Evaluating trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) seedling stock characteristics in response to drought and out-planting on a reclamation siteDownload
Trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) seedlings often display reduced growth, or transplant shock, following out-planting largely due to moisture constraints. This thesis explores the influence of seedling size (root volume), root to stem ratio (RSR) and non-structural carbohydrate (NSC)...
Evaluation of substrate and amendment materials for soil reclamation at a diamond mine in the Northwest Territories, Canada.Download
Mine waste materials with potential for use in soil construction at a diamond mine in the Northwest Territories were evaluated to address physical and chemical limitations for plant establishment, growth and development. Substrates were glacial till, gravel, processed kimberlite, and 50:50 and...
This literature review provides an understanding of ecological resilience as a concept to promote successful land reclamation in Alberta’s mineable oil sands region by exploring four key issues: Defining ecological resilience for boreal forest ecosystems, and assessing whether this definition can...
Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta is the story of how Alberta’s land conservation and reclamation program came into being and how it has progressed over the past half century. Our goal is to provide an objective description for current and future...
Abstract: An 18.2-ha coal tailings impoundment that reached full capacity in 1989 has since been undergoing reclamation activities. The impoundment is sectioned into coarse, intermediate, and fine tails regions. The fine tails region, which consists of saturated silt and clay-size soil and coal...
Reclamation of oil sands fluid fine tailings (FFT) is a challenge for mine operators in Alberta because of their high water content and slow self-weight dewatering. Chemical additives, including polymer flocculants, are used by operators as a treatment technology to reduce volumes and increase...
Industrial development is transforming Alberta's landscapes, with largely unquantified effects on wildlife species. Open-pit mining is occurring on vast expanses, most notably for bitumen but also extensively for coal in a rich seam that traverses the province. Major concerns have developed over...
Bitumen recovery from oil sands in northeastern Alberta, Canada produces large volumes of tailings, which are deposited in mining areas that must be reclaimed upon mine closure. A new technology of non-segregated tailings (NST) developed by Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) was designed...
Growth of aspen and white spruce on naturally saline sites in northern Alberta: implications for development of boreal forest vegetation on reclaimed saline soils.Download
We examined height and basal area growth over time for trembling aspen and white spruce in plots along a salinity gradient at six naturally saline sites in northern Alberta, as a benchmark for forest productivity on reclaimed saline sites. We measured root distributions and analyzed foliage for...
These Guidelines are an expression of the Land Conservation and Reclamation Council's expectations with respect to the detailed content of applications for approvals of surface disturbances and the reclamation of lands.
