On May 30, 1968 G.C.O.S requested permission to discharge 110 x 106 ft3 of effluent from the sands tailings pond at the Fort McMurray site into the Athabasca River during periods of high river flow. G.C.O.S. outlined the events which made this request necessary in order that an adequate base be...
The Athabasca River serves as a source of water supply and a receiving stream for the wastes of two major industries and several communities. This report presents the summary of water quality in the Athabasca River during six sampling surveys (including a site at Fort McMurray, Tar Island, above...
Five sampling surveys were conducted on the waters of the Athabasca River and its tributaries during the winter of 1969 - 1970. Samples were taken to analyze the river waters for chemical composition and bacteriological constituents on a regular basis. Loadings of Biochemical Oxygen Demanding...
Athabasca tar sands study: Interim report on environmental constraints and research priorities for mining/hot water extraction technologyDownload
Recommendations: 1. Determine the location and capacity of natural drainage basins (if any) within the mineable area which could be dedicated to the storage of tailings without detriment to the environment. 2. In future the storage of tailings in dyked ponds on the banks of the Athabasca River...
The basic premise is that the demand for synthetic crude oil is from markets external to Canada, consequently one primary objective and five secondary objectives are suggested: 1. Alberta should regulate and control the Athabasca tar sands development for the socio-economic benefit of Albertans....
Some chemical and physical properties of soil materials associated with the reclamation of mined tar sands areasDownload
This document consists of two tables providing chemical and physical properties of soil, peat, overburden, spent sand and lean tar sand from Syncrude and Suncor.
Some methods for treating tar sands tailings: Part 1 - laboratory application of CO2 process and related testing of type "X" treatmentDownload
This report concerns some methods whereby the liquid waste from plants using the Clark hot water process to extract bitumen from tar sands is rendered clean. This report describes some novel experiments on liquid tailings from the G. C. O. S. plant, which may lead to an economically feasible...
In the Spring of 1971, the management of Syncrude contacted Renewable Resources Consulting Services regarding assessments of potential ecological impacts on the lease area. As a result, a preliminary investigation of ecological relationships was undertaken in July of 1971. This was followed by...
Athabasca tar sands development environmental impact statement matrix: Physical & chemical characteristicsDownload
The environmental impact assessment matrix is a simple way of summarizing which impacts are considered of greatest significance. It is a checklist or reminder of the full range of actions and impacts and is aimed at separating, as far as possible, factual information on magnitude of each type...
The study reported here was initiated on July 26, 1971, to provide ecological baseline information on Beaver Creek. Field surveys were carried out from August 7th to August 24th. Of particular interest to this study was the acquisition of quantitative data on fisheries populations as a means of...
