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,...
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...
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...
Geomorphic landform design and long-term assessment of tailings storage facilities in the Athabasca oil sandsDownload
In stark contrast to historic mine abandonment, current international best practices in mine reclamation call for geomorphic designs and stability (physical and chemical) for a minimum of 1000 years. Current regulations in Alberta state that post-mining landforms shall be maintenance-free with...
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...
Long chained polymers were evaluated for their impact on reducing pipe erosion during two-phase flow. The research study was compartmentalized into three categories. One of the components of this study investigated the erosion of different materials in an attempt to find a faster eroding...
Re-establishment of hummock topography promotes tree regeneration on highly disturbed moderate-rich fens
Re-establishment of hummock topography promotes tree regeneration on highly disturbed moderate-rich fensDownload
Winter exploration of oil sands deposits underlying wooded fens mostly eliminates the hummock-hollow topography on drilling pads and the ice roads leading to them, after their abandonment in spring. Recovery of black spruce (Picea mariana (P. Mill.) B.S.P.) and tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi)...
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...
Sediment in storm sewers attracts increasing attentions in recent years due to two major issues including the sewer blockage and the environmental contamination. Pollutants attached to fine sediment surface may adversely affect aquatic life and natural water bodies. Excessive sediment deposition...
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...
