The objectives of the study are to: • conduct a review of readily available information on the establishment and management of woody plants on level and gently sloping (less than 15 percent) amended tailings sand and other similar sites; and • prepare a critical evaluation of the information and...
Revegetation of Oil Sands Tailings: Growth Improvement of Silver-berry and Buffalo-berry by Inoculation with Mycorrhizal Fungi and N2-fixing BacteriaDownload
The ability of actinorhizal shrubs to tolerate inhospitable conditions while improving soil fertility and organic matter status has led to increased usage of these plants for land reclamation and amenity planting purposes. Silver-berry and buffalo-berry are two such shrubs which are being tested...
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...
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 Alberta oil sands area. The project study area is located on the Great,...
Techman Engineering Ltd. was jointly commissioned by the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee and the Oil Sands Environmental Study Group to obtain state-of-the-art information on the propagation of selected woody plants. The purpose was: a) to obtain information on the propagation...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
