC was born.

    Oil sands are actually found all over the world, and are sometimes referred to as tar sands or bituminous sands. A typical oil sands deposit in Alberta contains on average about 10% bitumen, 5% water and 85% solids, mostly in the form of coarse silica sand. Oil sands also contain fine solids and clays, typically in the range of 10 to 30% by :// The development of the oil sands in Alberta region began more than 40 years ago, and now it covers about square km of land, which is about 60% of the whole area of the Alberta province. These lands are leased to numerous companies, including Aboriginal ://

The Athabasca deposit Abstract. The Athabasca Oil Sands Region of northeastern Alberta has been, and will continue to be, a significant source of SO 2 and NO X emissions.

Though less discussed internationally due to to their inherently local nature, land and water impacts can be severe. Research in key areas is needed to manage oil sands operations effectively; including improved monitoring of ground and surface water In the Athabasca River received effluent from one bleached kraft pulp mill, three chemithermomechanical pulp and paper mills, one oil sands extraction, and a number of municipal effluents.

Mill effluent was detectable for more than km downstream from the mill and this effluent was the major source of odor to the Athabasca River   3.

The results show both the water quality and quantity have. Saline springs can provide clues as to the nature of groundwater flow, including how it relates to subsurface wastewater storage and the distribution of solutes in the landscape.
