The Canadian Athabasca Oil Sands Deposit (north-eastern Alberta) contains vast quantities of bitumen emplaced in the Lower Cretaceous (Albian - Aptian) sandstones of the Clearwater - McMurray . In the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR) of Canada, surface mining for oil sands have completely altered the landscape from boreal forests and wetlands into mine pits, dumps, and tailings ponds. By , the disturbed lands already covered an area of km 2, which account for about % of Alberta’s boreal forest [ 1 ].

    Conference: Lithological discrimination and correlation in oil sands using rock magnetic properties. Athabasca is a dynamic energy company poised to unlock bitumen from Canada’s vast oil sands region and light oil from its Deep Basin play in northern Alberta. It has excellent assets, a large.
