COSIA’s chief executive Wes Jickling looks back on the highlights of a standout year.
At Imperial’s Kearl mine, a key focus of tailings management is a thickener process that dewater fine tailings into a thicker stream, which can be dried and stored for future reclamation needs.
Michael Wendlandt spent the summer gathering wetland samples in the oil sands region as part of a field research team. He describes what a typical day in the field is like.
Warren Zubot is leading the team behind an exciting innovation that’s targeting faster, more effective reclamation of tailings areas.
COSIA sat down with Water Director John Brogly to find out more about mine water release, an important future step in the reclamation of oil sands mines.
The next generation of mining technologies is revolutionizing oil sands mining operations, carrying the sector into the digital age. An array of innovation, everything from automated truck fleets to artificial intelligence, is significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions, boosting safety and efficiency, and lowering operating costs across mine sites in Canada and around the world.
If you are wondering what game changing innovations are driving down greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and helping to turn the corner on climate change, look no farther than carbon capture and storage (CCS). This proven clean technology has been deployed in oil fields for decades and the industry has been a pioneer in its development.
