The Aurora Mine is planned for development in four stages of investment in bitumen production. Each stage includes a high capacity (8000 tonnes per hour) Low Energy Extraction Process utilizing hydrotransport. The first two stages (Aurora North) share a common truck-shovel mine pit on Oil Sands Leases 10, 12 and 34. Stages three and four (Aurora South) will be similarly configured on Lease 31. In total, the four trains of extraction will yield approximately 25 million cubic metres of bitumen per year. Production from the Mildred Lake West Mine will be replaced in two stages by the first two trains of Aurora North. The first stage (2000-2002) will replace production from the north quadrant of the Mildred Lake West Mine. The second stage (2003-2007) will replace production from the south quadrant of the West Mine. The third and fourth stages will replace the Mildred Lake North Mine when it is depleted and/or will be used to provide additional bitumen for production of bitumen blends, sour blends, or sweet synthetic crude oil blends. An Environmental Impact Assessment (\"EIA\") for the Aurora Mine has been prepared by independent scientists under the overall direction of Bovar Environmental. The EIA has been prepared in accordance with the Terms of Reference established by the Director of Environmental Assessment, pursuant to Division 1 of Part II of EPEA. NOTE: This set of documents includes some prepared for Suncor's Steepbank EIA that were included in Syncrude's EIA. They are included here to provide a complete record.
