The Waste Dump Design for Erosion Control study was initiated in 1983. Several foothills/mountain coal mine waste dumps were selected for the purpose of evaluating the effects of final configuration on the amount of surface erosion occurring on those dump surfaces. A series of research plots was...
Abstract: The Lesueur landslide occurred on 3 September 1963 on the outside of a meander of the North Saskatchewan River in northeast Edmonton. The displaced volume was 0.76 Mm(3) of Pleistocene deposits and underlying Upper Cretaceous mudstones. The trigger of the landslide is believed to be...
Reflecting Productivity Losses due to Erosion in Physical and Financial Accounts for Agricultural SoilsDownload
The paper describes an approach to estimating the long-term impact of soil erosion, and applies that approach to data from the Province of Alberta, Canada. This paper relies upon a soil classification system established in Canada, known as the Canada Land Inventory (CLI). It also employs...
Slurry pipelines are widely utilized in most mining operations to transport the raw materials and the tailings. These pipelines typically suffer from high wear rates. For example, in Canada’s oil sands industry, pipeline wear rates of 1 cm/yr are considered representative. To generate and measure...
Stainless steel is one of the most commonly used materials in most industries. Excellent corrosion resistance of stainless steel is due to the formation of an oxide film on the surface (passive film), which protects the material from continuous corrosion attacks. When subjected to an attack...
Studies were continued in 1976 into the improvement of a five year old revegetated area on a tailings sand dike by the implementation of different fertilizer programs. In June, 1976 levels of available N, P, K and S were adequate for plant growth. However, even where fertilizers were added...
This document provides an evaluation of currently available rainfall runoff sediment production methodologies, identifies key parameters, and outlines field programs to gather data for model calibration. 1. RAINFALL RUNOFF There are two distinct requirements related to rainfall runoff. Firstly,...
