      The experiment was conducted using permissible doses of biosolids for soil used were 16 Mg/ha (dose I) as per 1 year and the dose of 45 Mg/ha (dose II)—cumulative 3 years dosage. The research area is characterized by low rainfall, strong wind erosion, intensive leaching of nutrients, and dissolved organic carbon migration.

Woody Debris Amendment Enhances Reclamation after Oil Sands Mining in Alberta, Canada Robyn L. Brown Cardno ENTRIX, Second Avenue, SuiteSeattle, WA, by: Introduction.

The Athabasca oil sands region in northern Alberta, Canada, is the largest single oil sands deposit in the world with an estimated trillion barrels of bitumen, a low quality crude oil mixed with sands and water [].Open-pit mining, one of the most common practices to recover oil from the oil sands in this region [], has disturbed large areas of mixedwood boreal forests.

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 affect plant establishment and soils were studied.

Annual Report for – Introduction: Following oil sands mining in Alberta, Canada, the main land management goal is to establish a functioning boreal forest ecosystem, including the understory plant community.

Vegetation management refers to the methods and tools used to selectively remove and/or add plant species (e.g. trees, shrubs, herbaceous and graminoid species) within a site or area. The objectives of vegetation management for reclamation include: • ensuring that target vegetation has the best possible growing conditions.

Understanding the effects of reclamation treatments on plant community development is an important step in setting realistic indicators and targets for reclamation of upland oil sands sites to forest ecosystems.

We examine trends in cover, richness, evenness, and community composition for four cover soil types (clay over overburden, clay over.

OIL SANDS MINING PIT. Typically a truck-and-shovel operation, oil sands is excavated from the mine pit using hydraulic or electric shovels. A typical shovel load of is about 90 tonnes.

Mined oil sands normally contains from 7 to 13% bitumen by weight. The oil sands is trucked to the Ore Preparation Plant using large heavy haulers. Archibald, H.A. Early ecosystem genesis using LFH and peat amendments on Athabasca oil sands reclamation.

Introduction. Oil sands mining in the Athabasca oil sands region (AOSR) has disturbed more than km 2 land to date, and only km 2 of the total disturbed area has been certified reclaimed (Alberta Environment and Parks ).Prior to mining disturbance, 64% of the landscape supported wetlands, with 23% of the land supporting uplands (Rooney et al.

The Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation administers and oversees the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program in Pennsylvania.

The bureau is responsible for resolving problems such as mine fires, mine subsidence, dangerous highwalls, open shafts and portals, mining-impacted water supplies and other hazards which have resulted from past coal mining.

This publication is intended to inform the discussion around using woody materials in reclamation programs. in the establishment of plants on disturbed sites.

oil sands mine site and found. zone. Second, oil sands reclamation had never focused on riparian areas before. Thus, there was little design and revegetation knowledge base to build upon. This paper reviews the process which led to the development of the Riparian Guide for the oil sands mining industry.

The establishment of a self-sustaining plant community is vital in marking reclamation success. Standards for revegetation on oil and gas lands vary by state but typically include a specified level of cover, density, vigor, resiliency, diversity; control of highly competitive non-native species; and freedom from noxious weeds.

Atmospheric sulfur and nitrogen deposition in the Athabasca oil sands region is correlated with foliar nutrient levels and soil chemical properties. Science of The Total Environment, R. Lalonde, B.
