Oil sands reclamation guidance documents prepared by the Cumulative Environmental Management Association and endorsed by the provincial government include lists of potential reclamation species and their characteristics (Alberta Environment 2008, 2010). This report consolidates and updates...
This proposal was prepared in response to Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program proposed Project No LS 7.1.1, which concerns small mammal research on their revegetation study areas. AOSERP is concerned about the potential disruption by rodents of reclamation efforts on the leases of...
Ectomycorrhizae of Jack Pine and Green Alder: Assessment for the Need for Innoculation, Development of Innoculation Techniques, and Outplanting Trials on Oil Sands TailingsDownload
The overall objectives of these studies were to characterize the mycorrhizal status of jack pine and green alder which are prime candidates as reclamation species for oil sand tailings and to determine the potential benefits of mycorrhizae on plant performance. This entailed determining the...
The Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) Subproject VE 7.1 was initiated to select suitable tree and shrub species for use in revegetating spoils and tailings resulting from oil sands mining operations in northeastern Alberta. As part of this program three field trials were...
Interim report on reclamation for afforestation by suitable native and introduced tree and shrub speciesDownload
AOSERP project VE 7.1 was initiated to carry out field investigations in the revegetation of oi1 sands mine wastes (waste dumps and tailing sand) with trees and shrubs. The main objective of the project is to select species of trees and shrubs which are adapted to conditions on these waste...
Treatment plots were established on the Syncrude Canada Ltd. Oil sands mine site to test the effect of a variety of mixtures of peat, mineral overburden, and tailings sand on establishment of an initial vegetation cover and productivity of planted trees and shrubs. Treatments consisted of nine...
In the summer of 1990, research plots were designed and constructed on the Syncrude Canada Ltd., mine site at Mildred lake to test the effect of thickness and quality of replaced soil over tailings sand on the performance of trees and shrubs. Treatments included three cap thicknesses (70, 50 and...
Performance of grasses, shrubs and trees on disturbed soil at the AOSERP Mildred Lake Camp experimental areaDownload
The plants referred to in this report were initially established on the AOSERP Mildred Lake Camp area in 1977. The objectives of the program were to establish grass, shrub and tree species for evaluation of their response, particularly their reproduction response, to the climatic and edaphic...
During 1976, a variety of methods and materials were used in the search for afforestation practices that will assist in the establishment of a self sustaining vegetation cover compatible with land use objectives for the A1berta oil sands area. The project study area is located on the Great,...
Report and Recommendations of the Task Force on Tree and Shrub Planting on Active Oil Sands Tailings DamsDownload
Dam safety concern over the planting of trees and woody shrubs is in conflict with progressive reclamation, which is also a desirable outcome for oil sands tailings dams. International dam safety practice commonly restricts trees and woody shrubs on the downstream slopes of dams to preclude...
