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...
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.
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....
A collection of working papers that helped inform the final report and recommendations, including: • Recommended Models for Calculating Diffusion From Point Sources With Applications to the Athabasca Bituminous Sands Area Western Research & Development Ltd • Meteorological Aspects of the...

Transportation corridor study. Volume 2 Appendix: Extracts from existing literature compiled for use of Study GroupDownload
With the large number of persons involved in this particular study it was decided that considerable time (money) could be saved by gathering into one volume extracts of available literature. Reports, studies by other groups, articles, information and literature in regard to environmental impact,...
An environmental study of the Athabasca tar sands: Report and recommendations to Alberta Department of the EnvironmentDownload
The following was the general concept of the work for which the Study was commissioned: • Identify the various methods that could be used for oil extraction and their comparative merits with respect to minimum adverse effects on the environment. • In considering the Clark method of tar sands...
