Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #4. Soils.Download
Introduction This is the fourth report in this series of reports on the revegetation of disturbed non-cultivated areas in Alberta. It presents a change in emphasis from the previous reports. The first three reports dealt mainly with the vegetation using the soil zones as boundaries for the...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Report No. 1. Revegetation of disturbed sites such as pipelines, cutlines and stripmining areasDownload
Objectives: To determine which native plant species might be useful in the revegetation of disturbed sites such as pipelines, cutlines and strip mining areas. To make recommendations of which plants to include in further studies and to collect seed of these plants for future study.
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...
A group of 48 people from government, academia, consultants and the oil sands and plant production industries gathered on November 25, 2013 to discuss the current state of knowledge about shrubs and their current and future use in oil sands reclamation. The Workshop was organized around four key...
Monitoring was continued at instrumented sites which were selected in spring 1976, at Mildred Lake, Supertest Hill, the GCOS dike, and near Richardson Tower. Because of budget limitations, sites at Richardson were only monitored occasionally. However, information was obtained at a number of...
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...
Interim report on small mammal populations and related tree damage in the AOSERP study area, October and November 1977Download
The afforestation program in the Athabasca Oil Sands area has been only moderately successful, because of the high mortality of the planted seedlings--much of which Is believed to be the result of high levels of small mammal damage. The objectives of the present study were: (1) to determine the...
Monitoring Procedures for Wellsite, In-Situ Oil Sands and Coal Mine Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) – December 2014 UpdateDownload
The scope of the Monitoring Procedure for Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) project is to develop a geomatics-based monitoring system to support the Government of Alberta’s efforts for monitoring reclamation success. This software will support the decision making process to screen almost all oil...
Non-Native Plant Management And Restoration Of Foothills Fescue Grassland In Waterton Lakes National Park, AlbertaDownload
Non-native plants are a formidable barrier to native grassland restoration. Foothills fescue prairie restoration was investigated at three southern Alberta sites through reduction of non-native plant cover by steaming, herbicide and mowing; by increasing native plant cover with transplanting,...
A major barrier to reclamation after oil sands mining is lack of commercially available, diverse native plant seeds and propagules for revegetation. Potential of LFH (forest floor material) developed on coarse textured soil for establishing native plants and how salvage, placement and storage...
