Numerical Modelling of the Impact of Cover Thickness on the Long-term Water Balance of Reclamation Soil Covers Over Lean Oil Sands Overburden

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Syncrude Canada Ltd. (SCL) is undertaking a watershed scale research program to evaluate the performance of reclamation covers placed over lean oil sands (LOS) at the Fort Hills dump at the Aurora North mine site. This research study is referred to as the Aurora Capping Study (ACS). A key element of the ACS is the assessment of the water balance for alternate cover designs in regard to their adequacy to meet site vegetation growth requirements.
