dc.description.abstract The production of oil from the Athabasca oil sands is one of Alberta’s most profitable industries. However, with the extraction of bitumen from the oil sands comes the problem of what to do with the wastes. Tailings ponds are the oil industries biggest concern in regards to obtaining reclamation certificates. Their toxic properties and potential health risks to both humans and the environment make reclamation tricky. However, new techniques have recently been developed that may help speed up the reclamation process. en
